"Education Meets the Challenge of Change" is the theme for the 42nd annual American Education Week, Nov. 11-17. Purpose is to make every American aware of the important role education plays in a democracy. Schools this week offer an opportunity to inform the general public about their p u r -1 poses, methods, achievements, nerds and problems. Parents and interested persons will learn a lot by visiting the schools during American Education Week. Here's what to look for: Physical conditions - It the school old and rickety? Are there safety hazards? Is it kept clean? Are the rooms ade-! quately lighted and ventilated? j Are they over-crowded with desks? Educational values - Are there enough well-trained, enthusiastic teachers? Are the classes no larger than 25 or so? Are the textbooks well-written and up-to-date? Are there film and slide projectors, phonographs, tape recorders, - maybe even TV sets or teaching machines? Are the science laboratories adequate? Financial considerations - Is there enough money to do a good job, hire enough teachers, buy enough equipment, put up builrVngs as needed and maintain the buildings presently in use? Sponsors of American Education Week are the National Education Association.
