A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KOLO KWU3 WOt Qobur City lM BM One word makes a lot of difference T HAVEFELT FOR ALONG time that the surest way of communism is to know what communism really is This conviction I should add was deepened andintensi fied by my own firsthand gb servation of in threej Eas Germany and Russia itself As recently as a decade ago the suggestion that students should be taught about Marx ism prompted bristling objec tions among Americans Intro ducing the subject in high school would have been re garded as unthinkable The very idea was regarded as ing on treason Now alhlhat is in process of change Courses on communism are being taught in a rapidly growing number of high schools Impelled by a strong senseof urgency school authorities have been developing new course out lines assembling study materi als drawing1 up reading lists and issuing instructions to teach ers on this newly emphasized field of study In some cases school authori ties have acted under mandate of state legislatures but mostly state departments of education or local boards of education have taken the initiative Either way its clear that schools are responding growingde mand that the risinggeneration havea tbe eneniy with which the free world contends What to be instinctive opposition to enter ing this field resulted from a sadly mistaken assumption The fear was that our schools woulc be teaching communism There was a failure to understand that they would be teaching ABOUT communism And whal a world of difference there is between teaching ABOUT com munism and TEACHING com munism between teaching ABOUT communism and advo cating communism Significant reflection of the new turn of mind has been pro vided by a reversal of position on the subject by such organ izations as the American Bar Association and the American Leglon Both groups are now on recordas favoring such instruc tion Indeed both have insti tuted programs on their own to forward that objective While the high school level is generally favored there are communities in which the pu to the nature of communism is begun in a low er grade Thats a problem Which I personally have always been content to leave with the educators I frankly dont know the answer In Washington D C and In Indianapolis youngsters get their first Contacts withJ the subject at the sixth grade level Geography and cultural charac teristics of the USSR are touched on in social studies courses As the subject unfolds the pupils are introduced to the contrasts between the commu nist and the democratic ap proach to such things tion religion social justice movement of population elec tions freedom of speech press and assembly arrest and search trial jury private property and trade unions The primary purpose ofthe instruction is to strengthen the individual pupils understanding and appreciation of American democracy and to arm him ideologically for any direct en counter with communism or
