Many authorities omit to consider the class teacher's point of view when dealing with the curriculum, and many specialists are equally blind about their own subjects. It is an interesting question as to how much the curriculum of the ordinary school should be modified for the child of special aptitude. The aim of education is of great help both in framing a curriculum and in considering the methods of teaching. It is clear that any reform must begin in the junior school and that according to the results achieved in that department the curriculum of the senior school should be modified. Payment by results was the worst form of State organization, partly because it took the curriculum and organization of the school almost entirely out of the teachers' hands. The teachers are a most important part in the child's environment, and it is extremely doubtful if a school that has unhappy and discontented staff can have happy well-educated pupils.
