The parents’ Association of the University, Elementary, and High Schools may legitimately ask what advantages it gets from the connection between these Schools and the University. In the largest School of Education in the country, those of Columbia University in New York, the secondary and elementary schools are not in as close connection with the University as that which subsists here in Chicago. The University, Elementary, and High Schools are not primarily practice schools. Certainly the intention with which these schools have been brought into the University has been that they should be vital parts of the whole institution. The history of the Schools and the University emphatically affirms the purpose of maintaining this cooperation. There have been two problems in elementary and secondary education. One was the problem of the way that which is to be learned should be presented. The other is the problem of the subject-matter of the curriculum itself, what shall be taught.
