AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK
Throughout the nation next week the schools are observ

Week the schools make various plans which will, in some

has an equal chance to get an education. We study the arts,
literature, science, and history. The question is: “Will
these subjects help us in our world of tomorrow?”

be of no great value to us in the future. Because of this,
the schools are now striving to make education progress as
the nation progresses. Often when a school recognizes a

Other schools have made changes in their educational
programs. Other schools have progressed with the nation.
High Point schools must continue to do the same, and
High Point school students must continue to utilize educa
tional opportunities so that they may be better fitted to
accept the challenges of tomorrow.—D. G. B.
