During American Education Week the schools make various plans which will, in some way, encourage the education of the students for the stu dent’s good. We students of America are very fortunate. Each of us 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?” We can understand that some of the subjects today will 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 change in education the majority of the people who oppose this change will make it impossible for school adoption. From our own experience, we know that the education of yesterday will not come up to the standards of tomorrow. This, naturally, emphasizes the fact that we, the students of today, should be taught the things which are necessary for our success tomorrow. We should know how to make successful contacts with people and how to express our ideas so that they may be understood. 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.
