A comparative study of the multigraded classroom and the single-graded classroom in the elementary school.
The education of America's children has been a concern of educators and lay people since our nation was created. It has been an ongoing concern which has tried to focus on meeting the needs of each child. And yet, even though the concern for individual educational needs has been recognized, little has been done to compensate for the vast differences which exist in children. To the contrary, for many years, since the passing of the "little red schoolhouse," children have been placed in a graded lock-step type of education which assumes that all children, upon reaching a given chronological age, are ready to absorb a given instructional diet at the same rate.
