Abstract

Though science and education as a whole are currently and properly geared to the war effort, it is commendable that teachers and administrators are, nevertheless, already giving foresighted attention to desirable patterns of postwar instruction and matters of permanent curricular policy. While perhaps no one can as yet predict the exact social pattern of a world at peace nor fully foretell its demands upon education, certain emergent trends already delineate the scope of the problem and the probable areas of major change. Science is destined to play an important role in peace as it has in war but with notable shifts in emphasis. It consequently becomes the moral obligation of scientists to inventory the situation, and to pool information with a view to formulation of a program of action which embodies the best professional judgment bearing upon science education in the postwar world. The ensuing discussion deals with certain important factors which seem destined to have a great influence on the teaching of science and biology.
