Excerpt from Annual Report of the School Committee of the City of Boston, 1901

In my report of last year was made a brief statement of reasons for thinking that a thorough reconstruction of the high school course of study was desirable. This statement did not relate to the two Latin Schools, the sole function of which is to pre pare boys and girls for college; nor to the Mechanic Arts High School, which has a course of study appropriate to the special purposes of that school; but it related to the English High, the Girls' High, and the six (soon to be seven) district high schools, which have a course of study supposed to afford a good general preparation for the duties of life. It is this latter course, now followed by three-fourths of all the high school pupils in the city, which is believed to call for a thorough reconstruction.

The main question for consideration is whether this course does or does not afford the best prepara tion for the duties of life that can be offered to the boys and girls whose school days usually end with the high school. If it does, nothing more need be said or done; if it does not, and my belief is that it does not, then it is incumbent on me to propose a better, and advocate its adoption.
