Properly, courses were modified, new types of schools appeared, mechanic arts or polytechnic courses and schools, commercial or business public high schools supplemented the older classical or Latin schools, and the end is not yet. The impulse of interest has served to carry on into the specialized high school a larger percentage of students than heretofore, and the registration in secondary schools has passed the million mark. Until recently the concessions of the college in the way of more liberal entrance requirements were comparatively few. In the transitional stage even the colleges for engineering and similar new divisions of the curriculum held to an entrance schedule of the traditional type. The high schools, struggling to exercise the same freedom as the colleges in the diversification of their curricula, complained sharply of the domination of the secondary schools by the colleges and universities, and squarely asserted the equivalence in disciplinary and cultural values of the newer subjects, at least science, modern language, and history, with the classics and mathematics. Open warfare was waged against Greek in at least one Northwestern State, where the inspector of high schools is said to have set out deliberately _and avowedly to banish Greek from every public high school in the State, and after years of campaigning achieved his purpose. The last decade has witnzwsed a remarkable liberalizing of the requirements for admission to colleges and universities of the country, especially the State-supported institutions, whose relations with the high schools are probably more direct, if...

Description : Like many black school principals, Ulysses Byas, who served the Gainesville, Georgia, school system in the 1950s and 1960s, was reverently addressed by community members as "Professor." He kept copious notes and records throughout his career, documenting efforts to improve the education of blacks. Through conversations with Byas and access to his extensive archives on his principalship, Vanessa Siddle Walker finds that black principals were well positioned in the community to serve as conduits of ideas, knowledge, and tools to support black resistance to officially sanctioned regressive educational systems in the Jim Crow South. Walker explains that principals participated in local, regional, and national associations, comprising a black educational network through which power structures were formed and ideas were spread to schools across the South. The professor enabled local school empowerment and applied the collective wisdom of the network to pursue common school projects such as pressuring school superintendents for funding, structuring professional development for teachers, and generating local action that was informed by research in academic practice. The professor was uniquely positioned to learn about and deploy resources made available through these networks. Walker's record of the transfer of ideology from black organizations into a local setting illuminates the remembered activities of black schools throughout the South and recalls for a new generation the role of the professor in uplifting black communities.
