dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this book is to document accurately the history of public education in the Wichita school district. In order to record the goals and achievements, it has been necessary to examine the multifaceted background of conflict, confusion, and compromise. The story of a school district is also the story of a community's commitment to education. Some of the experiences portrayed are redundant in nature while other experiences emphasize different educational philosophies and methods, and new approaches in the operation of the schools.en_US
