During the depression public education has been subjected to serve criticism by the taxpayers who are demanding retrenchment in the schools. Some critics have asserted that the methods of teaching and the subject matter of such basic courses as English have undergone few changes since those days of the little red school house when a teacher could be hired for a "song".
