The 1970's have been described by many as the "decade of change." We are told that we can expect these changes to make themselves known in every facet of our lives. In order to continue to achieve its objectives of an educated populace, education in our schools must also change. Our educational system must meet the needs of the student body, and this education must be meaningful to the students that it serves. In September, 1970, Bangor High School will make an attempt to meet the needs of her students. A student is going to be offered a new and totally different learning expreience. Instead of being a member of a class exposed five periods a day, five days a week, to whatever is prepared for the rest of the class, he himself is the focal point. Whatever he achieves begins with him. Whatever learning is accomplished is not accomplished by a class in which the individual student may or may not be an active participating member; it is accomplished by the student doing his own reading, making his own experiments, completing his own projects, and taking his own tests at his own pace.
