ABSTRACT
This article presents appraisals of general education in Providence, Rhode Island. In Providence schools, there are no courses or subject combinations which pupils must elect in the seventh or eighth grade and which they must complete in order to obtain a special diploma. Instead, each pupil is required to take certain core subjects each year in grades seven to twelve, and then to choose elective subjects suited to his own interests, abilities and achievements under the guidance of his class counselor.
