The article explores the aspects of the preparation of junior high teachers. Little emphasis is given in the teacher-training programs to provide an intelligent understanding of those great variations which psychologists have found in the junior high years. Over-specification appears to be the leading short-coming of the subject-matter preparation. If the widened range of interests of the early adolescent are to be met with sympathy and encouragement instead of frustration and circumvention, a broad and general program of preparation must replace the narrow and mannerised pattern of subject-field emphasis.
