ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the changes that are to be affected in social science curricula in high schools of the U.S. Contemporary social, economic and political issues are beginning to transform curricula of social science from archaic forms of the dead past to human forms of the living present. Educators are quick to see the need and the advantage of changing education curricula in accordance with this vast current of change and transformation that is affecting the organized life of humanity to its very foundation. Education and society as a whole is beginning to call out to the youth to prepare themselves to be better builders of civilization than have been their progenitors.
