ABSTRACT
To some people, teacher-pupil planning is just a lot of ‘pretty talk.’ And group planners—in their enthusiasm for cooperative effort—sometimes lose sight of well-meant criticism of their methods. H. H. Giles of West Georgia College, Carrollton, brings together in this article arguments both for and against student participation in planning and, through careful analysis of the strongholds of both sides, leads us logically to the conclusion that group planning is fundamental to education in a democracy.
