Why Graduate: A Talk with Boys and Girls

New York, New York: Looseleaf Education, Inc., 1926. A fascinating look into social values surrounding education in 1926, from a booklet encouraging young people to pursue education and graduate from high school: "Most of the really great men of America have found themselves, as the saying is, in their high school, academy, or preparatory school life. Those are the years in which one is likely to go wrong or right. They are the turning-point years in most lives" (p. 16). Offers young people reasons to graduate, such as better opportunities, pay, and appreciation of life. Includes a form on the inside of the upper wrapper, asking the student about their favorite subject, what extra curricular activities they take part in, and-- most interestingly-- asks them to grade themselves 1-3 in different personal qualities including: Alert, Energetic, Square, Polite, Reliable, Industrious, Orderly, Optimistic, etc. Single vol. (6" by 4.25"), pp. 16, original printed self wrps. Very good. Toned. Vertical crease. A couple minor short tears to spine.
