Abstract: If an educational system is to merit the appelation of an effective and efficient institution, it must of necessity meet the needs of those for whom it is intended. If it falls to accomplish this, its efforts are of no avail and it defeats its purpose. Each school in a system may be meeting the minimum requirements of the State Board of Education, thereby remaining on the accredited list; however, it does not follow necessarily that the educational unit is meeting the needs of the patrons of the school and of those who live in the community. In order to determine the common needs of the patrons of any school, it becomes imperative that each locality be treated as an individual community. When the individuality of the community is taken into account, it becomes apparent that there is no fixed rule by which an educational standard can be set up that will do justice to each person or to all the people in any locality. Moreover the needs of the people change according to the standards of living and the occupational habits found in the area.
