Abstract: The investigator became very concerned after hearing and reading some of the criticisms of the present family living classes on the secondary level. One of these criticisms is that the family living course is not challenging enough for the better students and another is that only the weaker students should be advised to elect the course. The writer has had experience teaching family living in a secondary school and believes that these criticisms have been based primarily on opinions and individual or isolated experiences. No difference has been observed by the writer between the students who elect family living courses and those who do not elect the courses.
