The organization of the classroom procedures will depend upon the objectives and aims of the school, the community, the administrators, the teachers, and the students. If one of the objectives is the development of responsible behavior the classroom planning and organization will be different from what it would be if the objectives were the acquisition of knowledge and skills. The newer and broader concept of education makes interaction and democratic living a part of any classroom program. With the ultimate goal of attaining the proper balance between learning necessary fundamentals and democratic behavior, three definite purposes for grouping in the classroom can be stated. The first is to teach democratic living; the second reason is to meet the differing needs with greater precision; and third, but no less important, is to make for a happier learning experience for the children.
