The problem of juvenile delinquency is one that has received increasing emphasis during the past ten years. The rise and spread of the Coordinating Council Movement, the number of surveys made by public and private agencies on the subject, the increasing number of books published that deal with the problem and the new knowledge that has come from the Child Welfare Centers, the psychiatrists, and the psychologiste have all been noted and used by the various groups of interested citizens. Not only have we seen the rise of leisure time activities that are designed to meet the needs of the individual as well on the exceptional child, but we cannot forget the philosophy behind the present day educational theory that is re- calving more and more emphasis. The development of the guidance program, the new and broader concept of education as "all and any experience that widens the horizons of the ch114", and the on the one work program in Child Welfare Centers have all helped to bring the problem of how to lower the juvenile delinquency rate to the fore.
