This episode is from the WNYC archives. It may contain language which is no longer politically or socially appropriate.

Recording begins with Dewey's speech (no intro), which touches on working with youth, curbing juvenile delinquency, and the State Youth Program. "In this industrial society of ours, we have followed our very special gifts to create a very special high living standard without a corresponding increase in individual responsibility. ...we haven't yet figured out how to increase a sense of parental or community or neighbor responsibility among ourselves or our children to a sufficient degree."

Includes a speech by an unnamed speaker. Some rough editing that cuts in to speakers.
