' Sunset Song': play by Lewis Grassic Gibbon, part 1.

BBC Home Service Scottish

by James L. Henderson
The differences between American and British youth are numerous, and familiar enough, in their outer forms. But do these reflect contrasts, perhaps less familiar, in the respective methods of education and upbringing? James Henderson's recent experience of these fields suggests to him a link between child upbringing in both countries and the differing conceptions of democracy in each.
