dc.description.abstract For several years I have worked in industry, especially in and around coal mines. In addition, I have taught at the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology, and I am presently teaching Junior High School. In every instance I have observed a wide variety of individuals who exhibited a general intelligence, and an aptitude for training, far beyond what one would expect considering their academic background. My curiosity in this regard has led me to the topic of this thesis. It is an effort to determine the proportion of students who possessed average or better intelligence but failed to progress beyond Junior High School under the one track system in the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, which is the locale of the study. The study will also attempt to discover whether or not these students are confined to one geographic or social sphere.
