The one room schoolhouse plan for education, which stipulates that one lead professor works with a small group of students in most of their major courses during their junior, senior, and graduate years, is proposed. The program would rely on regular courses and faculty to supply the technical content of some major courses and all the minor courses. The intent is to have a dedicated and strongly interactive group that will overcome the distracting effects of today's information explosion, technology explosion, and expanded curricula. To this end, the relevant curriculum factors (course selection, course priorities, and course contents) will be more efficiently managed, taught, and coordinated. Within the limitations of time and energy, the students should cover more effectively and widely the disparate curriculums of both major and minor courses in the program
