Crisis in the Classroom: A Diagnosis, with Suggestion for Remedy.
Silberman, Charles E.
Public schools in America, because they are obsessed with petty regulations and sterile mediocrity, destroy the natural inquisitive and creative spirits of children. A genuinely humane education must teach aesthetic and moral values as well as subject matter. This educational philosophy demands that learning be centered around the child's interests and experiences, with teachers having the responsibility to structure the learning environment in the best possible way.
