Education for a New Society. Fastback Series, No. 24.
Conventional education has impeded human progress. It has had a mistaken sense of values, established systems of evaluation that blocked real learning, and upheld a routine that made the school an experiment in endurance. It has cherished patience rather than enthusiasm and given the teacher mainly a custodial function, so that he has become a servant of the status quo. A new system of education advocated by the author here is infinitely open to stimulus and experience. Deliberately unstructured, such a system would concentrate on the total cultural enterprise and abhor any form of isolation--person, social, political, or economic. The author explains how this system of education could be effected. (Author/JF)
