Education: Interest and Merit vs. Coercion and Dole; Curiosity vs. "Motivation."
Dice, Nanette; Mackey, Barbara
The authors survey the lifelong process of education and focus on certain issues enhancing or inhibiting learning. They summarize their conclusions in the following six points: (1) at all age levels learning programs of varying kinds need to be developed to fit students of varying learning styles and teachers of varying teaching styles; (2) these programs should allow for observing, sampling, and debate between both faculty and students; (3) interaction between students and teachers of varying styles can develop respect for the human uniqueness of both; (4) broadened work-study programs and available low interest loans will further youth's transition to adulthood through financial independence; (5) broadened merit scholarships without regard to parents' financial status will encourage many students; and (6) learning as a life-long process focuses on identity, independence, social and personal intimacy as well as facts and skills.
