On Being Number One: Competition in Education
Campbell, David N.
Phi Delta Kappan, 56, 2, 143-146, Oct 74
Competition, in classrooms as on the athletic fields, could destroy childhood and distort an entire lifetime. In an educational institution there is no need for grading, promotion, ranking, tracking, or labeling. A tremendous burden would be removed if teachers could teach without "evaluation," if people would come to school to learn rather than for credit, and if the sole motivation for learning would become interest.
