A discussion of scholastic competition in early American schools and the effect of increasing numbers of female students. Suggests that the presence of girls in the classroom prompted a reconsideration of the accepted practice of encouraging student competition. Educators saw the need for educating women, but competition conflicted with their ideal of women as the moral guardians of family and country. (BC)
