Education as Horticulture: Some Growth Theorists and Their Critics.
Darling, John
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v16 n2 p173-85 1982
Analyzes criticism of the horticulture theory of education, i.e., the teacher is the gardener, the child a growing plant. Contrasts growth theories of A. S. Neill and Rousseau and concludes that growth theory and trusting the individual to develop to his full potential are worthy ideas. (KC)
