High School Reform: Stuffing the Turkeys.
Winn, Ira
Phi Delta Kappan, v65 n3 p184-85 Nov 1983
This essay criticizes as myths (1) a view of students as receptacles for information, (2) the assumption that new knowledge can be poured into an inelastic school year, and (3) the assurance that students are magically ready for work or college at 18. Instead, student motivation is offered as the key to reform. (MJL)
