The Meanings of Education.
Miller, Ronald J.
Humanist, v44 n2 p14-16 Mar-Apr 1984
Criticizes the conclusions of the National Commission on Excellence in Education report, with its emphasis on "basic" skills. Humanists believe that children possess insatiable curiosity and have an inner sense of direction. It is imagination, initiative, and idiosyncracy which should be encouraged, not passive memorizing of facts. (CS)
