The Shame of American Education.
Skinner, B. F.
American Psychologist, v39 n9 p947-54 Sep 1984
Students could learn more efficiently if educational goals were clarified, each student was permitted to advance at his or her own rate, and instructional materials were designed to encourage motivation, not fear of punishment. The technology and pedagogical knowledge exist to effect these changes, but teacher training is misdirected. (KH)
