We Won't Reform Schools by Turning Back.
Wolfthal, Maurice
Educational Leadership, v44 n1 p50-52 Sep 1986
In response to recent nostalgia about education's past, the author reviews the reality of educational history. In the 1950s schools were affected by disruption and violence. In the 1930s declining standards were cited. In the teens there was a 50 percent dropout rate. In the 1900s problems of student boredom and violence were documented. (MD)
