Let's Stop Teaching and Let Our Children Learn.
Kay, Robert E.
Social Policy, v22 n1 p8-12 Sum 1991
Compulsory education may be counterproductive for many students. Most children enter school curious/confident/enthusiastic. Successful students exit bored/obedient/passive by simply "getting through," and others perform poorly because of environmental/societal factors. Also, the current emphasis on formalized accountability methods distorts learning and makes teaching more difficult. Alternative stimulating programs are highlighted. (SLD)
