Alienation from Learning: School Effects on Students.
Travis, Jon E.
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v1 n4 p434-48 Oct 1995
During their elementary school years, many students develop a dislike for school. Their alienation is due partly to the school environment and discouraging educator behaviors. Children sense they are overly assessed and classified, arbitrarily promoted, confined to large groups, and bound to a routine work schedule that values competition and cultural uniformity.
