Efficiency Jettisoned: Unacknowledged Changes in the Curriculum Thought of John Franklin Bobbitt.
Null, J. Wesley
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v15 n1 p35-42 Fall 1999
Often classified as efficiency-minded, Bobbitt changed his position in his final book, "Curriculum of Modern Education." This article examines four later ideas: the importance of general education, schools' inability to predetermine students' future lives and roles, schools' need to develop students' intellect, and Bobbitt's respect for great books. (Contains 26 references.) (MLH)
