Nurturing the Life of the Mind: If Schools Don't Value Intellect, Who Will?
Vail, Kathleen
American School Board Journal, v188 n1 p19-23 Jan 2001
If schools were strongholds of intellect, the most academically able would be stars. Gifted kids often have trouble with school; academically uninterested kids enjoy cult-hero status; and the humanities are undervalued. Schools' purpose has been to train future employees and consumers, not create intellectual citizens. (MLH)
