“The reason that the 19th century child could take the curriculum and the school room of his time with some seriousness was that he knew there was a considerable relation between what was going on in the schoolroom and what was going on outside. That is no longer true we still go on 19th century style with classified subjects, instruction by stenciling on brain pans and regurgitating an exam form. This is all 19th century factory system school work but it’s no longer supported by the outside environment.”
