Francis Parker – Education

Posted in Uncategorized by dilettanteventures on 03/31/2012

Bought at home, bought at school, with merits, per-cents, and prizes, bought in college and university by the offer of high places, the young man with a finished education stands in the world’s market-place and cries: “I’m for sale; what will you give for me ?”…The cultivation of the reward system in our schools is the cultivation of inordinate ambition, the sinking of every other motive into the one of personal success. – Francis Parker
