Elwood P. Cubberley was wrong then and is STILL wrong today!

"Our schools are, in a sense, factories, in which the raw products (children) are to be shaped and fashioned into products to meet the various demands of life. The specifications for manufacturing come from the demands of twentieth-century civilization, and it is the business of the school to build its pupils according to the specifications laid down."     Elwood P. Cubberley

Cubberley lived from 1868 to 1941 and was Dean of Standford University School of Education. Well, that explains it.
