THE TEACHER IN THE ACTIVIST SCHOOL
AbstractIt has long been realized that an educational system cannot be better than its teachers. Changes in curricula and regulations mean very little unless they are accompanied by understanding and a desire to change on the part of those who interpret courses in the classroom. Many educators are convinced that the way in which a child is taught is at least as important as what he is taught. This does not necessarily discredit the content of courses in the elementary or the high school. It merely recognizes first that the habits and attitudes which a child acquires may be more permanent than the information which the teacher relays and second, that leading a child to think, to organize, to relate, and to discriminate is much more significant than insisting on recall. Activist educaton accepts both of these principles.
