“We make the child fit the school. The school of tomorrow will make the school fit the child. Education is the acquistion of power and ability, not an accumulation of facts. School should aim at making character.
School should cease to educate the youth away from life. The way to train for life is to begin to live that life at once. School should be shaped to this end. Non-essentials and busy-work nonsense should be eliminated.“
JOHN M. MILLS – 1916 – JOURNAL OF EDUCATION
