Round and around

“We have yielded to the arrogance of “big businessmen,” consented to measure results of educational efforts in terms of price and product. Education deals with human organisms…it’s not analogous to a standardizable manufacturing process. It must measure its efficiency not in terms of promotions per dollar of expenditure, nor student-hours per dollar of salary, but rather increased humanism, … increased capacity to appreciate”. -The American Teacher 1912
