As he learns to live in school our student learns to subjugate his own desires to the will of the teacher and to subdue his own actions in the interest of the common good.
He learns to be passive and to acquiesce to the network of rules, regulations, and routines in which he is embedded.
He learns to tolerate petty frustrations and accept the plans and policies of higher authorities, even when their rationale is unexplained and their meaning unclear.
there are four unpublicized features of school life:
delay, denial, interruption, and social distraction. Each is produced, in part by the crowded conditions of the classroom
of equal importance is the fact that schools are basically evaluative setting.
teachers are indeed more powerful than students,in the sense of having greater responsibility for giving shape for classroom events .
Mid-century curriculum at education's center stage. Curriculum through 1969
The more things change,,,, The more they stay the same

-Much has not changed in a school room in 100 years .

-Diversity in subjects but other activities remain the same across classrooms.

-More time in the classroom than any other place teacher more familiar than family.
