Teachers: Grist for the Laurentian millstones

Kevin Harris
Vol 2, Number 1, p.30
Teachers (and not just elementary ones) are in a vile and false position: they (and their pupils) are caught and ground between the millstones of idealism and materialism: and school is the place (although not the only place) where these millstones meet. What is sadly lacking, however, is a significantly rigorous analysis of the causes and nature of the resultant floury mess. The time has surely come for philosophers to get into this act; and this paper is a tentative beginning in that area.
