Cold War in the Classroom: Kilpatrick's Student Years at Mercer

by Donald D. Chipman & Carl B. McDonald - 1982

As a student at Mercer University (Georgia) from 1888-91, William Kilpatrick observed that teachers and pupils stood in opposition to each other and that cheating was a "natural process." The granting of honors was viewed by Kilpatrick as detrimental and as a way of pitting students against each other. Kilpatrick also advocated the abolition of the grading system. (Source: ERIC)
