Reason for My Objections to the Platoon Plan

by Frederick G. Bonser 1925

I HAVE been asked by the managing editor of THE RECORD whether I have any comment to make upon the foregoing article. Rather than making extended comment, I am asking that the short paper upon which most of the discussion is based be printed in full, so that the reader may have the omitted portions as well as those quoted. If my paper seems written "grudgingly" in any part I regret it and apologize. Nor had I any thought of attempting to "discredit" the platoon school movement "in order to further the interests of any particular school of thought." My sole and sincere desire is to aid in giving to children the best elementary education possible. If one genuinely believes that a movement tends to delay progress along lines which he regards as most fundamental, is it not his privilege, indeed his obligation, to speak out?
