ABCs of DumbDown: “The ‘Skinner Box’ School” “…to control a child’s attitudes and values it is first necessary to modify the child’s behavior”

is from the field of psychology, not education;

is not education at all;
it is but the hollow substitute of psychological conditioning or,
as it is sometimes called, behavior modification.”
~Jed Brown, “The ‘Skinner Box’ School” [emphasis added]
