Overall I like the points in this article, but one detail seems really off. He says, "Schools have not changed much in the last 300 years." The whole class instruction schools that he is talking about start with Horace Mann in the mid 19th century. In most of the country they are just over 100 years old. In the one room school house students were taught in small groups, were often taught by their peers, and did much of their practice in school.
