The article focuses on the benefits and advantages after the distribution of educational wealth to the anchorage of old educational shibboleths in the U.S. Learning is not problem-solving instead of fact-getting but problem-solving through fact-getting. The freedom that is the product of self-discipline remains the highest star of educational objectives. Moreover, another fundamental and highly desirable earmark of an educated person is the ability to cooperate. It is not enough, however, to state one's educational objectives, nor to suggest that they require for their fulfillment a curriculum in which ideas and life-experience shall be articulated.
