Seite 3 - The moral responsibility of the school, and of those who conduct it, is to society. The school is fundamentally an institution erected by society to do a certain specific work — to exercise a certain specific function in maintaining the life and advancing the welfare of society.
Seite 10 - ... to society. The school cannot be a preparation for social life excepting as it reproduces, within itself, the typical conditions of social life. The school at present is engaged largely upon the futile task of Sisyphus.

The child knows perfectly well that the teacher and all his fellow pupils have exactly the same facts and ideas before them that he has ; he is not giving them anything at all new. But it may be questioned whether the moral lack is not as great as the intellectual.
Seite 35 - ... a social tool. The prevailing divorce between information and character, between knowledge and social action, stalks upon the scene here. The moment mathematical study is severed from the place which it occupies with reference to use in social life, it becomes unduly abstract, even from the purely intellectual side.
Seite 38 - In so far as the school represents, in its own spirit, a genuine community life; in so far as what are called school discipline, government, order, etc., are the expressions of this inherent social spirit; in so far as the methods used are those...
