  1. I think Horace Mann is America's education system. Many known schools drill and reward with merit bias or unbiased. While the traditional school system has been deteriorating for decades regardless of funding provided. Progressive would show the economic demands and teach children based on that theory. With things like education being outdated, progressivism is in approach, but the Horace Mann system is still a strong tool in America education approach. Drill, drill, discipline, drill and one size fits all in style of learning. Take tests, pass your grades and you are taught to believe those scores will determine your failures or success in life. Truth is knowledge is a portion of success while character and other important elements like individualism and wit is another.
