CRITICIZES REVIVALISTS':
'Prof. Filter Hits 'Three R' Educational Proce*s

I 'EL lIfl

By DIANE LABAKAS
Democracy has affected educa-
tion from the very beginning, Prof.
Louis Filler of Antioch College
said yesterday..
Discussing "Main Currents in
Progressive American Education"
in Aud. C, Angell Hall Prof. Filler
pointed to the free schools of the
Puritans, status given to women
and the American Revolution as
democratic events that helped de-
velop education.
He criticized a revivalist demand
for the Three R's which he said
"will do no more than provide the
newest short answer to the prob-
lem of American civilization."
Traditional Discipline
Prof. Filler noted the traditional
disciplines of history, literature,
philosophy, and religion.
"The worst about these disci-
plines was that they were essen-
tially false and capable of teach-
ing nothing but an ignorant and
stubborn self-esteem," he declared.
"Such education can prepare us

for nothing but furthertragedy."
Commenting on the effects of
the second half of the twentieth
century, Prof. Filler said it ended
the economic crisis and created an
unprecedented demand for practi-
cal skills and instruction.
Never were the basic disciplines
so firmly disciplined than during
and after World War II, Prof.
Filler asserted.
Atomic Warfare
He noted that with the shadow
of atomic warfare overhead, it
was difficult to begin a restudy of
American circumstances because
of the continued atomization of
American purposes and relations.
Group dynamics, efficiency ex-
perts, and the inter-disciplinary
approach to study and research
was adopted' to combat these con-
ditions, Prof. Filler said.
"But we were still in a serious
plight. Americans who had taken
pride in the argument that a free
democracy has beaterf out a fet-
tered Fascism in the race for the

PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION -- Prof. Louis Filler of Antioch
College discussed the main currents in progressive education
yesterday, criticizing the demand for a return to the "Three R's"
as merely the "latest short-cut solution to our problems."

atomic bomb, were suddenly in-
formed that Russia had produced1
the hydrogen bomb and was far
ahead of us in the production of
scientists."
A panicky atmosphere gave
strength to the argument that "the
villain in the piece was progressive
education which had disarmed us
in our need," he declared.
Basic Disciplines
Prof. Filler said basic disciplines
cannot be imposed unless society
finds ways and means of forcing
assimilation and retention of
skills.
The Soviet Union has found

ways and means of doing so for a
forceful percentage of her popu-
lation, Prof. Filler declared. He
suggested that the United States
study the Soviet Union's alleged
success in scientific rather than
sentimental terms.
"But even this will not give us
insight into our own problem. We
are not Russia, and only a futile
few of us would wish us to be,"
he concluded.
Prof. Filler's talk was conducted
under the auspices of the Univer-
sity School of Education and His-
tory Department.
