Excerpt from Buffalo Medical Journal, Vol. 71: August, 1915, to July, 1916 I said a moment ago that all we need in education is a scientific basis from which to proceed; but, there is something else that must be mentioned in this connection. Not only must we adjust our system to conform to the individual, but, we must, also, fit. The individual into the system. The human brain is very variable in regard to function, no two individuals of the same age are exactly alike in the exhibition of brain power. We must, therefore, find some method for determining the child's brain power so that we Shall know where to place him ill the educational scale. One fault of the present system is that from thirty to forty children are herded together in one room under one teacher. This system is unfair; unfair to the teacher and unfair to-the children. The teacher does poor work because she has too much work to do, and the chil dren, naturally, do not do their best under a teacher who can not do her best. It may be said, also, that amongst forty children, there are some who are below grade, and some who are above. Those below are injured through the endeavor to endure beyond their strength; those above are retarded through receiving less than they can assimilate. What is needed is a system that will eliminate these irregularities. In these articles I Shall offer some suggestions toward that end; but I am not deluding myself with the thought that my sug gestions are going to solve all the problems of education. No one man may accomplish that. But, one man may make a be ginning; and, if I have done that I Shall be content.
