DEATHS Dr. Fitzpatrick eontinued, "'lhat it is just as possible to waste money on education, textbooks, teachers. equipment, buildings, as on any- thing else Snch expenditures may be an educational disservice as well as an educational service.

Money for Education Dr. Fitzpatrick also said that he- cause of the false premise that edu- cation is good the American people cling to "'another mistaken notion that all money spent on education (public or private) is well spent." "The fact is that education, if it may be. a good, may also be an evil," he declared. "It may be a disservice to individuals as well as a service We must realize, here in New York particularly, in your waste of human life. A philosophy of education must i)e at the basis of educational expenditure." American System Analyzing the inadequacies of modern education, Dr. Fitzpatrick said "'on whim, on a pseudo science of tests on an animal and behavior- istic psychology, on a changing so- cial order, on a political compro- mise of conflicting sects, on ma- terialism and secularism, on neglect of our cultural tradition we have atteutpted to build a system of edu- cation." Dr. Fitzpatrick criticized much of modern educational technique for laying too much emphasis on the accumulation of mere information and not enough stress on the train. ing of the thinking faculties add the will and the inculcation of wisdom as the highest knowledge.
