The Problem And Definitions Of Terms Used
Traditionally the American school was an institution designed to train those of unquestioned ability. The purpose was to develop these "scholars" as they were popularly known, to hold positions of leadership, usually as statesmen, ministers, or teachers. Frequently the teacher and the ministers were one and the same. The highly selective manner in which scholars were accepted in schools of these early days resulted in groups which were characterized by a high degree of homogeneity. Instruction was provided in an atmosphere that was avowedly competitive. It is obvious then, that in schools of this type, there was little need to reckon with the problem of individual differences.
