Image of the Week #23: Experiments in Education

The Wellesley News (02-19-1920)

What Is It

An article from the Wellesley News, the student newspaper of Wellesley College, from the late 1910s. 

Why I Find It Interesting

A curious piece in a student newspaper at a women's college.  The first half of the critique of education being conducted by unmarried women implies that it is a bad thing since they average three years and also that this is an intentional mission of education in the United States.  The second made me laugh because yet again, it's an instance of something we hear now, 100 years later about how God is being taken out of schools.  Apparently, we're still waiting for the educational apocalypse.
