Sound familiar?

This one is for all my education nerd-buddies:

"There is a rowing tendency in the schools to make success in the examinations the supreme end of schooling. I deplore the trend of school competition, which is beginning to flow with such portentous rapidity, widening into a flood  which carries true education in ruin before it."
- Head Master of the All saints School 1899 (quoted in Barcan 1980, p.164)

It seems the whole 'My School' controversy isn't so new.
