In the Nature of Educational Reform

Mr. Sloane did not want to perpetuate the disorders which stemmed from the alphabetical arrangement. Not only did he reverse the seating in his other classes, but he began to badger the school’s administration for a mandate to bring about such changes throughout the building. He called it a compensatory factor to neutralize the catastrophic effects of the traditional policy. Soon, Mr. Sloane earned the appellation of “ Mr. Backwards”

Mr. Sloane tidak ingin mengabadikan gangguan yang berasal dari pengaturan alfabet. Tidak hanya dia membalikkan tempat duduk di kelas-kelasnya yang lain, tetapi dia mulai mendesak administrasi sekolah untuk mandat untuk membawa perubahan semacam itu di seluruh gedung. Dia menyebutnya sebagai faktor kompensasi untuk menetralisir dampak bencana dari kebijakan tradisional. Segera, Mr. Sloane mendapat sebutan “Mr. Backwards”
