  3. 3. "Students today depend upon paper too much. They don’t know how to write on slate without getting chalk dust all over themselves. They can’t clean a slate properly. What will they do when they run out of paper?" -Principal’s Association, 1815http://www.flickr.com/photos/drinksmachine/438898809/

  5. 5. "Students today depend upon store bought ink. They don’t know how to make their own. When they run out they will be unable to write words or ciphers until their next trip to the settlement. This is a sad commentary on modern education. -The Rural Teacher, 1929http://www.flickr.com/photos/meganslewis/8128123389/
  6. 6. "Students today depend upon these expensive fountain pins. They can no longer write with a straight pen and nib (not to mention sharpening their own quills). We parents must not allow them to wallow in such luxury to the detriment of learning how to cope in the real business world, which is not so extravagant.“ -PTA Gazette, 1941http://www.flickr.com/photos/dailylifeofmojo/3136118632/
  7. 7. "Ball point pens will be the ruin of education in ourcountry. Students use these devices and then throw themaway. The virtues of thrift and frugality are beingdiscarded. Business and banks will never allow suchexpensive luxuries." -The Federal Teacher, 1950 http://www.flickr.com/photos/meganslewis/8127901790/
  8. 8. "Students today depend too much on hand-held calculators." -Anonymous, 1985http://www.flickr.com/photos/meganslewis/8127902302 /
