Television in the Classroom

Television has entered the classroom because it is a collective mechanism and, as such, is much superior to textbooks; similarly, slides, audio tapes, group games, and so on meet the need to collectivize, which is a central purpose of mass schooling.  This is the famous “socialization” that schools do so well.
