2231. DISCIPLINE, Education and.—[continued].

The rock which I most
dread is the discipline of the institution [the
University of Virginia], and it is that on
which most of our public schools labor. The
insubordination of our youth is now the
greatest obstacle to their education. We May
lessen the difficulty, perhaps, by avoiding too
much government, by requiring no useless observances,
none which shall merely multiply
occasion for dissatisfaction, disobedience and
revolt by referring to the more discreet of
themselves the minor discipline, the grayer to
the civil magistrates, as in Edinburgh. [145]
To George Ticknor. Washington ed. vii, 301.
(M. 1823)


The introduction of the “honor system”, in collegiate
