|In 1929, Louis Benezet tried an experiment, "abandoning all formal instruction in arithmetic below the seventh grade and concentrating on teaching the children to read, to reason, and to recite." The experiment was successful; this site includes Benezet's original article in html and PDF formats, and a small collection of related articles and more modern research.|
