Out In Left Field: Might sitting in rows and spitting out facts also be a prerequisite for learning?

In an earlier post, I talked about how certain “education reformists” malign traditional education as being

based on a 19th century Prussian model, or an early 20th century factory model, designed to foster obedience to political, military, or capitalist authority.

These people, I  noted, are conflating political, military, and workplace authorities with educational authorities, and obedience to political, military, and workplace authorities with obedience to educational authorities.
