When Los Angeles Unified students return to campuses a month from now, staff and students, with some exceptions, will be expected to wear a mask indoors, as they did when schools reopened in the spring. But those who are fully vaccinated will no longer have to undergo regular COVID-19 testing, a major departure from district protocols in the spring when all staff and students on campus were to be tested weekly.

B.F. Skinner Demonstrates His “Teaching Machine,” the 1950s Automated Learning Device

The name B.F. Skinner often provokes darkly humorous references to such bizarre ideas as “Skinner boxes,” which put babies in cage-like cribs, and put the cribs in windows as if they were air-conditioners, leaving the poor infants to raise themselves. Skinner was hardly alone in conducting experiments that flouted, if not flagrantly ignored, the ethical concerns now central to experimentation on humans. The code of conduct on torture and abuse that ostensibly governs members of the...
