PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR

Hände hoch!

Conductive Education, as reported and construed by Gillian Bridges, a British social worker (in London, I recall) whose book included a special study of 'families and conductive education  a case study of a private resource' 
...comes over as a cross between revivalism as they chant instructions, and Hitler's [sic] Youth as the conductors deliver orders.
This is how many would-be progressive people in British child care and education came to view Conductive Education. I do not know whether or not many still do.
