 “…Teach­ing thus dif­fers from train­ing and con­di­tion­ing,
which are con­cerned with per­for­mance
rather than belief and ratio­nal action.…

To be eth­i­cal, con­di­tion­ing must have stu­dent
coop­er­a­tion in and aware­ness of its use
to change behav­ior.” N.L.Gage and David C. Berlin­er, Edu­ca­tion­al Psy­chol­o­gy, Rand McNal­ly Col­lege Pub­lish­ing Co., Chica­go, 1975, 129–131
