Two years ago from when? Longer ago than that I remember (it being
translated that) Vasili Vasilovitch said that is was hard to find
educational activity in schools in his country or in ours. Not never.
I think I saw it in Schola 91 in Moscow not too long after that longer
ago talk.

        About two years ago, on a cool Southern California day, Vasili
Davydov addressed a group of social scientists at the University of
California, San Diego. He began his talk with a paradox. He had come, he
said, to tell us about educational activity. He promised to exhibit
principles that promote educational activity, and applied programs
deriving from those principles. Then he laughed. "But you'll never see
educational activity in the school," he said, and laughed again.
