Excerpt from Topical Studies and Questions in History of Education: With Brief Outlines of General History
In the professional training of teachers the history of education has a recognized value. Aside from the fact that it is a direct reflection of the political and social or religious life of the people, its special value to the teacher is twofold: - (1) in the inspiration and professional enthusiasm resulting from a thorough study of the development of education from its first rude beginnings to the present time; and (2) in the lessons which it teaches by disclosing the results of various systems and methods of education among different peoples and in different ages.
But, incorrectly pursued, the study may fail entirely to produce these two results. The student or teacher who crams into his mind a mass of facts, names, and dates, simply for the sake of passing an examination, defeats entirely the purpose of those authorities who have made this study a professional requirement; such student has memorized a mass of information of less positive value as such than would be the names of all the post-offices in the State in which he lives.
In her work as instructor of training classes in the State of New York, the author has often found it difficult to accomplish the best results in History of Education.
