International Education Series




Edited by W. T. HARRIS, A. M., LL. D., United States Commissioner of Education.

THE International Education Series was projected for the purpose of bringing together in orderly arrangement the best writings, new and old, upon educational subjects, and presenting a complete course of reading and training for teachers generally. Four departments are presented, covering the entire field of practical, theoretical, and historical education.

I.-History of Education. (A) Original systems as expounded by their founders. (B) Critical histories which set forth the customs of the past and point out their advantages and defects, explaining the grounds of their adoption, and also of their final disuse.

II.-Educational Criticism. (A) The noteworthy arraignments which educational reformers have put forth against existing systems: these compose the classics of pedagogy. (B) The critical histories above mentioned.

III.-Systematic Treatises on the Theory of Education. (A) Works written from the historical standpoint; these, for the most part, show a tendency to justify the traditional course of study and to defend the prevailing methods of instruction. (B) Works written from critical standpoints, and to a greater or less degree revolutionary in their tendency.

IV. The Art of Education. (A) Works on instruction and discipline, and the practical details of the schoolroom. on the organization and supervision of schools.

(B) Works

Practical insight into the educational methods in vogue can not be attained without a knowledge of the process by which they have come to be established. For this reason special prominence is given to the bistory of the systems that have prevailed.

Since history is incompetent to furnish the ideal of the future, works of educational criticism have a prominent place. Criticism is the purifying process by which ideals are rendered clear and potent, so that progress becomes possible.

History and criticism combined make possible a theory of the whole. For, with an ideal toward which the entire movement tends, and an account of the phases that have appeared in time, the connected development of the whole can be shown, and all united into one system.

Lastly, after the science comes the practice, the art of education. This is treated in special works devoted to the devices and technical details useful in the schoolroom.

It is believed that the teacher does not need authority so much as insight in matters of education. When he understands the theory of education and the history of its growth, and has matured his own point of view by careful study of the critical literature of education, then he is competent to select or invent such practical devices as are best adapted to his own wants.
