Excerpt from Education From a National StandpointSince the national disaster of 1870, France has struggled to rebuild itself from within. There is no more important spectacle before our eyes at the present time than this attempt at reconstruction. The cause of education all over the world has received a great impulse through the fact that French statesmen have chosen to make free schools and compulsory attendance the corner-stone of the new state. The doctrine that universal education in schools makes a people strong and free, could be regarded as visionary by partisans of the old regime; but when the statesmen of France proclaim that it was the schools of Germany that conquered at Sedan - when they proceed to organize a thorough and universal system of schools - when England reforms on a new basis her own educational system, and when Italy and Spain manifest equal energy in founding an efficient system of popular education, no room for doubt is left in the mind of the conservative as to the practical necessity of education to national prosperity. It is not the doctrinaire, but the statesman and public opinion, that assert it.The first question being settled, that of the indispensableness of schools for the people, there arises into prominence the second and more subtle question, What shall be the course of study in these people's schools?About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
