Description

Quoted from the author's "Preface."

"THE aim of the following essay is to elucidate several points in connection with our system of education about which the most improper and injurious fallacies are current among us."

"Various circumstances have forced the question of education upon our notice at the present time. The settlement of 1870 could not aim to be a final and ideal scheme, because it had to
effect a compromise between religious sects, whose strength and fortunes were subject to variation. The two parties to that compromise may be described as the party that wanted much religious dogma taught in the schools and the party that would be content with little; a third party, that desired the total exclusion of religious dogma, was then too small to have a share in the deal."

"But the third party has been steadily growing. Clerical influence has shrunk in the most remarkable manner during the last thirty years. Rationalism has, to judge from the enormous success of its publications, attained a very considerable power. The organisation of the workers has revealed a strong feeling among the millions — as shown in the votes of
Trade Union Congresses — to sever our educational system entirely from the teaching of sects. A large number of educationists, scholars, and politicians have declared that the time
has come for the complete secularisation of our elementary schools."

"My essay has been written for those perplexed readers, of every school, who desire to have a full and clear statement of the facts before they help to commit the nation to another thirty years of compromise."
