Educational Legislation and Administration of the Colonial Governments (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Educational Legislation and Administration of the Colonial Governments IN spite of the emphasis that in recent years has fallen upon the significance of educational history, the history of American education is as yet unwritten. On closer thought, however, this delay is not at all surprising. The very realization of the weight of educational theory and practice as factors in social evolution must occasion hesitation in the undertaking of any educational history. Moreover, since a people's educational system is so intricately woven into its whole social system and is so entirely the expression and outcome of the whole social life, it would seem as if the historian of our national education were driven to make great requisitions upon the work of our national historians. Is it impertinent, at this point, to suggest that from the sociological point of view at any rate, and that is the necessary point of view of educational thought, the story of American civilization, as well as that of its educational phase, remains untold?
