Excerpt from The English Journal of Education, 1848, Vol. 2: Specially Designed as a Medium of Correspondence Among the Heads of Training Colleges, Parochial Clergymen, and All Promoters of Sound Education, Parents, Sponsors, Schoolmasters, Pupil Teachers, Sunday-School Teachers, Etc
During the last six months the english journal or educa tion has ceased to be under the control of the gentleman who commenced and for several years ably conducted it.
It will have been observed by the reader that the Journal has undergone certain modifications since that time. These we have adopted, not without hesitation, yet in the hope that the utility of the Magazine might be extended. It is satis factory to be able to state that the sale has been gradually increasing, and that the number for January is nearly out of print.
We regard this success as an omen that the modifications to which reference has been made are not unpleasing to the great body of the subscribers.
We wish to render the periodical practically useful to elemen tary teachers, especially to that large host of youthful instructors whom the recent arrangements of Her Majesty's Government have summoned into action, and upon whose intellectual progress so much of the future fortunes of education in this country, under the Divine blessing, depends.
We Openly avow that our desire is not so much to express strong opinions on the politics of the Educational Question, as to present to the reader useful papers on method, examples of lessons, histories of remarkable educational institutions, &0. In short, we are anxious to show how plain things should be taught in a plain, and therefore philosophical, way.
