Seite 245 - To form habits of social usefulness and serviceableness apart from any direct social need and motive, and apart from any existing social situation, is, to the letter, teaching the child to swim by going through motions outside of the water. The most indispensable condition is left out of account, and the results are correspondingly futile.
Seite 245 - ... to be a fable made expressly for the purpose of typifying the prevailing status of the school, as judged from the standpoint of its ethical relationship to society. The school cannot be a preparation for social life excepting as it reproduces, within itself, the typical conditions of social life. The school at present is engaged largely upon the futile task of Sisyphus. It is...
Seite 77 - ... the deathrate is lower in the early teens than at any other age. It is the time when there is the most rapid development of the heart and all the feelings and emotions. Fear, anger, love, pity, jealousy, emulation, ambition, and sympathy are either now born or springing into their most intense life. Now young people are interested in adults, and one of their strong passions is to be treated as if they were mature. They desire to know, do, and be all that becomes a man or woman. Childhood is ending,...
Seite 9 - Education has spread with such extraordinary rapidity since the 'nineties, I am convinced that teachers are ready for such a systematic presentment of our professional work as is attempted in these chapters. I have tried to kill two birds with one stone.

The brain has practically finished for life its growth in weight and size ; and all work and strain must be reduced. Some important corner in its time of development, not yet fully understood, is turned. III. At eight or nine there begins a new period, which, for nearly four years, to the dawn of puberty, constitutes a unique stage of life, marked off by many important differences from the period which...

Seite 89 - Guinevere, according to the mediaeval legends, suffered abduction from time to time as a matter of course, and equally as a matter of course was rescued by Lancelot. A modern reader can see how the stories rose around "the much-abducted queen." Mediaeval singers found in "King Arthur and his Court...
Seite 76 - And I can manage the original. At five years old — how ill had fared its leaves ! Now, growing double o'er the Stagirite, At least I soil no page with bread and milk, Nor crumple, dogs-ear and deface — boys
Seite 108 - State is simply incompetent to control. It acts through politicians and officials who, whatever may be their personal character, are bound by official attitudes. The very spirit of freedom which has erected democratic government demands that families shall be free to practise old faiths and to cherish these through the schooling which the child receives.
