MoreExcerpt from The War and Education: Culture Versus KulturIs to that of the body politic. There is no such thing as finality in human institutions, least of all in those concerned with the growth and training of the human mind and character. In these matters constant change is of the essence of perfection. It is the glory of our own political constitution that it is not a manufactured article like a suit of clothes, to be cast aside and replaced from time to time as it is outgrown, but a living growth, which adapts itself, like the skin of an animal, to the expansion of the body it holds together and protects. We should look for the same elasticity and adaptive ness in our educational system, and should welcome, therefore, a periodic review of our scholastic activities. Such a process is just on the point of commencing. A Royal Commission will shortly be sitting to review the machinery and work of the University and its Colleges, and after the war the Schools in their turn will be subjected to a similar enquiry.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
