Excerpt from Public Secondary EducationIn presenting this work to the public few explanations are necessary. The aim and purpose of the undertaking seemingly are clearly indicated in the title, and the justification for the production rests in the faithfulness with which these have been followed.Few will deny, I think, that the field of secondary education in America is to-day not only one of the most interesting fields of study in education, but that it is a most important realm of investigation and research. The high schools of America are largely the foundation upon which the colleges and universities stand, and they are at the same time the culmination and the stimulating ideal toward which much of the work of the elementary schools, is directed. They occupy a most important place in our system of education. They serve as agencies of culture for culture's sake, and simultaneously constitute preparatory institutions. Their character is therefore unique. In almost no other country in the world do schools of secondary education combine so many functions under a single type of institution. They are worthy of extensive study.The purpose of any historical study is, as I conceive it, to make intelligible the contemporary institutional and social life of the present. Social conditions of today are as they are because social conditions of yesterday were as they were yesterday. No period is sufficient unto itself. No era stands alone. What was done one hundred years ago affects in some measure the conditions now. Not a jot or a tittle that is significant in to-day's civilization will be wholly unrelated to life interests one hundred years hence.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
