The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
Excerpt from The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching: Founded 1905The six institutions described in the first section of this Manual were founded in years so recent that their beginnings are today fresh in the memory of those fortunate enough to have been associated in their inception and development. To them the personality of the founder, his belief in human progress, his optimism for the future, his sincere desire to do the best with the great fortune genius had brought together, were part and parcel of these early associations.Before the memories of these days grow dim, while the founder is with us, still full of faith for the future, notwithstanding the confusion and the pain that have fallen upon the world, it seems fitting to set down in the pages of this handbook an account of these beginnings, to tell briefly the story of how these enterprises were launched, what were the visions that set them afloat on the stream of time, and to render some account of the short voyage they have made in common. The statement which follows is the story of the first twelve years of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, the fourth in time of Mr. Carnegie's spiritual children, born in 1905, and christened by an Act of Congress in the spring of 1906.For a special reason the present moment is fitting for an account of the Carnegie Foundation, told not entirely in statistics but in terms of human experience.When the Carnegie Foundation was begun neither the founder nor the Trustees conceived of the teacher's pension except in terms of a free gift to a man grown old in a life of unselfish service. While the Act of Incorporation and the Rules adopted by the Trustees reserved to them full power to change their policy and plans, this conception of the teacher's pension seemed at that time the basis of a permanent policy.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
