Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from An Address on the Remedies for Certain Defects in American Education: Delivered Before Lyceums or Institutes for Education at Fortsmouth and Exeter, N. H. Baltimore and Annapolis, Mr. And Washington, D. C On this occasion a few suggestions will be made with a view to aid in correcting some defects which exist among us in education. By education I mean the whole preparation for the duties and trials of life. Instruction in the broadest Sense - physical and moral no less than intellectual, is intended to be embraced. Nor should it be confined to youth, but be viewed as extending both its sphere and influence from the cradle to the grave. In order to cure defects it is desirable, in the outset, to understand thoroughly their origin and character. Ours are believed to spring chiefly from certain peculiarities in society and government in this country, some of which are very prominent. One of them is the more equal division of power and property among all. That generally produces a diffusion of common acquirements wider, or to a larger portion of the whole community. But, at the same time, it opens a door to greater imperfections in those acquirements, as well as in higher attainments. Another of these peculiarities is the increased freedom from restraint, almost inseparable from institutions so popular in form as ours. It is being left more to self-government; and the natural consequences of it are a discipline less strict and stronger self-confidence, bordering even on rashness at times, in business as well as all kinds of public action. Without detaining you at this time by a specification of further peculiarities, and without denying, but rather rejoicing that some advantages accompany these, such as their tendency to elevate, in the social circle, as well as in politics, the great mass of society-to bend legislation throughout to the interests of all, rather than of particular classes or eminent individuals - to govern quite as much by public opinion as by magistrates, and to have experiments made in almost every thing, where improvement is possible; yet it must be obvious that defects also, like those, before alluded to as the usual consequences of our peculiarities, are apt to follow from their prevalence. These defects, even if mortifying; to self-love, it is more manly to confess and more American to cure, if practicable, than to attempt concealment and evasion, or persist wantonly in error. Honesty and boldness to probe and expose them are the first steps. Then their correction, though difficult from the intimate ties between them and our political institutions is, undoubtedly, to some extent feasible, and by all those who love and respect those institutions, will be attempted in some mode not dangerous to their structure, nor hostile to the true spirit which pervades them. In my opinion this can be done by devoting greater attention to the means as well as character of education. Hence it is the duty of all, and we are to-night assembled here (I hope not in vain, ) to contribute something to the wide efforts now making around us for the accomplishment of so laudable an object. Much can be effected, by concentrating the energies of all to three prominent points. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at.
