Summary
""Perhaps the large majority of our teachers," says Harry Grove Wheat in Foundations of School Learning, "keep trying to the best of their knowledge and ability to promote the learning of the organized subjects of the school ... Yet all too many teachers and theorists are exerting their influence, no doubt with good intentions, to bring the learning of the school subjects into disrepute. Of such learning, they speak in derisive terms. It is 'traditional'; it is 'disciplinary'; it is 'formal.' Indeed, they speak truly, though without true meanings. The learning of the American heritage is all they say: traditional, for it offers to children and youth the distilled lessons of racial experience; disciplinary, for it provides training in effective modes of thinking; formal, for it emphasizes the ordered sequences of causes and results. The critics of the learning of the school subjects say also that it is 'undemocratic' In this, they make their greatest error ... "Our forebears had faith in education ... In our own day, the apostles of doubt are in the ranks of those who have assumed the responsibility of transmitting civilization to the young. It is a strange and startling anomaly that professional educationalists repeat the argument of the enemies of free public education of a century and a half ago - namely, the argument that large numbers cannot profit from the education of the American heritage ... "The reason is not far to seek. The educationalists have lost their faith in the capabilities of American children and youth ... They do not recall that 'the race is not always to the swift or the battle to the strong'; and that each with all must assume the role of the sovereign citizen, whatever his preparation to meet the responsibilities of citizenship"--Jacket.
