Published December 8th 2011 by Routledge – 212 pages
This volume presents a short survey of education at the beginning of the twentieth century. It considered the main educational agencies of that time, the home, the Church, the school and the university and the role to be played by each in preparing the citizens of the future. The author maintains that religion and education are intimately connected and therefore he discusses education in its broadest sense: preparation for being not just a citizen in the United Kingdom but in human existence as a whole.
