Abstract:

The rôle which racial instincts play in the emotions, intellect, and will of children has been the subject of many investigations in recent years by those interested in the psychology of childhood. These studies, however, have had but slight effect upon the methods of the schools. Teachers have followed the traditional methods of education which were adopted before the knowledge which we now have available. The ideas and practice of the old English grammar-schools were brought to this country by those deeply imbued with belief in the natural depravity of children, and our educational methods have never recovered from the affliction. This book is an attempt to show the possible application of the results of recent psychological investigations to the education of children.--Preface.
