Page 8 - Many of these stupid tyrants exercise their cruelty without any manner of distinction of the capacities of children, or the intention of parents in their behalf. There are many excellent tempers which are worthy to be nourished and cultivated with all possible diligence and care, that were never designed to be acquainted with Aristotle, Tully, or Virgil; and there are as many who have capacities for understanding every word those great persons have writ, and yet were not born to have any relish of...
Page 15 - The conductors of the JOURNAL will make it their constant endeavor to aid in diffusing enlarged and liberal views of education. Nothing, it seems to us, has had more influence in retarding the progress of improvement in the science of instruction, than narrow and partial views of what education should be expected to produce. Intellectual attainments have been too exclusively the object of attention. It is too common a thing to consider a man well educated, if he has made a proper use of the common...
Page 7 - I consider the ignorance and undiscerning of the generality of schoolmasters. The boasted liberty we talk of is but a mean reward for the long servitude, the many heart-aches and terrors, to which our childhood is exposed in going through a grammar-school.

There are many excellent tempers which are worthy to be...
Page 10 - It seems strange that almost every art, science and profession has its peculiar vehicle of information, while the science of education is without its advocate. Law, Medicine, and Divinity, Commerce, Agriculture, and even the fashions and follies of the age, have their ' Journals," while the art of improving the human mind, the source whence all others derive their consequence, is abandoned to chance or neglect.
Page 55 - It is the best and only general authority in respect to the progress of American education during the past century. It includes statistical data, personal reminiscences, historical sketches, educational biographies, descriptions of institutions, plans of buildings, reports, speeches, and legislative documents.
Page 55 - The comprehensiveness of this work, and its persistent publication under many adverse circumstances, at great expense by private and almost unsupported exertions, entitle the editor to the grateful recognition of all investigators of our systems of EDUCATIONAL PERIODICALS IN NINETEENTH CENTURY.
Page 28 - ... apportionments of school funds made by the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education, together with a monthly report of the State Normal School. The subscription price paid for each annual subscription of twelve monthly copies shall not exceed one dollar and fifty cents ; and the State Board of Education shall have power to reduce the rate whenever said journal can be creditably sustained at a lower rate. At the beginning of each school year the Superintendent of Public...
Page 37 - Mr. Henkle offered the following resolutions, which, after considerable discussion, were adopted : Resolved, That this Association will publish an Educational Journal, similar in size and typographical execution to the Ohio Journal of Education ; that this Journal be conducted by nine editors appointed by the Association, one of whom shall be styled the Resident Editor ; and that the Journal shall be furnished to subscribers at one dollar per annum. Resolved, That the Executive Committee be authorized...
Page 22 - Our reasons for this opinion are, that it Is conducted in an earnest, helpful spirit; that it makes no concessions to the educational demagogues and mountebanks; that it continually sets the mastery of principles above the application of mere devices ; and that it never for a moment loses sight of the philosophical and psychological foundations on which all sound educational theory and practice must rest Its ideals are of the highest and its methods beyond criticism.
