This collection of Clark's writings -- including the transcript of his appearance before Congress to oppose the formation of the Dept of Education in 1926 -- is an excellent treatment of what education is really all about. His support for learning ones "facts" as a pre-requisite to "original" thought is a striking rebuke to those wedded to a fanciful notion that school's are to foster an atmosphere in which the student is left to his own thoughts. First let him learn what has come before. Again, the emphasis on teachers learning their subject rather than educational methods stands against the current trend, as does his insistence that in education we do not seek to turn out children like automobiles (all alike in their thinking), but rather Clark exalts individuality in education and thus opposes a state-run educational system intended to produce uniformity. Finally, Clark cannot help tying together his overarching philosophy that all we do must ! be to the Glory of God, not the exaltation of man, and in this context he sets a framework upon which true wisdom (not mere learning) can be constructed.
