No. 1

Education as an Instrumentality of the State

PROFESSOR H. A. HOLLISTER, UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA, ILL.

SAHE emphasis upon individualism of various types

has of late led the public mind away from that aspect of public education which the above title suggests. We hear constantly such expressions as “giving individuals a fair chance" through education, and “ developing the self” as the great end and aim of the school. We need still to keep

before us the fact that schools maintained by the state are in the interests of the state.

Citizen A may find some just ground for complaint when taxes are increased in order to give individual young men and women a better chance; but when it is remembered that such increase of taxation is first of all, and chiefly, in the interest of the safety and perpetuity of free institutions, his objections are checked even before they are expressed.

The purpose of the present writing is to undertake to restate and re-emphasize the interest of the state in maintaining at public expense a complete system of education.

The state as here considered is composed of a body of free, self-governing citizens. The idea of democracy, like all great notions connected with the evolution of the race, is one which has undergone and is still undergoing constant modification and enlargement.
