New Studies in Education: Democracy and Mission Education in Korea


by James Earnest Fisher 1929

AT the present time the aims, methods, and general attitudes obtaining in the educational work of Christian missions in non-Christian lands are being challenged by the liberal and progressive element among the people of these lands, on the grounds that they violate certain principles of fairness in human dealings. With the growth of nationalistic feeling, accompanied as it is by a desire to conserve native cultural values, there has been a growing manifestation of resentment toward those mission enterprises which have tended to belittle or destroy the cultural attainments of non-Christian peoples. This resentment has taken more definite form and attracted the attention of the Western world, as secular, scientific, and literary education, fostered by governmental agencies, has spread abroad Western liberal ideals in these non-Christian lands. Democracy and Mission Education in Korea is a critical study of some phases of mission education in Korea for the purpose of: (a) pointing out places in which this educational activity has failed to measure up to the most democratic standards of education, and (b) suggesting ways in which it may be reconstructed more in harmony with these standards.
