Political Theory and Education

by Isaac L. Kandel 1916

The intimate connection between education and politics is a commonplace so trite to the student of educational history that another contribution to the subject may appear to require some apology. The present war, however, seems to call for an intellectual stocktaking in every field of human endeavor and not least in that of education. From the point of view of education the war has brought national characteristics so well into the forefront that it may be well to seize the opportunity to consider how far these qualities are the product of the respective educational systems, or, on the other hand, how far those systems are conditioned by and in turn reflect other factors. Attention is confined here to England and Prussia partly because they occupy the centre of the stage, but mainly because they represent two extremes in politics and education. A similar analysis could, of course, be made for any other country.
