Traditional Values and the Shaping of American Education


by Merle Borrowman — 1961

Discussion of educational values is usually derived from the commitments of formal religion, the folklore of democracy and capitalism, widely accepted ethical canons, and such specific educational traditions as humanism, scholasticism, and pragmatism. These are important reservoirs of moral capital. To explore their depths and appraise their content is important. Nevertheless, such appraisal and exploration, if carried on with traditional terminology, tends to degenerate into a battle of quickly recognized cliches around which patrons and educators rally. When time-honored guidons fly, it is not difficult to anticipate which armies will take the field.
