Studies of Qualities of Merit and Their Values


by Arthur Boyce 1915

Discussions of the "ideal teacher" are numerous in educational titerature. Every educational essayist has described that mythical creature in glowing terms. The pages of the reports of the National Education Association are full of her virtues. There is much of inspiration and suggestion in these discussions but little or nothing of scientific value, little of which a superintendent could make practical use. Each writer or speaker has described the qualities as they appeal to him, usually emphasizing one or two virtues to the exclusion of others. The great bulk of the writing on the subject of teaching merit has been of the subjective, a priori type without any basis beyond the theory and experience of the one who was writing.
