Course in English in the Horace Mann School: Introduction

by Franklin T. Baker 1900

The courses in English in the Horace Mann School as they now stand are the result of several years of cooperative planning on the part of the teachers and the supervisor of English. To the former belongs in large degree the credit not only of successful conduct of the work, but of valuable and suggestive contributions to the general plan. The courses make no pretence of perfection or finality, and are built upon no doctrinaire principle. The present writer is ready to avow his respect for the wisdom of the generations, and his distrust of much of the so-called "new" in education. Composed of materials and processes used with more or less success in many schools, these courses cannot be called original in any great degree. Many of the principles, indeed, have had here and elsewhere that amount of satisfactory testing which constitutes establishment. Whatever of originality they may have lies in the new combinations of common materials, and, it may be, in some things in the spirit and point of view which control the organization of the courses as a whole. They are submitted for such discussion and criticism as their merits and faults may provoke.
