The Extracurriculum and General Education

by E. G. Williamson - 1952

In the second chapter of this volume, Taylor contends that "the individual is educated by the way he spends his time and the situations into which he is put, or into which he accidentally falls."

We are, therefore, justified in appraising the contributions to education of out-of-class experiences as well as those that take place within the formal classroom. We believe that the unity of education, viewed as personal development, takes place within the individual, but its nature or content differs in a variety of different social contexts.
