Education for Initiative and Originality

by Edward L. Thorndike - 1916

The above article by Professor Thorndike is the fifth of a series of addresses given before the staff of Teachers College with the aim of studying the basic principles which must underlie a system of education suited to the needs of a democratic society such as ours.

"Organization in American Education" by Professor John Dewey, March, 1916. "Politics and Education" by Professor Charles A. Beard, May, 1916.
