A Theory of Classical Education, III: The Classics in the Sixties.
Didaskalos, v1 n3 p3-19 1965
Noting the sharp decline in Latin studies in England, the author reviews the rationale and educational objectives which serve as the foundation for existing programs. Commentary is made on the roles of science, history, literature, and philosophy in the curriculum. The function of classical studies is seen to be related largely to the development of the mental faculties and to serve as the basis for further study in the arts. Reforms are suggested at all levels of instruction and particularly for "O-Level" examinations. (RL)
