A Theory of Classical Education.
Bolgar, R. R.
Didaskalos, v1 n1 p5-26 1963
The debate on the merits of classical education is reviewed through an examination of views of Henry Sidgwick in his "Essays on a Liberal Education" (1867). Running commentary focuses on two major concepts: (1) considerable change in teaching methodology is necessary if Latin is to survive, and (2) a majority of teachers in classical studies need to become convinced of the necessity and relevance of educational change. The author comments extensively on the benefits which accrue directly and indirectly to the student of Latin. (RL)
