Effects of Humanism on Education and Educational Administration. Educational Research Report.
Lall, Bernard M.; Nicholas, Anthony
This report summarizes the historical development of humanism from Petrarch and Boccaccio in the Renaissance to the present. The freedom of thought, self-expression, and creative activity that characterized the humanistic schools are considered to be the fundamental bases of education today. A brief description is given of brutalization and inhumaneness in education, typified at its worst by the English public schools of the 17th and 18th centuries. The concluding section of the work discusses the humanizing aspects of education as a greater personal concern for the student as an individual in his own right. To humanize educational administration, according to the authors, is to create a permissive atmosphere within which an individual can feel free to make his own unique contribution. (MLF)
