The Preachers of Culture.
Mathieson, Margaret
This book examines the ideology of English instruction in British schools, provides explanations for its growth, and discusses the implications of educationists' persistent demands for teachers with outstanding personal qualities. Divided into three parts, the contents of this book consider the changing role of English in the curriculum, discussing the relationship between redefinitions of English and developments in educational theory and wider society. Also discussed is how the emergence of English as an important school subject has coincided with educational expansion, urban development, and technological change. The growth of English is also examined in relation to the decline of the classical curriculum in universities, public schools, and grammar schools, and the decline of religion as a character-building force.
