Educating and Passing Knowledge: The Role of Private Tutors in the Formation of Polish Youth of Noble Origins in the Sixteenth to Eighteenth Centuries
Kamecka, Malgorzata
Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, v43 n4 p509-523 Aug 2007
The aim of this paper is to comment, first of all, on the principles of the educational model suggested to young noble Poles. It emphasises the importance that was attached to education during the period analysed and describes the most significant changes that were taking place in pedagogical methods. Then, the role of private tutors in the realisation of the educational programme is analysed. The author discusses their professional competences and the duties imposed on them. Finally, the place occupied by private tutors is compared with that of other servants employed in noble families in Old Poland. (Contains 49 footnotes.)
