9: 1921-22The curriculum is always in the melting pot. Nor is the reason far to seek. Knowledge grows from more to more, conditions change from age to age. Education, being the practical answer to the necessities of the time, must respond to changing conditions, and must at each period select the forms of knowledge best suited for its purposes.

The upheaval of war and the birth of a new world have in our days rendered the processes of revision and adaptation more than ever necessary. Thus it is that successive Prime Ministers have seen right to appoint special Committees to deal with the four great departments of study - Natural Science, Modern Languages, Classics, English - and have entrusted to them the task of examining their respective claims to a place in the national system of education.

We have before us the findings of the Classical Committee, to which its authors have given the title The Classics in Education. The reports on Natural Science and Modern Languages appeared a year or two ago.The Committee, whose chairman was the Marquess of Crewe, was instructed to enquire into the position which the Classics should hold, and to advise as to the means of maintaining and improving their proper study. It would hardly have claimed to be a judicial body.

Like the other committees, it was briefed for its own client. If, in the domain of linguistic study, the Modern Languages Committee may be regarded as counsel for the prosecution, the tone of much of the Classical Report is that of counsel for the defence. It was its business to make the strongest case it could. The nation must in the end decide or compromise among the rival claimants.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
