Excerpt from Problems in Modern Education Addresses and Essays
This volume is composed of some of the essays and addresses which, in spite of the many exact ing duties of a busy professional life, I have found time to prepare. All but four of the pa pers here brought together were delivered before Texas audiences, two of the exceptions being written for national educational societies, the third for the Association of Southern Colleges and Preparatory Schools, and the fourth for the Southern Educational Association.
The essays and addresses were, in each in stance, born of a desire to meet the demands of a practical situation; and were, therefore, con cerned, not so much with the presentation of ab stract ideals, as with the application of well recognized educational principles to the solution of school problems that abound in our day. If there be a unifying principle in the several dis eussions, it is that of concrete idealism, which is the controlling, characteristic attribute of human evolution, and which insists upon the wisdom and necessity of reckoning with environment in order to obtain desirable results.
