Der Naturwissenschaftliche Unterricht in England, insbesondere in Physik und Chemie

Abstract

THIS work treats of the various methods of, and provision for, teaching science, principally physics, in English schools. The author, after a preliminary visit to this country in 1897, was commissioned by the Bavarian Government to spend six months in studying the efforts made in England to introduce the study of science into schools. The variety of organisation which exists in England lends itself to educational experiments, and the preference for boarding-schools, where the efforts of the teachers are not interfered with by parental care, often eliminates a disturbing cause which might influence the results of the experiment. It is remarked, that in comparison with continental schools, the school fees are enormously high; but, without reference to the necessities of the case, the parent is often solaced and his pocket relieved by the bestowal of scholarships upon boys capable of excelling in examination.
