Education Abroad and in England1

IN education, as in other matters, each nation must solve its own problems for itself. Every system of education should be the expression of national characteristics and adapted to national idiosyncrasies. Still, lessons which we can ill afford to neglect may be learnt from the study of developments in other countries, and in some respects it is much easier to ascertain what is being done abroad than at home. Thanks to the admirable series of special reports inaugurated by Prof. Sadler, we can make ourselves more or less familiar with the details of foreign education. With regard to England, we are not so fortunately situated; the Board of Education gives little or no information as to new and successful experiments, and its reports have mainly a statistical value. This lack of information as to the progress within recent years renders a comparison between English and foreign systems difficult and misleading.
