Transforming Teachers - Humanism

  • Book summary: A Christian philosophy of education

    A summary of Gordon Clark's book, A Christian Philosophy of Educationby Dr. C. Matthew McMahon on A Puritan's Mind

    Those who can, do; those who cannot, teach; those who cannot teach, teach Education. This kind of statement describes the American educational system in more ways than one. Education is too important to neglect it or hand it over to those who cannot or do not know how to educate children and young adults. Most American colleges have no philosophy of education at all. They may have some vague ideals or aims. But no concrete philosophy that has any value. Though American colleges do not have a philosophy of education that can be called unified, or have an elaborate world-view set for their students, instead, they cater to having a unity in opposition to Christianity.
