MoreExcerpt from The Place of the Mother Tongue in National EducationThe following pages contain an elaboration of some remarks which I designed to lay before the Meeting of the British Association in York at the beginning of last month.Various circumstances prevented me from carrying out my purpose, and I am therefore putting forth my views in their present form, in the hope that they may form a slight contribution to a subject which is occupying some attention at the present moment, and deserves to occupy more.
I hope that even if prejudiced critic1sm be wholly hostile, both to the subject itself and the manner in which it is here dealt with, the suggestions herein contained may yet, at least, serve as the nucleus of a concrete discussion, from which some progress may result. The conscientious objector may in time modify his views- the serious and friendly critic will help on the cause.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
