Formatted Abstract/Summary


As a slight contribution to the difficult task of post-war reconstruction, this monograph is written in the sincere hope that, in that task, education may be able to play its proper part. The criticisms and proposals contained herein are offered because, in common with many educationists throughout the world, I feel that education in its present form has failed in its duty to humanity. Nothing but this can be held responsible for the catastrophes that have disrupted society during the last twenty-five years. In the following review I have presented criticisms and suggestions which may be applied, not merely to the educational system of Australia, but more generally to those of most countries of the world.

To His Excellency Sir Leslie Wilson, Governor of this State of Queensland, I wish to express my deep gratitude for his encouraging interest, and for his kindness in writing a foreword to this monograph.
