About this title


Typeset in elegant Garamond! NOT a blurry copy! This large print edition of a classic work brings to life an excellent summary of Chinese education through 1913. The following pages contain a general survey of the educational development of China up to the present time. This is, as far as the writer's knowledge goes, a pioneer work and, as such, contains probably many errors. He has tried, however, to be accurate through­out in the selection of material and the translation of original sources. The occidental students of educational history generally have a hazy and in­adequate idea of what the term “Chinese education" really connotes. Some speak of the examination system, which forms but a link in the whole chain of the educational development of China, as though it constituted the whole history of Chinese education. While it is true that old Chinese education since the founding of the Appointment System had been of a humanistic type, it does not follow, as Professor Monroe dogmat­ically asserts, that Chinese literature is so inferior to the occidental classical literature that "when the general results upon intellectual life and social development are considered, there is little basis for comparison."
