About this Item

Sole American edition of Gabriel Bouquier's report on reforming public education in France. The chief aims are to release secondary and higher education from the "hide-bound" ways that the Revolutionary government perceived in the ancient regime and to establish a system for training youths who will be immediately useful to France in commerce, exploration, mining, the military, and other nonacademic pursuits. One of the reforms that it is thought will help ensure good instruction is the selection of teachers in public forums by committees of 40 citizens, each drawn from a cross-section of citizens. Committee votes are to be open to the public and a clear majority is to be necessary for appointment. 8vo (21.5 cm, 8.5"). 12 pp. Evans 27001. Removed from a nonce volume, now in modern wrappers. Six-digit number stamped on title-page. A little dusty. Bookseller Inventory # 4700
