Excerpt from A Study of the Moral and Religious Elements in American Secondary Education Up to 1800: A Dissertation Submitted to the Faculty of the Graduate School of Arts and Literature in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of PhilosophyMany assumptions have been made of the religious motives back of American educational activities, but no historical study has been made to determine the actual participation of religious bodies and of the presence of religious incentives as a dynamic of our educational advancement. The purpose of this thesis has been to find out to what extent religious motive was present in the founding of the American educational system. The field opened up so large that it was found advisable to limit the scope of the investigation to the elementary and secondary schools. The study of the universities would be a work for a separate investigation.The author wishes to express bis appreciation to Dr. Marcus W. Jernegan of the University of Chicago, under whose supervision this thesis has been made possible. Dr. Theodore Soares of the University of Chicago has been ready at all times to give advice and has reviewed the manuscript with care. At this time the author desires to thank both Dr. W. H. Kilpatrick, Teachers College, Columbia University, and Dr. Frank F.Graves, University of Pennsylvania, for helpful counsel and advice. Many avenues of fruitful research were pointed out by these men.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
