I Nnhis Number, Which Begins Our Fiftiet...
I nnHIS number , which begins our fiftieth yearly : JL volume , is devoted in some measure to
education . When the Publishers' Circular was first floated education could not have occupied
the space in cataloguing demanded by the immense number of scholastic books which are
necessary to-day . There is every reason to look with satisfaction upon the growing bulk
of the educational numbers which we have the privilege of issuing twice a year ; for they ,
in more senses than one , speak of progress in the solution of the two great problems :
What to Teach , and How to Teach it . With all its present 4 h benefits in organisation *—^ , *" and in
appliances , which many are prone to think perfect , teaching can never be an immovable
science . [ Lately we took an opportunity of hastily
reading the first report of the Royal Commission appointed to inquire into the working of
the Elementary Education Acts in England and Wales , and were particularly struck with
the evidence , which gave signs that the ultimate gain to educationists by the
publication of the complete report would be very considerable . One particular point could not
fail to fix the attention of those who are more especially interested in the books used in
elementary schools . The point referred to was " * that , amidst all the disagreements and
mutterings and complainings respecting the machinery of the national system , not a word was said
¦ agains wh ich t are the provided character for the qua successful lity of the advance books
of the great crusade of knowledge . The existence of the Royal Commission is
largely due to the growing feeling which sprang from the supposition that the national
system has begun to push the voluntary system out of the field . The report recently published gives no indication
re-•¦ ' , - ==
V specting the views of the Commission ; * it
contains evidence only , and that evidence belongs to matters administrative . Possibly ,
when all the reports are published , we shall have a complete account of the state of the
schools of the people . The evidence of a few of the elementary teachers themselves will
doubtless add to the value of the testimonies of high officials . The editors of the chief
scholastic newspapers should also be able to give valuable information ; and as to the
literature of schools , some important hints might be supplied by the chief publishers of such
