The Educand in Action Is the Most Important Object of Study for the Moral Educator

Elizabeth F Hague, Fordham University

Abstract

Education is a process that begins in the cradle and continues throughout life. The educand, the person being educated, might be studied throughout this entire period in order to obtain a complete report of him in action. Complete life studies of heroes and heroines of history show, in most cases, that the characteristics and traits developed in youth serve as sign posts to indicate the future moral course of the educand. It is the Writer's purpose to confine her study to the educand during his or her school career. The moral educator may be any one of a number of persons who come into contact with the educand. The parents, the nurse, the teacher, the Sunday school superintendent and teachers, the clergyman, are all moral educators. The term here used, however, refers especially to the public school teacher.
