Relating the Curriculum to the Supreme End of Education

Gonzaga L'Heureux, Fordham University


"In the world, says Goethe, are few voices and many echoes, and the echoes prevent our hearing the voices distinctly." One mighty voice has just been heard, that of the Chief Magistrate of the United States. His spiritual message is now gently and effectively working its way to the restless and discontented minds of thousands of American People. Had Mr. Coolidge uttered but these words during the whole period of his administration, he would deserve a place among the great educational reformers of our age. Because God Himself has vested civil rulers with something of His divine authority, they, when they hearken to the voice of the Spirit speaking within their heart and manual! In his preface then he would be relieved of the task of warning his novice disciple "to be on his guard and think before he accepts.”
