In the present volume the author has endeavoured so to present the subject of popular education, which should have reference to the whole man -- the body, the mind, and the heart -- and so to unfold its nature, advantages, and claims, as to make it every where acceptable. Nay, more, he would have a good common education considered as the inalienable right of every child in the community, and have it placed first among the necessaries of life. For the better accomplishment of his object, he has freely drawn from the writings of practical educators, his aim being usefulness rather than originality. Written, as it has been, for parents and teachers, and for young persons of both sexes, it is what it title implies -- a treatise on Popular Education - and is equally applicable to the wants of families and schools in every portion of our widespread country. This is a manual on the subject of Popular Education, embracing such considerations as shall have a tendency to arouse the popular mind to a due appreciation of the importance -- in a political, social, moral and religious point of view -- of securing to every child in all our borders a good common school education, together with such instructions to citizens and teachers as shall constitute a directory to the highest improvement of which our primary schools are susceptible.
