"The history of education, much as it has been hitherto neglected, especially in England, must have a great future before it. If we ignore the past we can not understand the present, or forecast the future. In this book I am going to speak of reformers or innovators who aimed at changing what was handed down to them; but the radical can no more escape from the past, than the conservative can stereotype it. It acts not by attraction only, but no less by repulsion. There have been thinkers in later times who have announced themselves as the executioners of the past and laboured to destroy all it has bequeathed to us."
