The Catholic Educational Review, Vol. 5

Excerpt from The Catholic Educational Review, Vol. 5 The educational institutions and methods of the ancient Chinese are of unusual interest in the history of education because they may be said to exhibit in the most pronounced form the characteristics of Oriental education in general. Besides, China has moved so slowly - indeed, until quite recent times, she may be said not to have moved at all - that present conditions adhere so closely to the traditions of the past as to reproduce that past with historical fidelity. With the new era, ushered in by the Imperial Decree of September 2, 1905, an era of revolution in matters educational, we do not concern ourselves here. Our interest is rather in the past, an unusually long period of conservatism and stagnation in all that pertains to the training of youth. Setting aside as doubtful, to say the least, the claims of the Chinese to extreme antiquity as a race and an organized empire, we may with safety admit that the educational system of ancient China was in existence in the year 2250 B. C. and persisted with very few changes until the year 1905 of our era. Like all the Oriental races, the Chinese took their ideal of life and, consequently, of education, from their sacred literature. This consisted of the "Classics" edited and in part written by the great religious teacher Confucius (about 550-480 B. C.).
