The World Outside

The World Outside.

But for the less befogged, co-operation remains not merely the keynote to further advance, but the pivot upon which turns the very subsistence of the society we know. Through the distorting windows of the examination house. It is all too easy to see an ill-proportioned landscape.

Utopian, of course, it would be to imagine that the educational organisation of society could be completely independent of that society in the aims and ideals activating its functioning. But just as some lag between the theoretical and the practical is inevitable, so we may hope that education may see far enough ahead to direct the change of social patterns. To foster the co-operative rather than the competitive would involve perhaps as fundamental a change in the University of to-day as can well be conceived. But it would mean that the University would be contributing more vividly and pregnantly towards moulding the shape of things to come.
