THREE TREATISES ON TEACHING GOSSELIN, Charles-Robert.

A most interesting sammelband of three rare French works on education from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
In the first work, Charles-Robert Gosselin (1740–1820) advocates a radical overhaul of the existing system of education in France through the destruction of most existing colleges and the expulsion of ‘the crowd of mercenary teachers of which schools are full’. His Plan discusses the advantages of public over private education, recommends more women teachers, and presents his thoughts on suitable locations for schools, the appointment of teachers, and subjects for study.
