Comenius: The Pedagogue of All Nations


In 1928, the President of the Czechoslovak Republic, T.G. Masaryk, wrote, “Comenius was one of the first to demand an educational and cultural policy in the true sense of the word. Today he would have expressed himself as a believer in progress. From a practical point of view the rebirth was attained by education--by a new system of education. Thus Comenius became the teacher, the pedagogue, of all nations.” By looking at Comenius’s example and following his philosophy of education, we as Christian educators can help instigate real change in our institutions and in the lives of our students.
