Excerpt from Leaders of Youth: The Intermediate-Senior Worker and WorkEfficiency in religious education through the Sunday school has developed upward from the lower grades. Most of our early American Sunday schools were "Infant Schools," so called. That is, their membership was composed principally of the younger children. The evangelical churches have been seriously engaged for a longer time at the task of religious education of children than of older boys and girls. As a result more real progress has been made and a higher degree of efficiency attained. Progress in secular education, also, during the past century has been most marked in the elementary grades. The whole development of the kindergarten in America has taken place within the past seventy-five years, and its influence upon elementary education has been revolutionary. This development has deeply influenced both the ideals and the practice of religious nurture in religious schools.Recent years have witnessed a marked awakening to the importance of the period of youth in religious education. The scientific study of adolescence has contributed to this interest. Accompanying the increased appreciation of the significance of adolescence for religion has come the realization of how slight a measure of success has accompanied the work of the Sunday school with boys and girls. The realization of the terrific losses in membership during the early teens has come as an accusing conscience, causing religious workers everywhere to inquire the explanation, to question prevailing methods of administration and of instruction, and to seek the better way.One of the first results of this inquiry has been the development of specialized method. Formerly all Sunday schools included all members of the school above the elementary grades in one mass assembly.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
