New Schools and Europe: 1890–1918

  • W. A. C. Stewart


CECIL REDDIE said that three or four years after opening Abbotsholme in 1889 he needed some advice on developing classroom teaching and J. J. Findlay told him to visit Professor Wilhelm Rein at the University of Jena. This Reddie did at Easter 1893. He visited the Training School intending to stay in Jena for two nights: ‘We saw for the first time what teaching was and for a full fortnight we sat five mortal hours, one after the other, and drank in that which is creating modern Germany.’1
