A small book on education, more specifically, teachers, from the early part of the 20th century. The author, a teacher himself, goes on what he hopes will be the future of education and the ideals and aspirations to strive for as a teacher, and, even for the powers that be in the education Department. No date is readily ascertained, but the dedication remembers the fallen past students of the author in the Great War (World War I), so the date of publication is probably middle to late 1920s.
