dc.description.abstract The aim of this investigation has been to describe briefly the social factors that have helped to shape the course of education in New Zealand. It may be convenient to consider these from two viewpoints: (a) the geographical and historical influences at work, and (b) the connection between our social and educational practices and values. This inquiry does not claim to be a descriptive account of education in New Zealand, for such accounts are readily available, and have been drawn upon only as they have been needed to clarify the main theme. The social sciences, by their very nature, preclude the degree of objectivity and certainty which is possible in the natural sciences and so, although I have sought to be objective, it is impossible to measure how far my personal attitude has selected facts and their interpretation. All history is selection and generalization is dangerous as many exceptions arise, to invalidate conclusions reached. Moreover, such a wide investigation impinging on many fields has often led to summary treatment and perhaps important omissions. Yet even a preliminary, and by no means comprehensive analysis, may be regarded as a source of further research along the lines of a much-needed sociology of education. en_NZ
