During this writer's years spent in the several areas of seminary study, a growing interest has developed concerning the basic philosophical structure of education, whether secular or religious. A realization has grown upon this writer that no educational viewpoint or system developed without being based upon some particular philosophy. This was evidenced by both secular and religious systems of education.
A class in "History of Christian Education," and limited study on the history of progressive education brought to this writers focused attention the fact that basic presuppositions in an educational theory profoundly effect the final outcome. With this in mind, as well as a desire to study further into the philosophical structure of progressive education, the question arose as to whether there was a~ relationship between modern progressive education and contemporary religious education.
