EDUCATING FOR HUMAN GREATNESS Discovering and Developing the Potential in Each Student Lynn Stoddard and Anthony Dallmann-Jones, PhD We must stop trying to standardize students in our schools. Making students alike in knowledge and skills is not only impossible, but negative and harmful as well. It introduces school as a place that automatically focuses on children’s differences as inconvenient and undesirable deficiencies.

Charles Warren Stoddard was born in Rochester, New York on August 7, 1843. He was descended in a direct line from Anthony Stoddard of England, who settled at Boston, Massachusetts, in 1639. While he was still a child, he moved with his parents to New York City. In 1855, the family migrated to San Francisco, California when his father found a job at a mercantile firm.

In this wise and perceptive book, veteran public school teacher/administrator Lynn Stoddard surveys the current state of public education in America and concludes that things have gone terribly wrong. His solution is to have parents and educators start by realizing that standardization in education is neither possible or effective. Only then can they focus on creating schools that truly educate for human greatness.

To create such schools Stoddard proposes that parents, teachers, administrators and school board members keep six cardinal principles constantly in mind:

• Value Positive Human Diversity and Cherish Every Student’s Uniqueness • Draw Out and Develop Each Child’s Latent Talents • Respect the Autonomy of the Individual by Restoring Freedom and Responsibility • Invite Inquiry, Curiosity, and Hunger for Knowledge in the Classroom • Support Professionalism as Teachers Live by these Principles • Parents and Teachers Unite to Help Children Grow in Human Greatness

Educating for Human Greatness deserves an honored place on the reading list of every parent who really cares about the future of their children, every teacher and administrator who puts students first in their professional lives, and every school board member who wants schools to be places where student development is a reality, not just a slogan.

  • Lynn's Stoddard's book, Educating for Human Greatness has the answers to the problems in education. I have my MA in Education, and Lynn was my principal for several years. I formulated my own first grade reading program that he heartily endorsed and supported. He could see children not only learned to read, but loved to read - and if they don't love to read, are they going to read except when they have to? Loving reading should be the goal!
    His book is an easy read, and could do so much good - children loved him, and he worked hard to have a school where every child could succeed - he called it the Great Brain School. Unfortunately our school district couldn't see his vision - our schools are steeped in the philosophy of an ancient tradition. It is not child centered, and indeed anyone who tries to make a change is slapped down. In my over 30 years of teaching I never had a supervisor ever ask what could be done to improve education. It seems to me nobody ever asks the teachers, and who should know better what works with children and what doesn't? Well, Lynn has spent his life trying to change education - and he is getting quite a following, and maybe sometime common sense will again enter our schools. This book, EDUCATING FOR HUMAN GREATNESS BY LYNN STODDARD should be required reading in every teaching university in this country. Wake up parents!! You can make a difference if you'll try. --Beth Shumway Moore
    The book is easily purchased through Amazon.com - very inexpensive, so give it a try!

  • This book was given to me by a mentor when I was developing my philosophy in starting a small progressive school in Texas. I met Lynn at an informal gathering several months later and with his encouragement, wove his Seven Dimensions of Human Greatness into the fabric of our school. Now in our third year, I still am so very thankful for this book and for the opportunity to watch students grow in these dimensions. We have made this book along with David Sobel's books on place based education, foundation stones for our phenomenal school. Today I am ordering two new copies of this book to give to our newest staff members so they will understand more deeply what is at the heart of our school. I hope other educators will try on these beautiful ideas.

  • I have been inspired and motivated by reading Lynn Stoddard's Educating for Human Greatness. Although written as a wake-up call to public schools, any parent or grandparent can implement Stoddard's sound suggestion. For example, I have transformed my family room mini-kitchen into an inquiry area for my grandchildren equipped with a magnifying glass, all necessary equipment for chemistry experiments, etc. I am encouraging each of them to develop their own unique talents, and to choose areas of special interest and learn all they can about them. I have been motivated by Stoddard's work to provide experiences with nature and to discuss the application of things my grandchildren are learning to daily life. Stoddard's philosophies are rock solid and make so much sense! I would encourage anyone who has any influence with children to read this book.

  • This is an interesting (and easy) book to read. I have been involved in education for 20+ years - first as a public school music teacher (one and a half years), as a home educator for 18 years, and now with my own private school. I greatly appreciate Mr. Stoddard's correct concern for children in public school. I believe that he presents one idea that certainly would help any teacher to reach and help the students. Nevertheless, he incorrectly asserts that if parents and public school teachers would institute his idea, that that would take care of the public school problem. Unfortunately, as he never even hints at the foundational principles of the public school, he apparently is unaware that the foundation of the progressive education system is wrong -- anti-Republic (anti- all the principles that the Founders of this country established; yes, even and especially the principle of the inclusion of God). Until that foundation is destroyed and replaced, the public school system will continue to fail and the children will continue to be "dumbed-down" and ignorant and the country will hasten its slide into socialism. As anyone knows, if the foundation is flawed, the building will fail and fall.
