A brief text on the “Father” of modern education.
Comenius was an amazing and prolific educator, and has been stamped “The Father of Modern Education”. He was born on March 28, 1592 in Moravia (Czech Republic). He composed many works on education and became famous all through Europe because of his writings. He published some of the first pictures books for children.
Children in Comenius day were trained to repeat memorized Latin vocabulary and conjugations, but they were not taught to think well.
Education for Comenius stretches beyond the boundaries of the classroom and encompasses all of life.
