Excerpt from Common Sense, or First Steps in Political Economy, for the Use of Families and Normal Classes, and of Pupils in District, Elementary and Grammar Schools: Being a Popular Introduction to the Most Important Truths Regarding Labor and Capital

This work is published, chiefly, in the hope of its having some influence towards the introduction of the teaching of moral and economical science in our schools. It is also intended to help all persons, including children, even without the aid of a teacher, to acquire some knowledge of the most important truths of those sciences.

It will, it is hoped, be impossible for any person, after reading this little work, to question the practicability of imparting a competent knowledge of morals and of political economy even to young children. The circumstances which gave occasion to the work furnish additional evidence of this fact.

In the winter of 1867-8 the author, as a volunteer teacher, gave a series of lessons in the Saturday Normal School of New York to a class of post-graduate teachers "on the object and method of imparting to young children a knowledge of the conditions of human well-being, commonly called 'political economy'." The class numbered about thirty at its commencement, and about thirty-five at its close, and, although the teachers could gain no advancement whatever from their attendance, their punctuality was remarkable, and equalled, if it did not exceed, that of any other class in the institution, although attendance at such other classes on the part of the under-graduate teachers was indispensable to their advancement. The teachers who attended the author's lessons became enthusiastic for the introduction of the teaching of the science into our schools, while the effect upon their own minds, in the additional power it gave them in their teaching was such, that nearly every member of that class has become noted as a specially skilled and earnest teacher.
