Eugenics, Race and Intelligence in Education PDF

Clyde Chitty

For over a hundred years, psychologists and human biologists have been engaged in an often heated debate as to whether heredity or environment should be viewed as the determining factor in the creation of the human personality. For teachers and educationists, the discussion has tended to focus on how the human mind functions and intellectual powers develop.
The controversy is often simply expressed in terms of nature versus nurture, with some scientists declaring that human beings are a product of a transaction between the two. To many, such enquiry and speculation is little more than futile and depressing. Yet it can surely be argued that at least with regard to the development of abilities, the nature versus nurture debate has had dire consequences for the education of millions of young people. Furthermore, we need to question why this debate has been pursued with such vigour in both Britain and America.

This is a study into how eugenics and concepts of intelligence have influenced education systems in both the UK and the US. The chapters cover the origins of the eugenics movement, intelligence testing challenged, the durability of eugenics theories, and much more.

The connection between education and eugenics stems from Sir Francis Galton’s work (1822-1911) on heredity. Galton believed that heredity was not only responsible for physical characteristics but also for intelligence, talent, and ability. Galton
