Definition of Educational perennialism

Educational perennialism Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Educational perennialism is a normative educational philosophy. Perennialists believe that one should teach the things that are of everlasting pertinence to all people everywhere, and that the emphasis should be on principles, not facts. Since people are human, one should teach first about humans, rather than machines or techniques and liberal rather than vocational topics.
