Written before, but published after The First World War, this volume's plea for a national system of education which will produce a nation of prosperous, morally fulfilled people able to live at peace with other nations is doubly poignant given the sacrifice of the `lost generation'. However, the author also sees the horror of the War as an opportunity to change human destiny through education, an opportunity to abandon the narrow system of education in favour of one which will `bring education in touch with life' and provide Britain with the intellectual and moral efficiency necessary to steer her through the following turbulent years of the twentieth century.

Covering the core subjects of the English school curriculum in the early twentieth century the chapters in The Modern Teacher, if somewhat utopian, describe best practice in teaching of the particular subject and suggest possible improvements. One chapter also discusses the importance of the relatively new subject of citizenship, as well as the moral education of pupils.
