Charles Darwin’s Impact on Education

coffeeshopthinking

Charles-Darwin-2Charles Darwin was an English scientist in the nineteenth century who is famous for his contributions to the theory of evolution.  Scientists in the Victorian Era had experimented with various theories of evolution but Darwin was the first to synthesize evolution in a cohesive work, his book On the Origin of Species (1859).  His discoveries were not fully accepted and valued by scientists until the early twentieth century when his theory of natural selection was chosen as the basic cause for evolution.  While he did not impact education during his own lifetime, Darwin’s greatest impact on education came almost fifty years after his death at the famous Scopes Trial in 1925.
