This paper explores the ways in which John Locke's essay on education can be read in the contexts of modern schools and education. The emphasis of this paper is on Locke's remarks on social virtues, and how these are the foundation of education. Since Locke writes of education as a life-long process, it follows that personal character plays a role in learning and teaching. In this paper, the qualities of social virtues and social relations are re-situated in contexts of schooling, from curriculum to administration.
