His teachings have become known as Confucianism and they continue to influence today’s Chinese and Chinese communities all over the world. ? Confucius was the first to start a private school which accepted students from all classes of the country. He stimulated his students to think by posing questions. ? Confucius spent his whole life trying to restore peace and harmony in society by emphasizing moral virtues and values.
He who learns but does not think is lost; he who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.
Exploring the old and deducing the new makes a teacher.
To learn and at due times to repeat what one has learnt, is that not after all a pleasure?

Tao Xingzhi was born in She County of Anhui Province in 1891. He is a great Chinese educationalist. He devoted all his life to the cause of education until his death. He went to study in the US under an American educator, Dewey in 1914 and came back to China in 1917. He founded the theory of “Life Education”, laying the spiritual foundation for the reform and development of the Chinese people’s education.
When he passed away in 1946, Mrs. Song Qingling eulogized him as “the model of teachers for ever (万世师表)”, and Mr Guo Moruo praised him “Two thousand years ago, we had Confucius, and now two thousand years later, we have Mr Tao Xing zhi”
