The school law of this state
requires every teacher in a pub
lic school of any kind to have a
certificate to teach. The state
superintendent of education has
recently called attention to the
law, and a circular letter calling
particular attention to this re
quirement has recently been
sernt by the high school inspector
to the principal of every state
aided high school. Notwith
standing all these, dozens of
teachers in these schools through
out the state are yet without
certificates. Most of them are
depending upon their diplomas.
A diploma does Eet entitle the
holder to teach; a .diplom.a from
an accredited college gives the
right to a certificate to teach.
Some of these sc.hools are going
to find themselves embarrrssed,
since no money whatever wil
be sent to any of these schools
until every teacher in it has a
