AKOTHER "SCHOOL ROW". SETTLED
ThecommiFsionrs of public instruction, aft
r long and weary: sessions, have straightened
it another "school. row." 'The tumult and the
: outing have died ;V two teachers have I teen
: opped ; the public has heard a great; deal of
orges and counter-charges - on matters that
uuld be ridiculous xlid they not so .vitally con
in' pace and pivgrt'ss' In tlio Normal" School.
The school commissioners allowed a remark
Me latitude in the presentation of the chaiges
y the two Normal School teachers who brought
edflc complaint against iMncipal Wood, and
e. principal .was given every opportunity , to
nswer "these complaints. That. he. did so satis-
:ctorily to the commissionis evidenced by their
jtion in sustaining the principal unanimously.

nture to say that no hoard of education in the
ni ted States has to take-- tiiifc -for more petty
luabbles and minor bickerings, than the board
:i this territory. Educational affairs have come
i an unfortunate pass when a day and a half is
Icvoted to discussing the dismissar of two sub
i-dinates in a public school. If the. active heads
( f the sch(K)l work cannot handle tteeir business
vithout forcing upon the commission the settle
ment of such casesnot oulv the? settlement but
.in entire review--there is obvious weakness in
the steiii lr the men who run.it.
The commission did the only logical thing in
1 hrashirig tout the; whOleiilatter "and allowing
loth sides every xpiortunity ttf air their griev
ances or reasons for action. -Abd under facts
presenttil the commission' was right in sustain
ing the department in dropping the teachers.
The point is, however, that the department ought
to be able to settle these cases without having
to appeal to the decisiou"V)f thtTTjoarti' to back
it Up. i -J ' '
The territory looks to the sii.Krintendent of
public instruction to check the kind of "school
politics that arose in the Normal School. The
head of the Normal, School is admittedly a man
of ability, but, riglitly or wrongly, he is the sub
ject of much couiplaiut oh the part of the teach
its under hivi. Perhaps some of these teacliers
feel that ."individuality is minimized and system
is over-emphasized. The policy of the commis
sion itself proves 4hat the best way to setile a
complaint is to give fair, thonmgli and sympa
thetic attention to grievances, and, if imaginary,
the gTH?vinecs will be talkitl into thin air and
' Harmony and cojerat ion. between a princi
pal and his teachers are as neccs;vry to juog

of study or adwpiate facilities for work. And.
