School Fads. While school fads have been in vogue in a
parts of the states and have been inv use by teachers who seek to
lead their pupils by short cuts to education there is probably no
state or territory where fads have had such supreme sway as in
Some years ago the Inspector General of Schools secured the
approval of the teachings of a visionary theorist and as fir as pos
sible put his methods into practice and then invited him to come
to the islands at the expense of the tax payers to tell the people
the schools were ideal while every teacher knew that the number
of pupils to reach the higher grades of the common schools was
far lower than that of any state or any other territory in the union
It seemed to be the conviction of those whose duty it was to in
spect the schools that as long as the teacher followed a certain
method the teachers work was a success without regard to results
All of the pupils in the school might remain indefinitely in the
primary grade and although unable to even read or write intelli
gently after nine years of attendance at school, the teacher was
pointed out as one of Hawaiis most progressive educators, reward
ed by promotion and increased pay.
Woodrow Wilson, president of Princeton in an address recently
''We have beeu passing through a period of dissolution of the
standards of education. We have been trying a series of reckless
experiments upon the lads and youths, girls and maidens of this
country, instead of educating them. The children of the last two
or three decades have not been educated. The pupils of our col
leges of the last few decades have not been educated. With all
our educating we have instructed nobody, and with nil our in
structing we have educated nobody.
''I have been teaching for some twenty years that is, I have
been conduct'iiur classroom exercises, but I do not think that I
have beeu teaching any appreciable part of that time. I have been
delivering lectures, sometimes about things of which I knew, but
more often about things of which I had heard. The result has been
that my pupils have remembered my stories and forgotteu- my
"We must remember that information is not education. The
greater part of the work that we are doing in our colleges today is
to impart information. Myfather, who was a man who used very
" precise English, once said, "The mind is not a prolix gut to be
stuffed.' One of the principal objects of education should be en
lightenment, or the unloadit Mie minds of the pupils of the
misinformation that tbey have r. nA.
"Instead, we are daily cramming ti ' ''s with an enormous
mass of irrelevant facts. It is belter to soe one thing than to look
at a hundred. It is better to conduct a student to the inner
chamber of one fact than to take him on a trip seeking greater
"Another important thing is the establishment in the pupil's
mind of the relation between the facts that we impart to him. 1
have always contended that every university should have a pro
fessor of Things in General. Then there is discipline. .There is
nothing impractical in the physical discipline of the gymnasium.
The student is simply trainng his body to meet the emergencies
of life. It should be the same with the mind.
'Any course of study that disciplines the mind is beneficial to
the student. Anything that does not is not beneficial to him. Any
thing that is easy does not discipline. J would advocate giving
children the tasks that are hardest for them to dp, and then, when
they begin to get easy, giving them something else."
