HIGH HOWELL. R. W.'M
t- f- Secretary.
that nobody hut themselves knows
what they proposed. Up to the
time when Baldwin, seconded hy
Wood, Jearried a motion to discon
tinue the reading of the Copeland
Wclls course of study, not one of
the stand-patters had read so much
as a paragraph of it Yet they
characterized it in sueh contradic
tory terms as " reactionary " and
radical;'' "antiquated" and "re
volutionary.'' Whatever the merits
or otherwise of the course of study
proposed !y Copeland and Wells, it
does- not appear that it ever came
before the meeting for consideration.
Nor had the stand-patters them
selves anything to offer towards
complying with the Commissioners'
request, except that Gihson read a
slight modification affecting the
seventh and eighth grades only
hardly one per cent of the school
population. Nor could this propo
sition have been a serious one, since
it was never put' to vote or indeed
heard of after its one reading.
Fourth As to the motives of the
stand-patters: There is much cri
ticism of the public schools; some,
perhaps, unreasonable; some, pro
bably, well founded. The Nkws is
given to understand that, the num
ber of pupils passing the fourth
grade has fallen twenty-five per cent
in the past ten years, precisely the
period in which Wood and his
methods have dominated the
schools. We are told also that
Wood is a faddist of high degree
and the prince of nature-fakers.
He is said to be entirely out of har
mony with the best teachers in his
school as well as out of touch with
modern methods of teaching, lie
knows absolutely nothing by expe
rience of the conditions which pre
vail in the rural schools of the ter
ritory, but assumes that Honolulu
conditions are identical with those
prevailing throughout the country
districts. He sits in the quiet of
his office in the Normal School and
evolves bis theories and methods of
teaching out of his inner conscious
ness, and not out of experience and
knowledge gained by actual contact
with pupils in the schools. He
seems to have been very largely
concerned in the compilation of the
present course; of study, as well as
wilh the manner of putting it into
execution, and is therefore n sponsi
ble for the condition in which we
find the schools. So it appears that
the whole opposition to. the Cope-land-Wells
course of study simmers
down to an effort on the part of the
stand-patters to save their faces as
educators and hold on to their jobs
a stunt which nrght not have
been easy had the w hole educational
situi'tion leen canvassed iu the open
as the Commissioners evidently in
tended. Fifth As the result' accom
plished: While we know nothing
as to the points involved in the rival
courses of study, the insurgents seem
to have carried off the honors of
war, having compelled the entire
meeting to devote two weeks of hard
labor to a job which none of them
except Copeland and Wells had in
tended, to touch at all. We venture
to predict that w hen the new course
of study is published it will be found
to have but little resemblance to the
old. Superintendent Pope comes
out of the fray a sorry spectacle. As
one of the Honolulu papers puts it,
he has nothing left but his hide;
and that would have been riddled,
had it not lieen as thick as that of
the rhinoceros. The last shreds of
honor, dignity and authority seem
to be gone. Flouted by the Com
missioners, openly defied by his
sul)ordinate3, publicly accused of
falsehood, ridiculed by the press, he
stands today a mere scarecrow, a
man of straw, through whom the
astute, unscrupulous Wood pulls the
wires that manipulate the educa
tional policies of the department.
Pope seems to hae lost all control
of his department if he ever had
any real control and is now ignob
ly waiting to be kicked out of a
position he was never qualified to
