To the Principals and Teachers
Superintendent W. T. Pope has
notified me of the following resolu
tion passed by the Commissioners
of Education at their meeting held
in Jan., 1912:
"Resolved: That the Supervising
Principals hold a regular annual
meeting in Honolulu, just prior to
the summer meeting of the Com
missioners of Public Instruction,
for t!iL- co isideration and discussion
of various educational problems
and to formulate recommendations
thereon; that school principals and
teachers may send in suggestions
for consideration at these meetings
and may be present to take part in
the discussion by invitation. In
case of a minority vote on any sub
ject under consideration, minority
reports shall receive due consider
ation by the Commissioners. The
questions to be discussed and voted
upon at these meetings may include
a. Change and adoption of text
b. Changes in Course of Study
and their adaptation.
c. Changes in the forms of the

Supervising Principals' reports and

Kauai, am desirous that this reso
lution oe carried out in spirit as
well as in letter, and I therefore
ask each principal to place my cir
cular letter in the hands of their
assistants with the request that they
avail themselves of their rights un
der the resolution.
It has been said that the Course
of Study is not .adapted to the
country schools, that too much
work is required, that some of
tne work is too diihcult for its
grade, that there are too many
fads, etc., etc.
It is to find out how much real
merit tliere is in these criticisms
from the teachers' point of view
and to receive from each one their
I would like to have principals
consider the whole Course of Study
when commenting upon it; let as

the teachers of schools of mixed
grades can consider it from their
point of view.
It is earnestly desired that all
criticisms have a constructive aim

neatly and clearly set forth with
the recommended change fully ex

Course of Study will come under
one of the following heads:
1. Are you fully satisfied with
