It may be of interest to the peo
ple of Kauai to note the progress
and some of the changes in our
Our schools have just closed
with an enrollment of 3539 pupils.
A year ago we had 2917; in De
cember. 1911) our enrollment was
2729; in 1908 it was 2588.
Our present' report shows 604
llawaiians a n d part Uawaiians;
the report of December 1911-532.
We now have 649 Portuguese; a
year ago we had 490.
We just closed with 17( 6 Japa
nese and a vear ago with 1425.
Our Chinese show an enrollment
of 219 while a year ago they show
ed 241. The Filipinos, Spanish,
Porto Ricans, Russians a n d
Koreans enroll at present 325 and
a year ago they had 190. We have
1880 boys and 1659 girls.
We have a force of 94 teachers;
a year ago we had 68 and in 1910
theie were 59 employed. We now
average 37 pupils to the teacher; in
191! we had 43; in 1910 there
were 46. In 1908, 54 of the
pupils were in the first grade; in
1910, 497c; in 1911,43; in 1912,
34 V .
This is worthy of notice. If our
progress were on the basis of 19t)8
we would have 1911 pupils in the
first grade at present, with 4 he
progress of 1910 there would be
1734; on the basis of 191 1 we would
have 1521 , whereas we now have
1238 pupils in the first grade. If
you will stop and think of the
number of teachers and the cost
it would be to put the first grades
in the past on to the basis of pie
scnt progress you will note that
our schools are certainly going
You may say what about the
progress in the advanced rooms?
In 1908 there were .088 percent
of the pupils in the 5th. 6th. 7th.
and 8th. grades. On tne basis of
that progress there would be to
day in our schools 311 pupils in
these grades; as it is we have 530.
This progress is due to several
causes. Our Normal is giving us
a very clticient body 01 primary
teachets; the increased salary holds
our good teachers longer in the
service and enables the Department
to let out unqualified persons and
fill their places with certificated
teacher; our Hoard ot Supervisors
have given us a sufficient number
ot new school loonib to relieve the
teachers from excessive numbers;
the teaciiers are giving more de
votion and spirit to their work,
are taking mo e professional p ei s
and having 11101 e n.und table iiKe.
iugs in their own siic.ois; t. e
pupils h.ive fine little libiaries
from wi:i' h they take books for
reading, the preparing in written
form for each day's work and the
generally improved system has
brought about these results.
The school situation looks most
promising to me. It is true that
there is a little "fixing" to be
done all along the line but our
equipment compares favorably
with similar conditions in t h e
states and we have reasons to con
gratulate ourselves in that line.
Our teachers are doing good and
artful work; second to no similar
body in the Stales; in fact I feel
that they are doing a much better
work and 1 have had yeais ol" ex
perience there as well as years of
