Even the literature on rural
education shows the effects of the
practical application of what were
formerly . only theories. Current
bulletins of the Bureau of Educa
tion describe the training of rural
school-teachers, not as sdmething
that might be done, but as some
thing that has been done and is
done everyday. It is no longer the
problem of knowing what ought
to be done, but of doing it the
p r o b 1 e m of disseminating the
knowledge that is already available
The realization o f this signi
ficance of rural education marks a
turning point in American history.
For the better part of a century
American education developed one--
sidedly as a city and town matter.
To live irrUhe country was to be
isolated from the better things of
civilization including education .
That the population of the United
States was and is predominantly
rural did not seem to enter .the
question. There was a feeling that
the country would take care of it
self; that the "little red school
house" could accomplish every
thing with nothing; that there was
an lnexnaustiDie supply ot country
school-teachers willing to handle
an assortment o f youngsters of
varying ages and abilities, do
janitor chores and perform the
numerous other duties of the old
time schoolmaster, all for a few
dollars per week, with utter dis
regard of the increased cost o f
The awakening from this stale
of blissful indifference toward
country life and country educa
tion did not come until the dritt
from country to city had become
one of the startling pheiioniina of
the age. Then economists exhort
ed boys to stay on the farm"
but the exhortation came too late
wnat boy was going to stay on
the farm when opportunity seem
cd to be everywhere else? There
were no adequate educational
facilities for him in the country
nothing to guide him in his desire
to get along m the world: so he
went to join the city throng and
help diminish the, producing power
of the fundamental class in
society the agriculturists.
Kurai education can not mime
diately and entirely reverse thi
process, but it is the first essential
step. Better rural schools will not
only tend to equalize the ad van
tages of city and country in edu
cational opportunity; they wil
meet the greatest economic need
of our time by increasing the effi
ciency of the coming generation
as producers on the land.
