In looking ovet the room li u

The great majority cf our Kaiia!
teacher-' are ladies and ucu!!ci:i"u
that have been associated with thei
Educational Work in these Is'at ds
for years, manv of them for a num
ber of years', and this fact c in. t
help having a very beneficial i.-iT c'

enough together, especialls iu t'.;o
rural schools The teachers come
and leave again before thev have
been able to learn the conditions
and needs of the community 11 to
acquire that intimate knowledge of
thechildic-n which it is rei.."-sary
that everv teacher should lu-vc.
The vocational education has be
come an integral p a r t of our
school svsK-m It is stiil in a more
or less expel iiiie utal state but pro-
gress is being made and with
patience on the par of the pubiie, 1
the organization and management j
thereof will gradually improve and!
I trust our legislature will show j
generosity in appropriating stiflici-
ent means lo carry it u. j
The vocational education has
been called "Education for Life" ,
and that is after all tlie principal 1
object of all education, to tn.ikel
citizens out of our boys and girls j
bv teaching- them the nobility and
usefulness to themselves and the
country of beiny; able to use their
hands as well as their brains.
Although the Elementary schools
always will remain the most im
portant part of out school svstem
there is a well defined tendency
abroad in the land that the see-on-'
dary class of schools and the High
Schools are becoming; more and
more important, and it is with
some gratification that we can rc-
cord, the establishment of the Ka
uai High eV Grammar School since j
we last met in Convention at!
Jt has been properly started on
a small scale but under its aole
principal and his stafT, has done
well, but cooperation on the part
of the citizens of Kauai' and es-
peciallv on the- part of the people
in the Countv seat is mclsnrv in
order that it shall become of gen-
eral benefit for the whole island '
and I sincerely hope that this co- j
operation will show itself in efforts '
to provide places for intending
pupils to live while attending ;
