Dr. Kemps Address
(Continued from page 1)
the city of San Francisco has the very
worst school system In the United
States, and one of the worst In the
world a veritable quagmire of poli
ties, intrigue and inefficiency. You
know doubtless that the superintend
ent of schools was formerly leader of
an orchestra, without knowledge or ex
perience in education, and utterly un
fit for the position.
One of the valuable services render
ed by the bureau is the publication of
bulletins on all matters connected with
education, for free distribution
throughout the country. One of these,
tor instance, gives the bibliography of
education, practically an inventory of
all that has been published on educa
tion, not only in book form, but mag
azine articles as well. Such a work is
of immense value.
The reports of the school surveys
are also published by the bureau, and
are of great value.
As an outcome of the studios which
have been made by the bureau a radi
cal reorganization of the schools is a
thing of the near future indeed is
already in process. What is known as
the 6-3-3 plan Is growing in favor, and
will doubtlessly be universally adopted.
You are probably familiar with the
plan. Instead of eight grammar grades
followed by the high school, there will
be six grammar grades, followed by
throe junior high school and three
more of senior high school. This will
develop a much more evenly balanced
course, and will result In far more
children keeping on into the higher
grades of education.
There is just one other point that
I want to emphasize in this connection
and that is the development and train
ing of leaders. Intelligent leadership
is the fundamental need of a Democ
racy such as ours, and the schools
must produce it. Democratic educa
tion is something new to the world.
Away back in 1601. to be sure, Massa-
chusets established free schools In
order that men might be able to read
the Bible and become intellignet citi
zens. But the Idea took root slowly,
and the public schools fell into such
neglect that a heavy fine was imposed
on counties which failed to keep up
their schools, and only when the fines
outran the teachers' salaries did the
system become effective.
In the American Constitution there
30x3i; CI Ratavia. list 21. 7.
is not a word about education. There
was a very general public Indifference
to it as a public policy and a public
necessity. The feeling was that it was
a matter of individual responsibility.
,-lf you want your children educated,
do It yourself. Why should you look
to me to help you?"
H took 60 years of effort to get free
public schools, and only as late as
the time of the Civil War was a gener
al course of study inaugurated, an ar
bitrary and inelastic affair a sort of
single track line that everyone had to
travel wherever they might want to
go. hTere are some people, even in
these modern and enlightened days,
who worship the ocurse of study. Ref
erence has been made to the Golden
Treasure Readers, which I understand
that you have been using for some
years, and I gather that you have
been required to bow down to it, and
have not dared to whisper a word of
criticism of it lest the Heavens fall
This is all wrong and should not be.
Trained teachers are abundantly able
to think for themselves and should be
encouraged to do so, and should not
be expected to stand in fear and trem
blinb before any course of study, and
it should not be .so dominant and so
ironbound that jt cannot be modified
to meet tha requirements of special
conditions, or so conservative that it
cannot be improved. Take, for in
stance, the teaching of arithmetic. I
can well believe that for you, anyway,
it might be well to cut out about half
of what you are trying to teach and
limit your efforts to the practical re
quirements of everyday life, and be
content to require accuracy and speed
in them, and let the rest go.
In conclusion I would emphasize the
very vital importance of the problems
Involved in the Americanization of
your very diverse and somewhat back
ward population. They will be diffi
cult problems, but not by any means
impossible of solution. The city of
Chicago, for instance, has a much
greater diversity of population than
you have, and a vastly larger mass of
undigested elements, and even it is
not an impossible problem.
Teach the ideals of freedom. School
them in civics, not by tearing to pieces
some little manual of civics, not in de
tail, but in spirit, and emphasize the
great fundamental principles of our
national being and our national dis
tinction, and then we may look to the
future with confidence that our de
mocracy will prove itself all that our
fathers have dreamed.
