The one-room, oae-teacher in rural
Hawaii, as in all other rural regions,
is the most expensive and least satis
factory type of school. It is physically
and pedagogically Impossible for one
teacher to teach satisfactorily four or
five or more grades. '
The one-room school, with an en
rollment of twenty pupils, more or
less, requires land, buildings, cot
tage, water supply, .supervision, etc.
The unit cost Is far greater than If the
pupils were part of a large graded
school, By consolidating several schools
at one central point, then erecting a
modern graded school, and transport
lng the pupils at public expense, the
taxpayers in many mainland rural re
gions have found that there occurred
not only a marked financial saving,
but also a noteworthy improvement In
In many of Hawaii's smaller rural
communities, the one-two and three'
room schools are doing good work.
The teachers, in many instances, are
devoted and conscientious. After they
are working with Inadequate equip
ment and obsolete materials as trans
portation facilities increaae in number
and efficiency, the usefulness of these
pmaller schools can be increased, in
many localities, by judicious consolida'
tion. The public school bouse is the
logical community center. With fllir
mlnation, movable seats, and other
facilities, it could be effectively used
for community gatherings. Experien
cet in many mainland regions shows
that the consolidated school quickens
the interest of pupils, teachers and com
munity. It means better education.

Home for Feeble-Minded
Evidently the rest of the world
keeps posted on what is going on in
Hawaii. The Survey, a New York
social welfare journal of wide circula
tion, has an intelligent article on "The
feeble minded in Hawaii."
According to this article it seems
that we have 336 reported feeble-mind
ed, with the implication that there,
are a good jnany more not reported.
Seven of this number are over 40
years of age, 95 are between 15 and 40,
and the balance under 15.
As the result of long experience
elsewhere it has become strikingly evi
dent that the farm colony type of pro
vision for these feeble-minded folk is
by all means the ideal one.
"Such experience has shown that
the farm colony school is superior to
any other in that it permits of life in
the open, rather than within the con
fines of an institution, and In fact it
offers broader opportunities of useful
employment, whereby many of the in
mates are made the happier and more
contented, and at the same time be
come partly or wholly self-supporting.''
Accordingly a fasl colony of some
600 acres in extent is being establish
ed and will soon be ready for occupa
tion. Dr. George S. Bliss has been secured
as superintendent of the enterprise.
