THE MORALITY OF OUR SCHOOLS. ,
O110 great ovil of our schools, pri
vate us well as public, is that they
run altogether too much to text-book
work. Nothing is exacted from the
teachers but a servile uttontion to
book lessons. No matter how the
child gets them, if ho can show
"high percentages'' he is an honored
pupil. Two pupils start out together
in the low primary. One child's
mother tries to instil in his mind a
love for truth and honesty, and never
to cheat his teacher in his lessons.
The other boy cheats each day, is
marked high and trotted out for pub
lie admiration as the "star pupil."
The first boy sees this, and by the
time he reaches the iifth grade ho
conies to the conclusion that Ma
mother knows nothing about the
world, and her instructions go for
naught after that. The dishonest
pupil flourishes, but he must hug the
foot of the class because of Ihb
mother's idea of honesty. At once
he renounces her training and falls
into lino for thu . honors. When
those boys leave school thoy will bo
ripe for any villainy that may sur
round them in life. Place them in
a bank or trusted public office where
money is to be controlled, and their
easy virtue will slip away like
"water from a duck's back." Now,
wo do not pretend to say that our
teachers are altogether to blame
for this. Thoy do and will
do what is required of them;
and if conscience and a high sense of
duty to these children is not exacted
of them as a mark of qualification to
teach in these schools, thoy are not
going to spend time on such train
ing and jeopardize their standing by
falling behind in the race for "per
centages." There are schools in this
city where the principals and teach
ers create and keep among their
pupils a pure, lofty tone of honor,
politeness and love of truth, simply
because they cannot help it, being
true themselves. They leave their
mental mark on those schools, and
the parents of those children will
point out such schools fearlessly, for
they know them. With them govern
ment and education is simply the
magnetic influence of superiority and
self-control, the power of a strong,
healthy, honest mind over the
weaker, and only such should over
be allowed to train these children in
our schools. The ten thousand petty,
narrow-minded freaks and whims
which characterize the daily drill of
some of our teachers ar.d principals
would make them the laughing-stocks
of a disgusted community, if brought
out tq public gaze. S'. J?. Exami
ner. How is it in this community?
