When the best things arc not possible, the best miij be nuule of those
that are. Anon.
Principal Copcland of Maui is quoted as saying that all he wants is a
hearing. Mr. Copcland has never had much of anything else in educational
mailer except hearings, and in view of his attitude he has been treated with
lite utmost consideration by the department and the public.
' SCHOOL PRINCIPAL CONTROVERSIES.
Supervising principals of the public schools by n surpriingly small ma
jority finally decided, at today's meeting, to do the only sensible thing that
could be done with the course of stud), namely, proceed to the discussion
of new proposals but go forward from the basis of the present course as
laid down by the department.
The attempt to force an entirely new scheme of elaborate detail upon a
meeting of principals and from that meeting upon the Commissioners of Pub
lic Instruction is at once so lacmg in administrate judgment as to seri
ously reflect upon cither the common sense or the good intention of the people
A course of study is primarily a question for the experts.
The present coutsc of study in the public schools has been developed from
years of experience, and the application of the advanced ideas of American
educators to the conditions wc hac here in Hawaii. If this course were ab
solutely perfect, it would indeed be remarkable. On the other hand expert
educators of the Territory hate no right to persecute the children of the
present day and dwarf the mental horizon of future generations by jumping
the whole leaching force and the children under them into a new scheme of
study, following a few hours of discusion here in Honolulu. Should the
assembled principals endorse any such movement, the Commissioners of
Public Instruction ought to be removed from office if they should sanction it.
The Bulletin is satisfied that the course of study in the public
schools of this Territory is not so far astray as to justify the rumpus which
Mr. Copcland of Maui and those following him in his controversial char
acteristics arc striving to stir up.
Agitation is a good thing when properly applied and timely. It is evil
and dangerous when brought about in such a way and at such a time that it
ihrealens to overthrow much of the woik that has been done for educational
For the first lime in the hsitory of the Territory the public schools of the
Territory arc now on something like a proper financial fooling. They need
to be let alone for a while, or at least to be free from any revolutionary meas
ures. A bickering controversy started among the principals is just the op
portunity sought by the enemies of the public school teacher, to upset all that
was done by the last Legislature for a proper financing of the educational
department. That enemy on the outside cannot be successful however un
less he is aided and abetted by an erring controversial misfit on the inside.
If the supervising principals and the Commissioners of Public Instruction
want to create chaos in the educational department immediately upon its
having been fairly well straight! ncd out and placed in the fairway of prog
icss and efficiency, they will proceed with a lovely row over the course of
