It is inJcod most gratifying to learn following the threats that are al
leged lo have been passed around thai the Copeland course of study is the
creature of the thoughtfulncss and public spirit of Commissioner of Public In
sltuction Worth Aiken. It is .vet uncertain whether Mr. Copeland was in
tpiird by Mr. Aiken, or Mr. Aiken was sjirred up by Mr. Copland. This
doubt is due lo the r-porlcd remark of Mr. Copeland that his fight was the
culmination of a fifteen cars' M.uggle.
Since the Supervising Principals of the public school system are now
thoroughly agreed on the program for the coming year, and there seems lit
tle danger of an injurious upheaval tint will overthrow the educational work
of years, the altitude of Aiken and Copeland does not make so very much
The recent session of the Commiss'on of Public Instruction has brought
out ihc indication however, that som; of the Commissioners have a wrong
impression of the scope of their duties.
In one or two instances, the Commissioner seems to think that he is the
man in executive control of the teacheis and the teaching for his county, and
objects lo any "interference." It is pleasing that Commissioners should take
a personal interest in their work, but if the department is to be a success all
the branches must work with the least possible friction under the executive
head, who is ihe expert director or manager. There must be cooperation
throughout the Territory and a proper recognition of the authority and wis
dom of the experts. Failing in this, the whole system will go to pieces under
the fire of criticism based on personal favor, insufficient and false informa
.: l it.- t..i;,r nmnno the nU lim-r who have not keot in touch with
IIUIl UIIU III. ,v..& u...w..0 -. ,
educational progress, that everything must be all wrong because it is not the
same as "when wc went to school."
We believe the longer Commissionjrs serve on the Board of Public In
struction the more certainly will they come to this conclusion. Experience is
a valuable teacher even in educational administration. Practical men must
soon see the nonsense of the supervising principals, and the Commissioners
and the executive staff of the Superintendent all going off on different tan
Cents, which is the situation that some of the Commissioners have apparent
ly been trying to force.
Willi one or two exceptions there his been no lack of good faith in the
recent controversy. It is more a matter of method and a result of the fact
that the Commissioners "get in touch" with the department as a whole only a
few times a year.
Stirring up doesn't do any harm so the stirrers and the stirrees get down
to business and finally work together for the common good.
This we hope and expect will be done by the men and women who are
held directly responsible for the success of our public school system.
