POPULARITY OF CITY
Whv Fathers Send Sons There "Foundation" Type
Has Great Efficiency Fine Class of Boys
ir. City's Private Schools.
Bv the Rev. LAWRENCE T. COLE, M. A.. Ph. D.. S. T. D.,
Rector of Trinity School, New York City.
Have you ever noticed the fact," said
I thn otlmr day n0"' iHtellfRMit oml
observing Vew Vrk teacher, "that out
'f all of the numerous private schools
ir boys new operating in New York city
"hi could count almost on the fingers of
. hand ihe-e that weie In existence
t' rty year ago?"
Ye " he replied, "I have. Hut more
ncnlflcntit than that to my mind la the
fici t lint out of the largo ntimb'r of prl
nie schools for loys In the city nt tho
itfeaent nine no largo proportion can be
oenrded n being In a really prosperous
lenditl'iti and as giving fair promise of
me ,int Mined vigorous life, but most
, i i.nm evi-n some of the most efficient,
rce dragging on from year to year n
ir,nri'i and uncertain existence."
Hi n Hri fact that stands out is that in
no .f changes and chances that have
md do timUe th continued existence of a
i, vaie dav school doubtful and strew
. ,v"ii with thorns, a very large num-
nr .'f ihem do exist and new ones are

'hai there mnt bo, rightly or wrongly.
sm demand for such institutions, and
tint Mm merican Ideal of an educated
ivple is not in the minds of some cltlrens
at Kist fullv satNfled by tho public schools
Sftabhshed by tho Stote.
Now let no one think for a moment
Mi the present writer Is about to pre
n brief against the public scliools.
He i a product of them, and gives placo
-. nonno in appreciation of the great ser
um ihey are rendering to tho republic
md ihe brave and self-sacrificing efforts
heir officers and teachers are making
i. overcome almost insupernblo obstacles
and solve problems whoso terms shift so
rapidly s to make on answer obsolete
slmoi-t before it Is reached The question
tal'ed by the situation Is, "What are the
teasons men give to themselves and to
"triers for sending their boys to private
ilar or boarding city schools rather
nan the public schools?"
Twenty years ago the reply to this ques
tion would in most coses be obvious
ennnih. for nt that time thn city of New
Vork lagged so far liehind the educational
growth of most of the rest of the country
.is m offer practically no opportunity in
hr whole public school system for nde
nist preparations forentrance tocollege.
and the hoy who planned to go to Columbia
r Harvard or Yale or Princeton was proc
tirally obliged to obtain his preparation
at some institution other than those pro
Tided by the State. Rut it is worth not
ing that with the marvellous develop
ment of the gTeat high school system
ef the city of New York, with equipment
and instructors second to none in the coun
try, added to the tremendous increase in
ib number of boarding schools in the
country, there Is still a large demand for
'he private day. and also the lxarding.
school in the city
Now thn choioe of a school for most
city boys is "Holison's choice." for the
clrnumstanoen of his family make the
nnbllo school thn onlv road bT which
hn boy may attain an education, but for
an Increasingly large number of boys I
r)tnthln(? more in desired than thf nexrii
s.irlly circumacrilwHl training of this State
supported institution, and thi "nome
thiriR more" in penerally romprified under
'no or several or all of tho considerations
In th" first plan we, arn met by and
mar quickly dismiss the class of people,
fortunately ft small one In our country,
who are frankly nolx, who send their
Hots to this or that school In order that
thT may there form associations that
mar prove to be tho thin point of the
wri;ei by whioh they or their children
m.iv break into "society " It is quite
'iffHent to say of these people that they
are as "undesirable citi7ens" in the private
school of rood standards as they arc in
'h community at large.
Quito difTetrnt In the second reason,
although it may easily be marked as
snobbish by those who do not think or
whose standards of comparison do not
enable them to appreciate its force. Men
end their children to a certain school
Ucause in that school they will lie asso--taiod
with and form the unique tics of
n-hnoldays with the sons and grandsons
of thof.e with whom their own family has
sustained for many years the closo and
intlmate relations of friendship and asso
cl.iMon In the central activities of life. I
should not call this motive snobbish or
exclusive, but rather it appears to me
" l a very creditable desire to secure
for their children a perpetuation of those
bonds of intimate and trustful intercourse
which cannot lie forged in a day and sel
dom In a generation.
The third reason arises out of a con
viction that tho large classes of the publio
i-chm an unavoidable condition which
h!1 alike deprecate, do not give the op
portunity for individual instruction and
personal guidance which may be found
m h" unaller groups and less rigid pro
cedure of tho well conducted private
chnoi rhn pupil who Is bright and
flnii-'ltlniis and who has a definite purpose
)r h h is eager to attain will learn
wiici-ever thn subject matter of education
i- 'atrly laid before him, but it is too
" icli to expect that in classes of eJver
werjtv five a boy will bo helped to find

most of hi classmates Is a stimulus to
Aside from these general reasons for
tho choice of a private school, a host of
special reasons influence thn parent
Military training Is attractive to many
men from inherited or acquired enthu
siasms, facilities for gymnasium or athletic
training attract a largo number of parents
and pupils, and special methods of teach
ing or hours of the session or arrange
ments for study determine the choice of
others. Hut of all of the st'dat reasons
nono plays a larger part, in spite of the
American prejudice against religion in
the publlo schools, than tho desire of
many parents still to have their children
trained under the influence of the faith
of their forefathers. Men and women
otherwise carelesR In the matter of re
ligious observances will make consider
able sacrifice ir. order to Insure for their
children tho influences of religion from
which they themselves have derived so
little profit. Hut the parent who really
believes in tho religion hn professes will
go to any lengths to secure for his off
spring tho knowledge and practice of
that faith which has been the mainstay
of his own lifo and is reluctant to commit
them to any environment which Is not
impregnated with a consciousness of tho
spiritual facts and forces of life.
This summary of tho chief reasons why
men choose to send their children to pri
vato schools is not exhaustive, but these,
In varied combinations, and with variety
of emphasis, enter more or less consciously
into any selection which parents make and,
I suppose, carry weight, in part at any rate,
in any educated and intelligent man'sestl
mate of the situation. It W not that men
minimize or foil to appreciate the more
thon excellent manner in which our public
schools are trying to solve tho most com
plex and tangled problem presented to
them, but that, realizing the necessary
limitations ns well as the admirable char-
acter of their work, they want something
more for their children, and for that some.
I thing more, which the publlo school can
I not without injustice to the many attempt
to give, they are willing to impose upoi
themselves a voluntary additional school '
a. . " mng as men associate mem- .
selves in oongcninl groups, as long as they
think about education and form personal
convictions as to its problems, an long as
they mould their lives in accordance with
ideals of a definite character, as long as
children are born to them who need in
dividual and special attention in their
training, just so long will privato schools
But the rise and fall of individual private
schools and the many problems arising
from the attempts to finance them suc
cessfully will continue to be a feature of
their history. The privato school, prop
erly bo called, i.e., the school founded and
maintained by private enterprise and for
private gain, must from the nature of tho
case bo of uncertain duration, for in prac
tically all case it depends upon the life,
health and efficiency of some one man who ,
having the insight to perceive some real
unsatisfied need In the educational world
and the practical ability to satisfy this
want successfully, builds up nn institution
wKich furnishes tho supply in response to
the demand. Often this demand is de
pendent on temporary conditions, anil
almost always the ability to supply tho
demand is limited to the one who first per-
If the motive which led to the foundation
of these schools was no letter than a mer
cenary ono, their evanescent character is
perhaps a just retribution, for we Ameri
cans cannot but regard education in some
what the same light as that in which we
look upon religion, and endeavor at least
to appear to deprecate tho mercenary
motive In either activity nut a school
founded upon n sincere and intelligent de
sire to serve somo real and fairly perma
nent need of tho community, with tho
commercial element and tho motive of
private gain hold In htrlct subjection to
tho idealof sen'ico, especially if this ideal
is crystallized into nn impersonal organi
zation or corporation of llko minded, re
sponsible men, may bring forth a benofit
to the communities far out of proportion
to the number of pupils that may lie en
rolled in tho institution.
This Idea Is being practically worked out.
and successfully in many cases, In that
class of private, i. e., non-State schools,
which may properly be designated by the
English term "foundation schools." In
