That for seven years at least William H.
Mnrwell. City Superintendent or Schools,
has made incorrect reports of the progress:
of pupils through the elementary school
nf the city is the blun' declaration of
' Dr Frank I' Hachman to the commit too
on school inipiiry of ihe Hoard of Estimate
In order that the number of over agp
pupils in the various grades may appe.tr
10 bo decreasing, statistics havo been
taken of selected classes at selected times
while no account wa taken of the pupils
who. falling behind, hail been shifted to
IV Hachman. who is one of the special
ists working under Dr Paul H Hantis of
Harvard, who has charge of the inquiry,
gives raclsand figures with arguments 'lo
prove hi assertion, and these will be
taken up al once by the committee of
which John Purroy Mitchel. President,
of the Hoard of Aldermen, is chairman.

The criticism of Dr Hachman are
contained in a repoit. entitled "Over Age

which 1 supplemental to a report recently

approval of Dr. Hanu, who is regarded

the underage, normal age and over ago
pupils in five elementary schools of the
city, where S.2I0 pupils were registered.
The school are typical and the Hrcnnt
nges are not applied lo the entire city
because there ure no figure nhtainabja
for them These reports are only a fw
of the number that are to be made Irom
time 10 time by experts.
The importance of the report may be
indicated by a statement in it thai Ihe
efficiency of a school courie and Ihe
competency of a school administration
depend necessarily upon Ihe progress
of an average pupil through the grades.
If the course is too hard, if the admin
istration or methods are not adapted
to the work the number of pupils who
will go through according to an age
schedule will bo reduced
If the number of overage pupils con
tinues lo increase that shows a defect
in the course, iut a&an increasing number
of noimal age pupils proves the worth
of a ) stem.
