S 7HE TEACHER AND TH? CITY. ?
By CHARLES F. THWING, LIAD,
5P President of Western Reserve University and Adolbert College.
Tho teacher of tho American public
school Is tlio most Important force for
the Improvement of society. Ho rep?
resents, the chief power recognized and
? constituted by the law for tho enrichment
und preservation of the Stato. The Stato
determines the character of the men who
shall practice law before Its courts. Tho
Stale also dctcrmlnos the ohariieter of
the men. who, as physicians and dentisi?,
shall practice their healing arts among
The Stato turns over to the church .the
determination of the character of tbo
men who shall bo its priests and min?
isters. But in the case of tho teacher,
the Stato determines not only who may
and who shall not teach In Its public
schools, but also tho State pays out
of Its own treasury for tho teaching thus
rendered. The State furthermore deter?
mines that boys and girl?, up to a cer?
tain age, shall submit themselves to this
teaching for a certain number of weeks
of each year. It ?coins, therefore, timi
tho Stato commits to the teacher In a
way of special significance and responsi?
bilities most serious, and peculiar duties
for its own preservation nnd enlarge?
AVhat Is thus said In reference to the
function of the State In general applies
with special significance to the city. For
tho forces of the Commonwealth are cen?
tralized In tho city. The powers of tbo
city for righteousness are the most po?
tent, Its tendencies towards wickedness
are the most evident. The forces of tho
wholo Stato ot ovcrv sort are here found
raised to their tenth powor. The best
and tho worst, tho richest heritage and
the most promising lusauraneo for the fu?
ture, the finest personalities and the most
degraded characters, tlio nobles generosi;
ties and tho most miserable mean?
nesses, are hero found in evidence. There?
fore, the city represents ilio supreme op?
portunity and tho most useful tool for
the teacher of tho American public school,
Thoro aro noverai forces which help to
constitute civilization. Among them aro
tho family, tho church, tbo government;
literature, commer?a und personality. Tho
family represents lovo; the church repre?
sents religion; the government represents
authority; business represents l'orco; lit
ernture represents truth; and personality
represents inspiration. Love, rollglon, au?
thority,* truth. forco. Inspiration are
mightiest forces constituting civilization
und promoting its progress.
But thoso powers aro tho powers which
the tcachor uses. Tho toachor represents
tho love of ? ho family. If a teacher fail
to lovo his students, ho Is not worthy of
being a teacher. If lie bo unublo to soo
tho soul of character In tho midst of those
little bits of humanity, ho has no right
lo stilliti Jn tho school-room. Ho must
love. Bo It said, too, thnt tho teacher
Is a a lover, Ho puts his own heurt
into tlio lives of these children.
Tho toachor also uses religion, 1 do
not mean that the teacher should use the
Protestant faith or tho Roman Cat hol Ig
failli, or any other faith. 1 recognize tho
obligation of tho statute, but I do mean
thai religion represents tho relation of
man to ultlmute reality. Concerning? the
notion of that ultimato reality peoplo
differ. One man says It Is a person; an?
other man snys it Is uu Impersonal power;
but whatever It be, the toucher has u
right to uso a broad Interpretation of that
ultimate reality for the formation of char?
actor. Respect and obedience to that re?
ality, ho has u right to touch. Without
such teaching, Instruction lucks tho high?
est relationship: with It, Instruction takes
, upon Itself a sky nnd a firmament.
Tha teacher also uses tlio essence of
governmental authority. He represents
the government; ho Is coiiHtltutd by tho
government: to tho government ho owes,
uliegiunuo. This officer of tho kiw bini?
noli should so Impress upon students tho
duty of respect for authority, that euch
shall become a better citizen, as well aa
a better man or woman.
In the administration, too, of the school,
tho tnaoher represents thu ossene? of com?
merce, force, Ho uses execullvg skill
l?o la to be ue.tlvo and strong lu oolng,
Tho man of human forco entering Into
tho administration of tho public school
system Is akin to the mnn of human
force that enters into great commercial
It Is also to be said that tho toachor
represents the power which constltuloi'
or helps io constitute literature, truth.
Truth is the chief element of his work;
truth Is the atmosph?re of his life; truth
is the Instrument of his aorvlce. Tho book
as embodying truth is both Wb competilo))
und lila servunt. Tho shield of tho old?
est collego In America, consists In part
of an opon hook aerosa which is written
tho word Veritas. Such u shield would
bo a proper symbol for every public
Tho teacher also represents personality.
An u personality bo umbodli's that su?
premo ouiilllv of life known us Inspira?
tion. This lu Ufo Itself. The most valu?
able force In. e voi y school-mum Is not '
the room, Is not the tools, but is, or
ought to he, the teacher himself. Ho
should bo a great "human" lo quicken, to
arouse, to enlarge, to uplift his ?tu
Therefore In tho uso of theiio forces,
love standing for tho family, religion
standing for the church. g?vernn\ent
standing for authority, commerco standing
for force, literature utandlnsr ror truth
and personality standing for Inspiration,
the teacher Is the mightiest power for
the enlargement and . tlie enrichment o?
the Amorean city. - -
