VISITING THE SCHOOLS.
"ounty Superintendent of Education
Wants to Meet Trustees and
Parents at the Schools.
The county superintendent of edu
ation has visited several of the b
chools during the past two weeks, n
Lnd had hoped to continue these visits b
In speaking of the matter, Mr. Aull
aid: "I wanted to spend two or three 0
lays in each week in visiting the
chools until all of them had been
risited but owing to the condition of t
he roads and the exceedingly bad d
veather, these visits will be postpon- r
,d until the weather breaks. I do I
his not so much on my own account b
)ut for the reason that in visiting I e
he schools, I want to get the trustees b
tnd as many of the patrons out to a
neet me at the schools as possible, p
and with that end in view, I have noti- ia
led teacher and trustees of the day :
and the hour at which I expected to a
e at the school. In all of the schools, v
,xcept one, that have b:en vi.itcd, a
everal of the trustees and p;.trons
avie been present, and this one the .
otices were not received in time. My
urpose is to see if I can not arouse
Ln interest on the part of the patrons
n the education of their children, and
feel that if I can get them out to
he school building, and let them see
he condition of the building, and r
neet the teacher in the school room,
hat I may be able to enlist their en- f
:ourageemnt and sympathy with the P
eacher in her work, and also arouse
hem to the importance of improving
he environment of the children in
"I will begin the rounds again as
oon as the weather clears, and will
;ive notice in time so that parents
nay meet me at the school building. t
want to see present not only the
athers and the trustees, but I would d
ike to have some of the mothers to
ome and meet with me. If it is pos
ible to make the mothers realize the
[nportance of giving a little more at- d
ention to the conditions surrounding
heir chilren in school, I am satisfied t
hat a great work will be accomplish
d in the education of the children in
te country. With this in view, I am.
rging that the parents come out to.
te school building. I am almost h
eady to conclude that a great many
arents seem to .give less attention
Sthe proper training and educationa
f their children than they do to their
usiness affairs, and I am satisfied h
liat it is not on account of lack of li
aterest, in their children but simply F
ecause they have~ not stopped to con
ider the good they might do in this F
rork by giving to it a little of their
ime and attention.
"I hope by Tuesday to publish in
e papers a schedule for several of
e schools during the next two
reeks. I would like also to empha
ize the fact that when I. make an
ppointment at a certain hour, it is
iy purpose to be there at that hour,
ecause in order to get around to all
f the schools in the county before't
ey close, it will be necessary to vjisit f
go or three each day. This can be*I
one, and from one to one and one-a
alf hours spent with each school."
