gives out the following statement in
regard to this meeting:
"As announced arrangements have
been made to hold the next teachers
meeting at Whitmire. There were
one or two conditions. First, that the
owners of automobiles would consent
to take the teachers from this side of
the county to the meeting in the morning
and return them in the afternoon.
I felt sure, there was sufficient patriotism
on the part of the owners of
machines, and enough interest in the
schools and the teachers, to get cars
sufficient to give the teachers this out-:
ing and the benefits to be derived from'
a meeting with the Whitmire school.
Anotlu r condition was that Supervisor ,
Hill would put the road in condition
that the trip might be made with
ease and safety.

the teachers over. The following cars 1
have been volunteered: L. W. Jones,

AS TO THE SCHOOLS.
Prof. W. K. Tate, Supervisor of Rural
Schools Writes of the Duties of
Teachers and Trustees.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: We have once more reached the
annual period of unrest in the teach
ing profession of South Carolina. The
rural schools are beginning to close,
and even the town and city schools
are looking forward to commencement
exercises. With the closing of the
year's work come usually the feeling
of uncertainty on the part of the
l ~ ? i " * ~ 4-V.rt T\/->M+i/~vn fnr noYt
~<x ?> to tJLIC ?/VSOAI.A\su 1V? ^.V??
year. This is often accompanied by
the anxious search and furious application
for positions. If the past
years are any indication as to the future,
from 50 to 75 per cent of our
teachers will change places at the beginning
of the new school session.
This instability in the profession,
from whatever causcs it results, is
the greatest curse under which the
schools of the State are now suffering.
It is absolutely impossible for a community
to build up a school or for a
teacher to develop ability or acquire
a reputation as long as three-fourths
of our teachers teach one ^ear in a
""v *?1 ~??v->^+;rv>an Hoc- with the
111^ iilUil suaiciimca
teacher who, from a lack of interest
in his work or from a desire for new
surroundings, is unwilling to cultivate
the fieM which he has entered
long -enough to r^ap the harvest. The
worst recommendation which a teacher
can present to a board is a batch
of letters showing that he has taught
at five or six places in as many years.
The teacher should at least wish to
~ ~ mrY->*vmrnt"v
remain long enougn m uuc
to become thoroughly identified with
the interests of the peopl-e. it is impossible
for him to adapt his teaching
to the needs of a community when
he does not remain long -enough to
become acquainted with these needs.
The fault sometimes lies with the
school board who labors under the
mistaken impression that a teacher
loses his influence as soon as he enters
on friendly relations with his
pupils. Sometimes the board does not
appreciate the fact that a teacher be
comes more valuable witn experience
and deserves substantial recognition
of increasing proficiency. A school
board should show its appreciation
for a good teacher by at least a small
annual increase in salary.
T ast year many.school boards of the
stat-? paid the tuition fee and a part
of the expenses of their tcacher at the
Winthrop Summe.- sclio >1 when these
'.earned to their positions for another
.tear, r shoull 'ike 10 conuncpi t!rs
plan to all the school trust3es of the
State. A few dollars added to the
first month's salary next v-ear as a
partial reimbursement for expenses incurred
on account of Summer School
attendance- will br returned many fold
in increased efficiency and enthusiasm.
Allow me to suggest also tnai
school boards re-elect their teachers
immediately after the close fo the
school so that they may become settled
at once and may make their plans
for the new year.
