evr year. Teachers holding second
andid grade certificates are becom
ing fewer, while the proportion of col
leg graduates is larger than ever be
fore. The "incompetents" are gradual
ly being eliminated.
The greatest defect noticeable ip our
schools is the d'sarty between. town
and country ~aol due not so much to
a difference ih teaching talent as to the
fact that the patrons in the country can-'
ot or will not see that their interest
lies in the regular and prompt atten
dace of their children during the en
tioe term of the school. Possibly the
folloring reasons will in a measure ex
plaIahis condition: Clarendon county
lies in the great cotton producing belt
and is eggyical of other counties in this .
section of -she State. The negro popula
tion largedy predominates, and those
who have ade a study of labor condi
tions forsthepast few years observe that
each year .inds .a larger percentage
ceasing to work uder the contract sys-.
ten, and instead, either flocking to the
towns and cities, or rbecoming renters
:or eroppers, and who. lave their own
crops to gather. This.eonditionl is ren-,
ding slabor scarcer and less reliable
Leach year, hence many .white farmers
(feel the necessity of keeping.their chil
dren home during the early faII.months
to help in picking cotton, and imn other
farm work. Thus it is seen nhat if our
country schools open too early, such
chdren lose several weeks at the open
ing of the term. attending only during
the winter months, during which time
bad roads and bad weather prevent full
and regular attendance. Consequently
me pupils "mark time" to a large ex
eat, and often leave school altogethet
1ore completing the fifth grade.
E am convinced more than ever that~
weaeed some form of compulsory atten
dam law. Ever since the State began
to ..pport a free school system, each
year ends the State advancing along
that.4ioe, constructing new avenues by
which .the people can enjoy better edu
eatiaadvantages. Yet notwithstand
ing aldis, we find hundreds of parents
seemingg indifferent to the educational
welfare of .their children, looking only
o the material side of their existence.
Fortunately all are not of this type,
etherwise noprogress would be 'in evi
he best .way to hasten the day of
bettr educational conditions, since the
State has made, and is making it easier
each year -to obtain an education, is to
begin some platocompel attendance.
Educational interest is the barometer
by which thre progressive development
of every community can be measured.
It takes an educiated parentage to ap
preciate fully the advantages and bene
its of an education, hence we cannot
aipect a ,too rapid development, but
must bide our time in patience, .labor
ing faithfully all the while for that ideal
ondition wtich we all so mueh desire.
