Report. , i 1
Mil. Emtoii: I . have rend, with
great care m.d attention the Jleport
of the Superintendent of our, public
school, and I wish .to call the atten
tion of the people to something which
said report contains: . : ,
In the tii'St plitce, . I wish that all
white people shall notice the follow
ing sentence: :
. "Our colored : people have here, as
elsewhere in - thr 'State, manifested
more Interest in education than their
white neighbors." , . .
This is certainly very compliment
ary to the colored people, but it easts
a severe stigma upon those white
people who claim that the negroes
are an inferior race, and'ought not to
be allowed to vote.
Look at the following sentence:
"Within a radius oi tony miles or
more there is not a single decent high
school for boys."
If the tAith Is told in this sentence
neither the school at Spencer, Sparta,
Doyle, Sraithville, Short Mountain,
Woodbury, Bell Buckle, Tuilahoma,
Manchester, Viola, McMinnville, nor
the far famed school lately started
at Decherd by the celebrated Terrill,
is a decent high school or boys.
Look at tht, following sentence:
"There is no other school herea
bouts where boys may be prepared
tor college or where young persons
may fit themselves for teachers."
I want th people to understand
distinctly, ' that I explicitly deny
the statement contained in this sen
tt-nctt which I h-ive copied.
i oe report recommends uuin as a
part of the course to be taught in the
public school. If my neighbor de
sires that hus.m shall learn Lati:s, I
am periecuy wining mat said son
shall learn that language, or any
other language; but I am not willing
to be taxed to pay the tuition of boys
who titudy Latin. I am willing to
he taxed to educate my neirhlor's
children to that extent which will
enable them to do common business,
to write a decent letter, to make ca
dilation necessary for a farmer or
ordinary mechanic, and to know
enough of geography and history to
enable them to understand what they
read in the newspapers. In this, I
think that I speak the sentiments of
three-fourths, perhaps nine-tenths of
the tax payers of McMinnville. This
question of teaching Latin and Greek
in the public schools has been dis
cussed, ut 'great length,' in many
large cities, andthe people there have
come to the conclusion, that, if a
man wishes f ogive 'his children a
classical education, he must pay for
it and not tax other people to 'pay
for it. - ' J. P. Clark.
