The attorney-general of Minnesota
holds that it is not the duty of the
teacher to build fires at the school
house, unless so stipulated in her con
tract, says School Education, and
that if it becomes necessary to tem
porarily suspend the school because
no fire has been provided, she should
not be required to make up for lost
time. Should she go to the school
and find that no fires had been built,
and that the trustees had made no
provision for building them, and the
room on that account is not in fit con
dition for the scholars to sit in, she
should on that account send the schol
ars home. It would be best for the
teacher to go to the school house
every morning and afternoon, in
order to show her readiness and will
ingness to attend' to her duties when
ever the room is placed in proper
condition. It is not best for a
teacher, unless she has too severe
hardship, to insist on a strict con
struction of the law.
