k GOOD SCHOOL FOR EVERY CHILD
AND EVERY CHILD IN SCHOOL
A Suggestion From the State Supervisor of Rural
Schools to the Country Teachers, Trustees,
Parents and School Children.
The county schools of our state are
now beginning the session of 1911
1912. In my visits among these schools
I 11 nd only one-third to one-half of
the children in attendance. The Heids
are white with cotton to be picked and
1 realize the difficulty, and in many
cases the impossibility, of putting all
the children In school at the begin
ning of t lie session. Allow me to
make a suggestion which grows out
of my own experience as a boy on the
farm, eager to enter school at the be
ginning of the term, but unable to do
SO because of the pressing farm work.
Let every parent see that the chil
dren are at the school at least one
day during the llrst week for classifi
cation. The ambitious boy can then
get his hooks, and in many cases, can
do enough work at home to enable him
to enter his class without serious loss
when the farm work is done and he
can attend school regularly. There
are many days when he cannot work
Oil the farm. On these days he can
go to school and get assistance on
points of difficulty.
Let every country teacher in the
State make a list of all pupils of school
age in her district and endeavor to
get everyone to attend school this
year. A little personal work with
parents and children will yield a rich
harvest, and a broader acquaintance
with your people will make the work
in the school Itself less difficult Let
us do all in our power to help the
pupil who is at work and trying to
study at home.
Let every BCbool trustee in the
state lend the weight of his influence
to i c ure this year the best country
school attendance in the history of
South Carolina. In this way you will
not only make better and more effi
cient men and women of the children
who attend school this year, but you
will also increase your school appor
tionment lor next year. Let us adopt
tor our watchword in South Carolina
tor this year: \ good school for every
child; every child in school.
lust a word to the boy who works,
The same grit and determination
which makes you do your work well,
win enable you to uurmount the dif
ficulties you lind in your books. If
von cannot enter school now, get your
hooks and by a little home study each
day try to keep pace with your class.
Nearly all the men who have achieved
success have surmounted difficulties
in acquiring an education,
