State Aid to Public Schools.
Up until 1907 such a thing as state
aid to the public schools of South
Carolina was unheard of. Each coun
ty had to support its own schools out
of the three mill constitutional tax,
poll tax, dog tax and the district spe
cial tax. The legislature in 1907, to
encourage the building up of eollcient
high schools made an appropriation.
In order to secure the aid from the
state the schools had to attain a cer
tain standard of effillency. Only the
smaller towns and rural districts
were entitled to the benefits of this
act. The benefits derived from this
now provision were so keenly marked
that there has been a gradual devel
opment in the system. . The general
assembly in 1909 wishing to extend
its assistance to the weak schools of
the state passed the term exteqsipu or
Garris act. The aid from the state
in every respect is based on self help.
The schools which were entitled to
i)articipate in this fund were schools
who, with the regular funds could not
run flve months and who vote a spec
cmal tax of two mills or more. They
would receive from the state a suni
elual to the tax ralsed not to exceed
$100 to any district. This has lj)d(1
the schools of L.aurens county a great
deal. It has stimulated tho voting ol
more, tax and helped to give the boys
and girls in the rural district a school
term of two months longer. This
y ir Laurens county reccived $2,556.151
under the term extension act. Thls
was distributed ziuong thirty school,

''lhe benefits derived from this state
aid have been greatly felt by the one
teacher schools. The purpose of the
legislature has been to reach the
schools of the rural districts. There
Were som)e schools fin thle rural dis
tricts who had over fifty pupils and
ought to have two teachers. In or
decr to encourage the employment of
two teachers thme legislature has taken
another step,. andl In my oiniionl, the
most liportant step) of ail. viz.-the
passage of the Rural Graded School
Act. The two sections of the act that
contain the requirements are as fol
S'ec. 2. Whmen any rural district In
South Carolina shall levy and collect
a sp~ecial school tax of not less than
four (4) mills, and when a school ini
such dlistrict employs two certifIed
teachers for a school term of not less
than six months, and w~hen such school
huas an1 enrollment of not fewer than
fIfty pupils and an average daily at
tendance for tihe session of not fewer
than tiirty pupils, and when such
school is taught in a comfortable andl
sanitary building provIdled with the
minImum equipment plrescribed by the
State Hoard of Education, and1( when
it uses a course of study and classifI
catIon approvedl by the State lloardl of
Education, it shall bue entitled to re
ceIve State aId under this Act to thme
amount of $200.00 per year.
Sec. 3. When any rural school (11s
trlct in South Carolina shall levy and
collect a special school tax of not less
than four- (.1) mills, and when such
school employs three or more certhiled
teachers for a school term of not
less than seven months, and when
such school has an annual enrollment
of not fewer than seventy-five pupils
and aln average daily attendance for
the session of not fewer than forty
pupils, and whmen such school is
taught in a comfortable and sanitary
building plrovided with the minimum
equipment prescribed by the State
Board of Education, and when it us
es a course of study and, classification
approved by the State Board of I~duca
tion, it shall be entitled to receive
State aid under this Act to the amount
of $300.00 per year,
There are only nine schools in our
county who received the aid this yea.
Next year there will be more, the
th~st ab.l ithe applications this
were paid will stifnulate othe'
meet the euirenmens for
