No Di!Yerance in Tuition.
It is an established usage that
children in the schools in which tu
iti(o is charged shall pay according
t > the grade in which they are placed.
The highst grade usually pays three
t!ll anI(d sometimes four times as
nmehii as the lowest. This custom
has beei handed down from genera
tion to generation. This. however.
does not show that it is right. The
t"aching of the little ones is worth
nearly as much. if not as much. as
those more advanced. Ask any
teacher. endeavoring to do his whole
duty to every child committed to his
care, which he would rather teach.
the little ones or the larger ones, and.
among men especially. nine times out
of ten, the latter we would find to be
preferred. What is the reason of
this ' It is plain enough. They are
less trouile. Why th(ni charge more
for doing that which gives us the
least real work ? The States appro
priate money for the education of
children between certain ages, and
make tio distinction on account of
age. Our State does not say to the
boards of trustees: You must give
more for the advanced children than
for those just beginning. No, she
makes no distinction on account of
age or color. Why then should the
pay school make a difference ? Is it
because the older children are of
more importance? Is it because
they need some peculiar training not
suited to the child in the lower grade?
If it is. we would be glad to know in
what it consists. Some may claim
that it requires more h iyly educated
,uen to instruct the advanced pupils
than those not so far advanced. Men
who have given their time and mo
ny to becoine eminently qualified to
adorn the profession they are to fol
low. It would be humiliating to ask
those great men to stoop so lw' as to
take the child of eight years and lead
him gently up the rugged hill of
learning. These educated men would
rather leave the profession than do
such a condescending work. They are
willing, or at least appear to be, to sit
in the professor's chair in the higher
institutions and for 3, 4 or perhaps 5
hours in a day, lecture to the ad
vanccd students on the great truths
of science. These adcanced students
must p,aya great deal for the privi
lege of hearing the true solution of
such iaysterious~ things, which often
have a tendency to unfit rather than
fit them for intelligent citizenship.
Some one will say that we have
left the subject we started with, and
are making-war upon the higher in
stitutions. and claim that they teach
those things which might be easily
dispensed with. Not so, however.
We are simp)ly trying to show that
the difierence in tuition, and the er
roneous idea in regard to the younger
p)upils, drive the most efficient work.
ers into the higher institutions of
learning, and leave the field in which
they can .do the most good, vacant.
Suppose that Newberry County had
25 or :30 teachers as thoroughly pre
prdas the p)rofessors in our col
leges. what a great change there
would be within the next ten years.
As long, however, as the education
of the little ones is considered of
suchi little worth, and as long as the
ra: reru'is in the teachers' ranks
are thought competent to instruct
them, we will always be behind.
Let the time come, however, when
every child shall be considered of
equal imp)ortance and worthy of
equal attendaace. and we will find
that our educational p)rospects will
We will find that the educated
men and women of the country will
seek Tositions in our common schools
because they will know that with a
reasonable tuition. all scholars pay
inig the same, they can earn a comn
It is wrong, it is dangerous to
teach the p)eople of a country that
the training of their little ones is of
little importance. and can be entrust
ed to any one who has joined the
teachers' raniks. For all grades effi
cienit and skillful instruction is no
eessary. and all should pay the same.
