PARENTS AND THE SCHOOLS.
Now that the schools, in city, town

proper to urge upon parent to take an
interest in the school work of their
Mr. Charles Petty,the scholarly edi?
te cf the Carolina Spartan,. writes
very entertainingly and forcibly upon
this subject in the last issue of his
paper. He says:
The teacher's duty is to assist the
home training children. Too many pa?
ds think that they are relieved from
responsibility when their childen
start to school. Here are some things
expected of parents:
They should get their children ready
so as to be at the school room on time.
Clothing and person should be clean.
Children shoild not loiter on the
streets and stand around the stores.
Teach them to go home as soon as dis?
Encourage no tale-telling.. Do not
find fault with teachers in the pres?

your appreciation by telling her that

work. At the foundation of this de?
partment is politeness. That is neg?
lected in some families.. That has to
"be taught st home.' Did you ever visit
a family, the children of which were
so noisy and self assertive that it was
a relief to get away? If children are
not taught genuine politeness, respect
for elders, and good behavior in pub

their children's studies, in the teach
