Improving Rural Schools
"Ways in Which Rural Schools
May be Improved."
(By Miss Mary T. Nance.]
The rural schools of South
Carolina have been greatly im
proved in recent years but there
is yet an enormous amount of
work to be done before the
schools in the country will com
pare at all favorably with the
town and city schools.
A large per cent of the popu
lation of our state is rural and
agricultural, therefore, if every
boy and girl is to be given an
equal chance for an education it
is very important that our peo
ple build up a good systei of
country schools. The tfficiency
of a country school depends
largely upon the effort put forth
in a rural community by its
trustees and teachers. If they
show that they are interested
and will take the leadership in
improving their schools they
will not fail to get cooperation
from patrons. I urge every
country teacher and trustee in
South Carolina to ask himself
the question: "What can I do to
make my school better?" Find
out how you can make it better
and go to work with a determi
nation to improve conditions.
Success will always attend an
earnest effort.
& During the recent session of
I the legislature a bill was passed
r appropriating $20,000 for thE
purpose of increasing the aver
age length of the school tern
and to improve the efficiency ol
L the public schools in this state
t The State Superintendent of Ed
ucation, Mr. J. E. Swearingen
will gladly send a copy of thi,
act together with regulations t<
any one who will write him fo:
e same. Every rural school shoul
a run longer than three or fou:
months so if yours doesn't rui
at least 100 days don't fail t<
take advantage of this law. I
provides that any school whos<
term is less than 100 days cai
secure $2.00 from the State Su
perintendent of Education fo:
every dollar that the patroni
e may raise.
SIf any school which pays $34
a month will raise $10 the stat'
will supply $20 and thus length
en the term by one month. 0
course, any greater amount rais
.ed by the school will 'secure
- correspondingly greater additioi
to the school term.
fThe State Board of Educatio1
~has recently set aside S2,000 o
the library fund to be used b:
the School Improvement Associ
ation for prizes. This amoun
was offered last year and 9
schools entered the contest. I
is estimated that $200,000 wort:
