Hope TowN TALK and Louisiana
Democrat will putblish the fuliowiug
school information:
In reply to correspondents and
others interested, say: examinations
to be held in September, proximo, 1
are specially for those who have no
certificate of competency to teach
school from our Board of Eximiners,
and for all teachers holding a second
or third grate certificate who desire
to obtain a higher one.
Part of Sec. 44, Act 81, Session of i
Legislature 1888: "Whenever two
or more teachers apply for the same
position, or positions, a compitative 1
examination shall he held, and the I
position or positions shall be given to I
the most competent."
This part of the school law is
mandatory and compels School 1
Boards to give schools to teachers
uoldiug first gra le certificates in pre
terence to second and second in pre
ference to third.
It is the earnest desire of our
School Board, plainly a xpressed as a
unit, to continually try to improve
our public schools, to make them
better and better by every laudable
method iin our power, and recognize
the first step towards aecomplishitig
our object is to have the beat teach
ers we can get to take charge of
public schools.
It is to be hoped the day has passed
and is forever gone when schools will
be given to teanchers because they
need them for the money they re
ceive instead of merit honestly earned
in school work.
Public schoola are for the purpose
of making intelligent citizens of our
boys and girls and are establ:shed
for their use, their benefit; they be
long to them, and do not belong to
patrons, school officers or teachers
who have them in charge, to govern
guide and direct for the benefit of
those who attend.
No effort will be spared by our
School Board and self to improve our
schools, to make them so useful to
pupils; to elevate them to such a
high standard of excellence in their
work as to make them an honor to
our parish and citizens.
Hope to have the hearty co-opera
tiou of every teacher in our parish in
trying to better the present condition
of our schools.
Teachers holding first, second and
third grade certificates are requested
to meet me in Alexandria on Sept.
11th, prcx. as pubiished, to organize
