The County High School and Its Relation to the Present Educational System of Kansas. - Ulead before the Teachers associa tion, March 2;, 1899, by Mrs. Jessie I Taylor. I'KOGKKSS OF EDUCATION ON MANKIND. Education is the powerful factor which has wrought the change be tween primeval man, whose life work was hunting the wild beasts, and war ring against other barbarians, whose highest enjoyment was eating and drinking, and whose code of ethics was brute force and the law of might, and the civilization, morality and re linemen t of to-day. PROGRESS OF EDUCATION ON GOVERN MENTS. In the progress of governments, from the time of the average chief, whose undisciplined will controls the life and liberty of his wild followers. to the development of a government like our own, whose power rests upon the will of the majority, and the peaceable submission of the minority, we can see the accumulated results of uges of education. NEED OF EDUCATION IN KANSAS Kansas, mindful of all this, with wise economy, provide? for education of her yoiit h'in order that thev mar be nitea lor tne duties, the priv leges, and the responsibilities of crti- eeiisliip; thus benefitting mankind, ana increasing tliw sum total of h.u man happiness. EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IN KANSAS. The educational system of the state consists of the district schools, grad- ea scnoois, iiign schools, county high schools, Normal school at Emporia Agricultural college at Manhattan, huh ftate university at J.awrence HOW EMPOWERED. The state constitution declares that the Legislature shall encourage the promotion of intellectual, moral, Bcieniinc. and agricultural improve ment by establishing a uniform svs tern of common schools, and school , of a higher grade, embracing normal, preparatory, collegiate and university departments. HOW MAINTAINED. Realizing the encouraging power of money tne constitution further states that sections lti and .$ in each town hip or public land, shall be set apart ior sciiooi purposes; also all money paid as exemption from military dutv. estates of persons dying without heir or will, the proceeds of a certain class of tines, and other minor incomes tshall form a perpetual school fund for the support of common schools. The highest institutions of learning be . fore mentioned, are endowed with large land grants, and also receive heavy appropriations from the state legislatu re. INTENT. With a school system so definitely arranged, and so liberally endowed, ft is easy to see that our early states man intended to place a free higher education within the reach of every boy and girl in the state. Hut no mind, however great, can foresee all the results of an experiment, or judge fully of the practical workings of an untried law. Thoir great mistake lies in the abrupt break between the , common schools and the higher insti tutions. Following this line of thought, I cannot do better than qnote directly from the !Ninth Hien nial report of the State Superintend ent of Public Instruction, as follows: To any one familiar with the work ings of the present school system, no argument need be advanced, to dis close the fact that, comparatively speaking, only a very fewof the youth of our state ever reach the coveted Koal of a higher- education. There is a break between the work of the com mon schools and that of the higher institutions, too great to be bridged, even by the greatest industry on the part of the student, and the aspirant L ior more learning nnds himseir obliged to turn from tiie free school to the fee system ; to p-iy tuition for preparatory work. But "few counties have within their limits towns large -enough to support high schools, and where they do exist as departments of graded schools, it is a well known fact that they are usually taxed to their utmost capacity to provide for their rasidend pupils; thus being obliged to refuse to admit dozens of appli cants, eager to prepare themselves for higher schools, and willing to pav the "tuition fee which isoften high enough to become an important item of expense.- . - - . NO HIOI1 SCHOOL AN INJUSTICE TO FARMERS. It is a fact which should be strong--ly impressed upon the farmers that although they constitute a great ma jority of the population of the state. and are its greatest wealth producers, i ineir sons ana naugnters have no di rect , means of making connection With the university. The couutry districts have no high school privi-. leges of their own. The farmer' child who graduates from the district school is not prepared to enter any of the state institutions, and for him, ir hampered by lack of means, our boasted free school system is at an end. The farmer's child has the same right to a free higher education as has the child f the townsman. The university is the peoples" highest free school, and the great majority of the peoples children should not be de prived of its privileges for lack of necessary preparatory work. It is the duty of the state to place a free higher education within the reach of every one of her citizens, no matter how'liumbly born. If the question, 'What is the relation of the county high school to-the presenteducational system of Kansas" be put to the in telligent farmer, what may we expect his answer to be? The county high school is a necessity. It will supply the missing educational link. It will prove a blessing to hundreds-of young men and women, who, from lack of means, would never have even aspir ed to any higher intellectual training than is atrorded by the district schools. On the part of the state it is a duty a simple act of justice to provide it. In support of niv proposition that this is a question that concerns the farmer, over and above all others, I will quote i"rom Chancellor Snow's re port to the Hoard of Regents, and al so from the report of the president of Manhattan to the Hoard of Regents, Chancellor Snow says that a list of the occupations followed by the par ents of the present enrollment of students shows 14 per cent more far mers than any other calling ; or more young men and women given a college education by farmer parents than by all the merchants, artisans, laborers, bankers and capitalists of the whole state. At Manhattan the per cent is even greater as farmers, stock-raisers and horticulturists classed together, furnish 3f4 out of a total representa tion of S.'tO. All other occupations combined furnish' the remaining 176. At Emporia out of an enrollment of 878 over five-eighth are from the farm. RELATION OF SENSIBLE ECONOMY. To the farmers, then, and to all others of the rural population, the county high school stands in the re lation, not only of a necessity, but also of a sensible economy. There cm be little question that the ex pense bourne by these farmers in giv ing their children preparatory work after they have entered Manhattan or such schools as are found at Sa'ina, Great Rend or Stockton and many other cities of about that size, would m-iintain a countv high school in half the counties of the state. In our own county, a conservative estimate places the cost or maintaining a countv high school at one or two mills of school tax, or from 30 to 50 cents on a quar ter section of land. PItOF. WILL S ESTIMATE OF COUNTY i HIGH SCHOOLS. As Manhattan is the least expensive of the state schools; more of my con clusions will be drawn from references to that than to either of the others. I anticipate that so:i:e may differ from me on my next claim for the county high school. I believe that a county high school would do better preparatory work than is done at Manhattan. It would do just as good work as is done at Salina, Great Ilend, etc., at much less expense. This con clusion is based on President Will's report of 1893-94 to the Hoard of Re gents. I quote one paragraph and a part of another word for word. I he faculty now numbers twenty-four per sons. Pr special occasions, it has been at times necessary to use -.advanced students, especially graduates. to aid in the instruction of irregulnr classes provided for students over 18 years of age not qualified for the course, lit such classes we usually nave six each term, three or four of which are taught by temporary sup ply. These special teachers have been chosen lor ability, una have been successful in maintaining good work. From page 127 of the same report I quote a part of a paragraph. If every county Could establish a coun ty high school, -with satisfactory courses in English, mathematics, drawing and the elements of science n botany, physiology, and natural Dhilosophv, the more general courses in sciences arid their application given at this institution could accomplish more. Such a high school, adapted to the needs of every day life would be a blessing to country communities." Now. if after much' sacrifice and scheming, I ever succeed in accumu lating enough of this world s good? to send my children to Manhattan col lege, I do not want them taught by any other student. 1 want them taught by the faculty, as they should be. "Three or four of these irregular classes are taught by temporary sup ply." t?o says resident Will. 1 do not want my pupils in those irregular classes, for anybody knows that teach ers who are assigned temporarily, hap-hazard, can not do as well for a class as a teacher who stays by them month after month and term after term. - - HISTORY OF COUNTY HIGH SCHOOLS IX THE STATE. The number of accredited high schools in the state -is 102. Of ac credited academys 16. Their course of study articulates closely with the freshman crass so that graduates from these schools are admitted to the university without entrance ex amination.. Says Chancellor hnow: . Jt is grati fying to note that these schools, are. i the main, doing excellent work. Certain it is that the quality of certi ficated students in our freshman class s suoerior to that under the old rule. when every candidate for admission was required to pass an entrance ex amination. Our experience has shown that the responsibility of certifying to the qualifications of candidates for admission to the university is not lightly esteemed by high school anil academy principals- Few principals wish to bring discredit Uxn their own judgment and the work of their school." - . . rhere are three county high schools j in . the state situated iu Dickinson. Atchinson. and Labette counties. Their diplomas admit to any of the state institutions, and their work is included in the above favorable com ment. The.-Dickinson high school, the oldest of the' three, is a decided success. The expenses of the school ova ti st 1 . .. .1 1 av 1 .1 l . ZwZZrWl e hTr S . oeeu made ror current expenses for a year is li mills. It has had a most favorable effect on the district schools Over one-fifth of the teach ers of the county al ready . come from those educated in the" county high school, and it is gladly sustained by the people of the whole county. The other two schools furnish favorable, though briefer, reports. MORAL RELATION. One other thought in regard to the county high school. It bears, not so directly on its relation to the present educational system, as on its relation to humanity. It certainly deserves mention in this connection. I refer to the fact that the great majority of thebovs and girls who graduate from the common schools are by no means old enough to resume the responsibili ty of going away from home", and hav ing noone whom they must obey out of school hours. Xo matter how bright they may be in their books, they have far too little sense, or ex perience, or worldly wisdom, or what ever you choose to call it to be trusted with themselves. Youth has not the power to resist temptation that comes to maturer years. With the restraints of home life exchanged for the freedom of the club boarding house, the lack of any stated talks aside from their books, renders the danger of the influence of bad com panionship' too great to be risked. They are too young to be trusted with much liberty. With a county high school at every county seat our young people can be kept under home influ ences two or three years longer. Who is for seeing enough to estimate the benefits. Briefly -reviewed, then, the county high school stands in relation to the present educational system, and to every one, as a necessity, as a wise economy, as a possibility, as a tested experi ment and a proven success, as a powerful factor of culture, and by the removal of temptation- from the path of the unwary, as a strengthener and promoter of public morality. Remarkable Rescue. Mrs. Michael Curtain, Plainville, 111., makes the statement, that she caught cold, which settled on her lungs; she was treated for a month by her family physician, but grew worse. 11 told her she was a hope less victim of consumption and that no medicine could cure her. Her druggist suggested Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption; . she bought a bottle aiid to her delight found herself benefitted from first dose. She cont inued its use and after taking six bottles, found herself sound and well; now does her own house work, and is as well as she ever was.
