A LETTER TO THE TEACHERS,
Trustees and Patrons of tlie Public '
Schools of Oeonee.
South Carolina stands at tho bot
j tom in education; she stands at tho j
! top in Illiteracy. What do our people j
i intend to do about it? How can we j
' best remedy this deplorable situa-;
j Practically all of Oconco's schools '.
' aro now lil operation, and we urge
. tho hearty co-operation of teachers. '
! trustees and patrons in making this
j the best year in the advancement of '
education ill Oconee's history.
Let the trustees employ their
teachers, pay them for their .services j
and insist thai the teachers teach
the children, net merely the lessons,
the parents have taught.
Why should we longer allow this ;
sad state of affairs to exist?
Can one imagine a more pitiful :
condition, from tho standpoint of I
education, than that of tho mother i
in the average home, working from i
" n. m. till 0 p. m., endeavoring to j
j leach her children by tho only moth- '
ods .she knows-methods employed !
ll ft eon or twenty years ago, and con- :
trary to those now in use? The mo-1
thor's attitude is indeed pralsewor- j
thy, but why not demand that our ,
children bo taught at school? Why ?
not take the work from the parents
?and place ? on those paid and pre- .
pareil lo do it ?
The merchant, the farmer, tho doc- :
tor--in fact, ;>ll professional mon and <
women work from eight to len
hours daily, and wo know that it is .
not unreasonable' to expect our teach-j
ors to work six hours each day, recess '
hours not included.
The single daily session had us
origin in the cities of the North, and I
now the North realizes its mistake, !
I and is fast changing back to tho don- j
I hie dally session. And that the South,
too, must do likewise, ii the best re- I
suits are to be obtained, is now con
ceded by our best educators.
We are grateful to (Ind that our
I teachers are willing to do the six
j hours' work if the trustees so desire.
This innovation will, no doubt,
meet with some opposition, hut the
County Hoard of Education of Oeonee
county insists that it be done in our
county, and surely we ought to have
enough people interested in the edu
cation of our children to put the sys
tem to work without any further dis
cussion of the matter.
