The Blight (?) Side of Teaching.
Editor of Hews :
In last week's News the article on
school teachers, by Pen Dragon, attrac
ted my attention, also the remarks by
Thx News on the same subject. The
News requests some one to show the
dark side. But is it not a pity to spoil
so attractive a picture by even speaking
of the dark side ? For, as The News
Tory truly says, these articles, ' flowery
ma they are, do not fully present the
bright Bide of teaching, though I will
Tenture to say some teachers never be
fore knew what an enviable position
they hold. For example,. The News
peaks of the teachers as working 180
or 200 days in the year. Now, nearly
all the teachers that I know, work only
from 150 to 180 days in the year. In
most towns the school year is divided
into three terms, a vacation succeeding
each term. ,The fact that these compul
sory vacations are taken at the teachers
own expense gives peculiar zest to the
enjoyment of them. What an easy time
these teachers have ! How they must
look down from superior heights on
merchants, clerks and doctors, who are
compelled to earn and receive full ' pay
for every month in the year. How they
pity the editors and writers who can
work in July as in January. .-
Daring the hot summer months the
teachers can rest, by paying their board
out of a munificent salary, a privilege
which is of course denied to other less
favored laborers. Yet I have heard of
gentlemen, high school teachers, so.
forgetful of their privileges as to " toil
in the hay-field in the scorching sun"
with farm laborers, and actually seem
glad of the chance to earn wages during
the long vacation. In .most of the
country schools, teachers are paid from
SI 50 to $200 per year. Out of this
they must pay board at the rate of $12
per month. No wonder The News
v thinks them better paid than almost
any class. Common sense tells us they
cannot earn this by teaching from
twenty-five to forty scholars a few hours
in the day. The extra hours, often long
weary ones, spent on different lessons
for the morrow, do not,- of course,
count. As to the noon hour, during
which even the farm laborer expects to
rest, the school teacher must spend
much of it in the pleasing pastime of
sweeping the dusty . school-room, i
operation which must be repeated
after four o'clock if the room is to pre
sent an . appearance of anything like
cleanliness. In some schools the chil
dren assist the teacher in this, but eare
ful mothers very properly objsct to
having the dainty aprons and spotless
ruffles of the little ones spoiled.
It is also very pleasant for teachers
to know that of all workers they are the
only ones to whom a legal holiday is
grudged. The committee, vainly try
ing to please everybody, do the best
they can to dodge the holidays, by
beginning' too late' for Labor day, and
by closing too early for. Thanksgiving.
Washington's birthday, and Fourth of
July. But it is impossible to avoid
them all, or to avoid the consequent
faultfindings. As for Agricultural fairs,
when school is closed for the accommo
dation of the patrons, 'not the teachers,
a pari of the time is always made up by
teaching Saturdays.. But the teacher
has the satisfaction of knowing that
although she gives her time, very few
of the children will come to school on
Saturday.,. She- can. look forward with
delightful anticipation to the conse
quent confusion in classes Monday.'
These things afford a pleasing variation,
if there- is any danger of monotony.
No, truly, . Oh News, you have not
described half the beauties of teaching !
From what L have said it can be seen
that teaohers, if not well watched, will
become an - indolent and purse-proud
class. - Therefore, I propose that they
be compelled to keep the school-house
in repair and also pay for the wood, in
addition to keeping the school-room
clean' and lighting the fires.
