Report on Inspection of Schools
SL Charles Parish
By C. J. Brown
(Continued from last issue)
Luling: A number of double pa
tent desks have been added to the
equipment of this school since the
iast inspection; otherwise there
has been no change of consequense
The entire plant is antiquated and
inferior, although kept clean and
neat. We were surprised to find
only twen'y-six of the fifty-one
enrolled present, {«presenting sev
en grades in charged of two teach
ers. Colds amounting to an epi
demic was stated as the cause of the
absences. We wer# impressed with
the interest and seal manifested
by the teachers but were disap
pointed with gthe results of the
tests made in third grade reading
and a group of pupds in fourth,
fifth, and Kftb.frqta anVhpneiiç.
Pupils d d not show a mastery of
the processes in these subjects
such as should have b^-en gained
by pupils of their grades. We are
inclined to think that responsibili
ty for this condition does not rest
primarly with ihe teachers in
charge but m.»y better be attribut
ed to i'regular attendance and the
crowded and unsatisf 'Ctory work
ing conditions. Some recommanda
tions were |made relative to the
work in reading and elementary
arithmetic with a view to remedy
lug the weakness found there
Hahnvdle* The building and other
physical conditions are on a par
with those at Luling and Des Al
lemands, except that the 'house is
oeing whitewashed. There are also
being added some patent desks, a
good library, shades, a globe and
some maps, All ihe improvements
are being paid for by funds raised
at entertainments in charge of the
teachers. While they are certaimy
to be commended for^their spirit
and success, yet it is unfortunate
.hat a school must depend upon
such affairs for practically all of
'ts essentials At the time of our
visit teachers and pupils were work
ing-out-of-doors waiting for the
whitewashed to be done. We gave
a brief test in atrihmettc to the
ffith grade and found them to be
quite up to average in their skill
in addition .and multiplication.
The teachers were using good me
thods in the work ^witnessed and
deeply interested in their school.
The programs conformed to requi
rement except that there was no
diretion of the plays and games of
the childt en. Forty-one of the
forty tour enrolled in seven grades
were present. This attendance was
in strong contrast to that at some
osher shool
