To Tho lion Mayor anil City Council of the
Your committeo on public frco
sohools to whom was referred ocrtain
matters mentioned orally in opon
council at a regular meeting of tho
council on Thursday ovenmg Jan. 21st
would respoctfully report that a meet
ing of tho committeo was held on
Friday aftornoon Jan. 22nd, at the
contral school buildiDg at 3:30. That
besides tho oommittee thero were
present Aldermen Payno and Willig
also tho superintendent, tho princi
pals of all the sohools and four other
citizens. As tuoro were no writton
charges made against any one, tho
committee together with all present
hold a frco discussion of such matters
as were montioncd in the oouneil and
suoh othe.r matters as any ono present
desired to montion, and this roport
will briefly refer to eaoh thing dis
ousacd. 1-t. As to children being kept
outsido of tho house on arrival in cold
and severo weather. Tho rule is that
the teaohcrs shall bo at tho school
room twenty minutes, and the prin
cipals thirty minutes, bofore the time
to opon and tho practioo has been to
address a noto to tho parents rcquost
iug them to lot tho childron start
from home at suoh timo as will allow
amplo timo to re a oh tho sohool house
boforo tho sohool opens and yet not
so early as to roaob sohool boforo the
toaoher or principal arrives; this gives
a margin of thirty minutes to cover
differences of time pieces and distances
tho object being that the children
shall not collect before tho teacher ar
rives, so that thero shall bo as short
an intorval as practicable for tho child
to be out of sight of both toucher and
Cn this rule eaoh prinoipal stated
that every child was expected to come
into tho houso immediately on arrival
and that if any child at any time had
boon bept out of doors against its will
in inclement weather such iant was
unknown to them.
2nd. As to tho statement that chil
dren wero required to eat their dinner
or lunch out of doors in bad weather,
tho rule has been at the central school
torequiro the pupils to eat within the
building in separate rooms, eaoh room
being presided over by a toachor, or
in tho hall, and whenever this rulo
has beon varied it has boon dono in
pleasant weather and upon tho request
of tho pupils thomselves. As to the
other schools each prinoipal stated that
tho children were allowed to eat in the
houso and if anyone ate outsido in
bad weather it was not with the con-
Bont or knowledgo of the principal
and they heard of no suoh case.
3rd. As to excuses botng referred
from teachers to principals, this mat
ter was not fully disousscd owing to
the lateness of the hour but tho com
mitteo understands the rulo to bo that
any written exouso signed by the par-
ont is accepted without requiring a
statement of tho reasons for
absence, but that owing to
tho large percentage of
absentees and consequent falling off
in tho average oi general attendance
tho rulo has been adopted by somo of
tho principals to inquiro of tho pupils
after dismission as to tho cause of
absence and detention, so as to got at
tho facts as far as praotioable in ardor
to remedy tho detect not in any sonso
to punish the ohild or to reflect on the
parents. It is impossible to attend
to this during sohool hours and when
many exouses are sent it somotimes
takes fifteen or twonty minutes after
dismissal, and we beliovo that tho do
tention has novor execodod this.
4th. Tho matter of one session per
day instead of two sessions was not
discussed at this meeting, and the
committee aro not unanimous on the
prosont plan, but it was adopted on
the writton consent of moro than
eighty per cent, of the patrons of tho
sohool and thoro are many good rea
sons in support of it. Tho number
ot hours occupied in teaohing is tho
same under either plan, and tho
amount of work for toachor and pupil
the same. It investigation and dis
oussion show that two sessions aro
better the change can be made.

Thero aro many difficulties arising
in tho oonduot ;of tho public sohools
which aro ohargeable, mainly, to tho
system and not to any individual.
Wo do not beliovo the superintendent
and principals and teachers aro per
fect or above criticism, but take
pleasure in saying that wo have found
in all parties concerned an earnest
desire and effort to discharge con
scientiously tho difficult and delicate
duties devolving upon thorn and be
liovo that the general oonduot and
management of the sohools will bear
favorable comparison with any public
schools known to us. There will neo
ossarily exist a deficiency in the
methods and plans of individuals
where so large a number are employed
but we holicvo that a percentage of
this olass has boon reduced almost to
a minimum but ohccrfully invite full
investigation and fair and reasonablo
criticism but do not expect over to
reach a standard that will be perfect
ly satisfactory to all.
