Excellent Record Of Attendance j
In Earlington Graded And y
Hieh School.
: r
Rouu1nr monthly meeting of
the Enrliugtou School Board was
held Saturday night, with ex
cellent reports from the schoolN .
Perhaps the most encouraging
feature of the situation uow is- '
the fact that attendance for Jan
uary was about fifteen, percent ,
better than for January a year
ago. This reflects strongly tho,
good work doue by the faculty, J
tho School Board and the press
toward agitating nnd enforcing
Kentucky's new compulsory at
tendance law and the child labor
law. The compulsory attendance
law puts heavy pennltiefe upon
all parents who do not keep their ,
children continuously in somo
school between the ages of seven
and twelve. The child labor law,
with strict penalties, prohibits
the employment in auy gainful,
pursuit of auy child under tho
age of fourteen nnd provides
.that no child under sixteen may
be employed without first obtain
ing a certificate based ou a re
quired record iu school work.
The law also puts penalties upon
all teachers aud school boards for
neglect of their duties as pre
scribed in the act. The school
authorities have co-operated dili
gently in the effort to get all
children into either the public oc
parochial school and their efforts
have generally been mot in a
helpful and appreciative way by
the pareuts of the district.
The conditions as to attend
ance caunot be said to be entire
ly ideal, but splendid work along
this line has been accomplished
with thei least possible friction
nud the authorities continue to
hope that complete compliance
with this important law may be
had without the necessity of any
prosecutions. It is generally.
understood, however, that, if it
should become necessary, prose
cutions will be instituted to com
pel attendance of nil children,
