IS - )l One of the greatest investments f. that any town or community has is is its schools, and of all subjects that need close investigation, te ,lose attention, it is that part of eo its moneyed outlay. L. Of course, for any business in stitution to be run successfully, ig and if there is a business institu. V. tion in the parish, it is the school, re it must have a concensus of opin e- ion, an agreement on all vital n. points irom the main-head to the d, minutest detail of that make-up. 1e First there must be an homo-. genity of action between the Supt. al and the Boards. Now, of course, s as the Parish Board is supposed to I C. be supreme in authority in the parish as a whole. Its relation to a n- the whole parish is similar to the State Supt. and the State Board ,t- to the whole state. The local iel board comes in and takes unto as itself such powers as the parish th board delegates to it, this being a c :y, verbal proposition, while in the ] ,y, case of the State Supt. and the .r- State Board to our board it is ira written in the statute form. Now, when there ceases to be a con tic certed action between these bod- I ?il, ies, a discord creeps in, there is 4 ig. going to be bad results and all ira will not be well. So with the Supt. and princi pal. When there arises a time 1 in the history of the school that es there is not a congenial under an. standing between these two school men bad results are sure to follow. Now, if this be true, is it not a fact the more so, if there is not that feeling of congenialty, ear nestness, implied confidence and respect from one to the other, be twcen the members of the faculty, success is a failure? Show me a faculty that works together in a pleasant, earnest and conscien tions way, and I will show you a r. school that is obtaining results, d. turning out boys and girls that will be equipped for higher learn for ing and development. bed Again, if you grant me these Sonfacts. anA you know that they are true, self-explanatory oni the face ROe ol themselves, will you not go a , t step further by agreeing that e there must be, under all circum led iso, stances, all hazards, a relation nce ship of the most pleasant nature between the teachers and the pa Strons? Yes, doubly the more so than that between the former. dt, In the first we are dealing be* E tween man and man, whose dis ' ppsitions and characters have Sbeen moulded in years gone by. But when we are dealing with ""youth we are forming from an Sundeveloped mass a moving, sct u ing imitating, thinking machine, whose life is to be made up from examples at home and at school. One of the greatest troubles we have today in the school room is that the patrons talk before the pupils about the short comings of the teachers. The main object of our schools is to make an educated citizenship, a moral upright ore ation from an undeveloped mass. The object is not to create, I am Sspeaking as as a whole, the bon I tons of the upper orust, but a man or a woman diagnostically speak ing. Yet if some good teacher comes to town to teach, did you . e er hear her discussed, and, too, b dore the children? Her age is I discussed, her dress is discussed and if she is good looking how artistically that is discussed. She is not here for lookse, but for moral stamina, moral uplift, a for the purpose of assisting you m. to continue what you have only begun-the moral alld intellectual dovelopment of your child. One of the pleasures to me in ttaohing school is the problem of dealing with that animal you call a boy. I wouldn't give a snap for a boy, if he wasn't a boy. I want him to be a real earnest in riinic boy. I love to watch him develop, unptfold himself, palmlike in his nature to me. Be mis chievous if he wishes to be, but when he gets into trouble confide in me as he would to his brother or father. When we can get our boys to the point where they will confide in us in their troubles, look us in the eye and come out with the whole truth, and nothing' but the truth, then we are teach. I ing them. One-half of the battle in the school room depends upon the * standing of the teacher in the a community in the community in Swhich he or she teaches. Nor, need I emphasize the fact that, i this standing does not apply to, , the school room entirely. When, _ the outer world sees our standing in the social world, when the fathers and mothers see where we stand, when they see our rat- I ing, using a financial term, they , will cause through these inter mediaries, the children, this in e dependent air of ours to be trans- mitted to the school room, which b fact will aid us in becoming mas. ters of the situation. Now, this mastery depends upon two things, learning and having power to control, and I wish to emphasize the fact that the lack e of learning is the lesser of the two evils. e Of course, the learning is a If necessary qualifioation in the pur. tf suit of teaching, but when the a other qualification is lacking in Sthe teacher it narrows the eduoa t, ional system down to one branch! n that of imparted information, and i - leaves out the moral side of the1 n youth, and if there ever was a monster who strides around in: r sheep's clothing, "a goodly apple p rotten to the core"-that monster is an educated, nicely dressed. s immoral pervert. He is the one d that has the most iufluence upon a the imbibing youth, he is the one that permeates the homes and t renders into an unhappy chaos , that which was once all sunshine u and happiness. y Fora school to do good and l efficient work in a comunity, it must be the center of at D traction. It must be the pleasaet f talk of the town between the pas. Il trone and pupils and school peo p ple. The children should be I taught that there are two funda. m- mentals to be acquired down n there, mnorals Arft and learuing 0 soond. You may reverse the the matter if you wish, I want my child taught morals first. One of the first requirements of a teacher in applying for a posi tion to teach school, is, "are you qualified and have you a certifi cate?" That is a good and proper question for any body of people to ask. But a community should go further than that and ask, "are you the right kinld of man or woman to take charg' of my boy or girl." The man who had spent much time and money and worry rearing his son up in the way he should go, was asked by his friends, "Is he worth that much?" "My boy is worth that much to me," was the answer. It makes a different proposition when it is your boy, or your girl that is to be reared. If I were a superintendent I wouldn't employ a teacher to work for any community that possessed the following qualifica. tions; a worldly nature, no love for the boys and girls, a distaste for the little fellow upon whom fortune had not smiled, a spiteful nature, and no disposition to try to create a feeling in that room that they were one big fiamily working for a great cause. There is a tendency on the part of the parents of today- to have the child hurried thru the High School in order to get him off to college. Why such a feeling of discon tent? Is it that the parents wish to break the family ties as early as possiblet This cannot be so, yet this on the face of it seems the motive. One of the most pitiful sights to be seen is a boy off from home unprepared for his work. He has no one to rely upon for suc cor and no one in whom he can intrust his secrets of distress. He falls behind in his work and there's a failure in life because he was sent from home too early in life before he had been prepared for college work. Patrons, if you have a boy up. on whom you have placed your wishes for success let him stay with you until he is prepared to leave you, then you will have a son that will do well and be satis fled and come out and be a credit to you and to his former teachers.
