Teachers' Meeting.'
' At a meeting of the teachers of
Obion County last Saturday, the sub
ject of promoting pupils from the
eighth grade to the high school was
the chief point discussed. The opin
ion of practically all of the teachers
was that the pupils of the eighth
grade be promoted by examination
given next spring. These examina
tions will be uniform and all given
on the same days at the high school
nearest the pupil. The teachers of
the different schools where there are
eighth grade pupils will be expected
to accompaiy their pupils to these
places of examination and give them
encouragement. The subjects in
which the pupils will be examined
are: Spelling, reading, writing,
arithmetic, grammar, geography, U.
S. history. Satisfactory evidence
must be given that. tho pupls have
had the physiology of the sixth grade
and also the Tennessee history.
Another point di3cusaed and de
cided upon was that pupils cannot
go from one grade in the high school
to another without the certificate of
promotion of his previous teacher or
else take examination at the begin
ning of school.
