Training Schools at
Johnson and Castleton
At a meeting of the State" Board- of
Education at Lake Willouehby, it was
voted to approve tho establishment of
union teacher-training classes at
Johnson and Castleton.
Final arrangements have been
made with the locai school boards,
and these classes will be opened ear
ly in Soptember. It is the intention
of the State board to utilize, in con
nection with these training classes,
the fine equipment of the normal
schools in each of the towns whera
they are to be locateci. Each class
will fili an urgent need for teacher
training in a territory unserVed by
any other institution of this kind.
It is hoped that, on account of the
present scarcity of teachers in this
state, and the unusually high salaries
which tho profession now commands,
girls who have completed at least
three years of high school will be
eagfii1 to avail themselves of tho opportunità-
offered by these training
classes.
