I I his i,t:e:t.on beeot:ie st:ll more vital whin we consider the further faot that about !'S per cent of the children now growing lip m the com munity will receive all the education they, will gain, whether for making a lite or for making a living, from their community school. ! The foundation of a groniiiK and really sen leeulde whool. How wel it cr.n grow and meet the demands of the children is determined by two : things: 1 1 1 The amount of the com iaiinit's taxable wealth, and t2) the size of the communit's population. iis intelligence, prosressiveiuss, and i stability. Hroadly sneaking, there is a cloe relation between the amount ! (if the community's taxable wealth land the size of the school district, and a fairly close relation between t:u number of people and the ceo grnpiiic ntt'a of the community. Con sequently, if we increase the size of Mir school district we increase the .mount of the community's wealth. If v.e extend the bemmktries of the school district, we increase the size :.i'. stability of the connmniliy's pop ulation; we increase the value of the coiimiiinliy's coo n rut !ve effort In the buildii.g up of a school that will more aiiei!ialelv meet the need of the children. The One-Tciieher School. In North Carolina the average size of li'e community wiih the une-leach- cr school is approximately nine square miles, lint It must appear clear that in t e tivoivge rur:l community au ate.i of n ne square miles means r .r.ratively a i-mall and mluratary pop Nation, means a small pit'ount of tux able vi;lth. mid this small amount of taa'.;le wealth means inevitably Miiall s?brtol fund. eve;i though ever; man i:i the comtuuniiy cheerfully ia? a local tax up to the full limit of the law; and it musi also r.ppear clear tint this small school f-llid of this s:.-;;!l coinmunity rt-mains small even wiieit to its local tax is added irs just appropriation from both the countv and the Mate, Inevllj'.Me coiise(uenccs of n snml! a lift of luxation: ill In-ufticient school fund to fl auce an efficient school, i 2 i r'reouently an unai'ractive. nil comfortable , mid an inadequately i'iiped school building. C. i ?mall school site, from one- half to three acres. . i. f i....t.. 1 1 ) V. tniuifi: tti ncij term. 1 51 Cemparatlvely low salary for the teacher. 1 6l Creiiuent change of teacher? (?) The community serves only as .1 trainiiiK ground lor teachers for 'lifter and more progressive com munities in the county. 18) Kieat;ently young. Inexpert e:ced, untrained, ar.d incapable teachers. iS ) One teacher alone has to do all the ttachinc-leeching from five to seven evade each day, having from twtnty-fHe to thirty-live daily classes. (10) Less than twelve minutes for :he iirtual tenrhir.2 of each class. til) Approximately 80 per cent of ihp in iiii'n school dav spent at his " . . . i l.. Jl s.at with his worn innaeuuaiei.v ui reeled or supervised by the teacher, 12) About oue-slxtn only or tne seven years of the pupil s elementary school" period spent In direct contact with his teacher on recitation. MS i Aimroxlniate v five-sixths of the pupil's seven years in the ele mentary school Is spent at his seat with his work undirected and unsu pervised by his teacher. 11) By the nature or tne situa tion the establishment of any vital relation between the work of the school and the home life of the pupil through the successful teaching of ag riculture, manual training. cooKing. and sewing becomes well-nigh im possible. (IS) High school instruction is Impracticable. n fit Efficient supervision by the county superintendent Is Impossible. From the reports of iouneen repre sentative county superintendents, In ID to. the total average amount oi time spent in each school during the entire year. If the time spent In visit ing schools had been equally distrib uted among all the schools of the county, would have been 1 hour and 54 minutes. ith this type oi scnooi as the prevailing type In the county, the hope of really efficient supervis ion bv the county superintendent can not be rationally expectea. (17) The per capita cost of instruc tion Is exceedingly high. In thirty rar.reaentatlve counties In the state. In 1910. the average monthly cost of teaching per pupil in all schools hav ing from 1 to JO pupils In daily t-ter-dance was 12.07, against $1,333 n.r month oer unil In daily attend ance In the elementary department of sixteen representative city schools of the State. Inevitable coeuenre arising from mi Niiali a unit of piukitiori: (II School too small to vitalize the population. Population too small to viic'ize the school. (2 Frequently ' efficient school committee unavailable. t3 Population, like the teachers, migratory, because -of econon lc con ditions and the tenant class. M School population smell. Per cent of school population f nrolled fre quently comparative lew. Per cent of school enrollment in dally attend ance comparatively low. (5 Per cent of school population completing the couu::on svhool hraii chei and entering high school com paratively low. 1 6) Nui:iler c-f pupils hi each trade, too small to generate whole some rivalry and friendly competition in class-room work. til Inadequate opportunities for team work, for social co-operation In literary contests or upon the play ground. (8) School spirit fetble. (HI Ambit ions country boys and girls anxious to get away from It all and go to the city to live. (101 Difficult to keep an Intelli gent tenant class. They are looking for communities with larger schools. taught by capable teachers, that their children may have a fair chance in life. 1 11 The one-teacher si hcol is not meeting, nor can it be made to meet. the needs of country children.
