a Card from Superintendent Wafkins.
The Laurens Graded School has
opened with tho largest attendance
that it has ever had. The teachers are
competent, faithful and earnest in
their work. Tho pupils arc bright,
and as a rule studious and well be
haved. These things being true, why
should not the school do as good work
as the best schools In the State, or at
1 n^t as the average school? We think
that it does. So far as we know, no
pupil has finished the Ninth Grade and
failed to enter the Freshman Class of
any College. The fact is nearly every
College In tho State will receive into
the Freshman class without examina
tions pupils who have finished the
Ninth Crude. No puplb who have
finished our Ninth tirade and entered
College have failed to stand high in
their classes, most of them standing at
or near the head of their class.
If pupils who finish the Ninth Grade
can enter tho Freshman class in Col
lege, why can not those who finish the
Tenth tirade enter the Sophomore
The 10th Grade is a review Grade
and out Ut Je work is done in the 10th
Grado in au -ance of what has been
done in the 7th, *th and 0th Grades. Tt
has been a question with the Trustees
and the Superintendent whether this
review course or an advanced course
would he better, but as most pupils
who attend College go from the 0th
Crude we run the review course to
more thoroughly prepare for the du
ties of life pupils who cannot go to
College. Besides those finish the 10th
Grado work are better prepared for
College, because of this review. As
stated above we believe the work in
the 1.aureus Graded Schools will com
pare favorably with the work done in
other Graded Schools of the State, but
we believe with proper co-operation
between patrons and teachers better
work can be done.
There are rcvoral reasons why tho
schools are not accomplishing the best
The first that I will mention and per
haps the llrst in importance is the de
sire on the part of parents to have
then* children advanced too rapidly.-?
The teachers desire the pupils to ad
vance rapidly and the Superintendent
desires it. When tho parent comes
with an earnest request that the child
be put forward and promises faithfully
that the child shall do the work, we
too often yield and allow children to
undertake work for which they are
not prepared. What is the result? The
child falls behind, becomes discour
aged, loses interest, is inattentive,
gets into mischief and tho work of tho
whole Grade is retarded .
In tho next place some who are pre
pared for the work at tho bediming of
the session spend their afternoons in
idleness, are absent from school or in
some way get behind their classes and
are soon as much hindrance to their
classes as those who have been pro
moted unprepared. A servant that
would lose a day or two every week
and spend a good portion of his tlmo
strolling about the streets would be re
garded as utterly Incompetent, but
some fathers and mothers seem to think
that thoir children can miss days from
school, run about the streets in the af
ternoons and still do school work. Let me
say with all earnestness that going to
school is a business, an important busi
ness, tho chief and almost only bust*
ness of mod children. I know that
children need recreation; 1 know they
have a right to their frolic and fun and
1 would not put one unneessary re
straint upon them,but if they are ever
to become true men and women much
restraint and guidance is necessary.
