Our School System.
Jhc public nhool s\stem of our
Stale is receiving' vigorous assaults
'from able pens aind'wiee lionds. One
of the boldest attacks has lately liccii
'made by forl foi?f. Ihjtct, be fore the
/VeaeheiV Assoclat'on of Abbeville
County. Wo like this ppiiit of .at-1
'.tacking "without je^ir,' favor or allec
lion" whatever .we consiiier defective
'in the administration of i.slice in out
State. Jt is I lie very best course l<>
get at the bottom of matters, am'
c leanse them of all impuiilies and er
rors. Of eourse ssm can't add much
10 Vihul has already hi en said, but
we Will have our say any way.
We propose to poiul out one or two
prominent d< feels in pur.system in
'addition tu those already presented
on this subject. Without any hesita
tion, wo pronounce the system in our
'State ex'ieinoly defective ; and unless J
it 5>e granted thai a helerogi neons
compcliml may have a name indica
tive neither of its qualities, nor the
'relation of its parts, i\c think it very
'doubtful whether Hie plan of educa
tion pursued in South Carolina is
worthy I he honorable title of us\s
tern." It's u misnomer, but, for
want of a more appropriate term, w.
will give it the undrseivcd appella
tion.
The fnsl and one of the greatest de
fects that can arrest our at'cnlion,
and of which many of our people are
convinced, is the incompeleney ol
^teachers. This is one of the soiest
evils inflicted on the cause of popular
education. A large proportion of
those employed as instructors arc not
qualified either by head or heart, lot
ho difficult, so responsible a charge.
'J hey do not possess those rare intel
lectual and moral qualifications,
' which only can enable them faithfully
and honorably to (ill the high voca
' tion of educating those into whose
1 hands the dearest interests of our
'country will soon be intrusted.
We will mention other defects in
Our next issue, and we shall con.cut
' oursclf nt present by enquiring the
cause of this great evil of the incotn
' petency pf teachers, for knowing the
?cause, we pan provide a remedy.
? W^enejiafrwe nhd the cause? Docs
it exist )p tjie teachers or the employ
*craf We bcleive in both. Parents
generally have not a correct notion
*bf nature and importance of the
of lice the teacher discharges, nor of
the requisite qualifications for it.
'Some, guided bv the policy of accom
plislung the greatest good with the
least expense, have filled their school
houses with ignoramuses, who have
disappointed their employers, injur
*ed the youth and disgraced them
selves and their profession. There
is not an intelligent South Carolinian
who does not assent to this as a truth,
yet jipvv man}' have ever raised so
?much as their little linger to correct
^hisevil? We know and acknowl
edge its existence and baneful conse
quences, yet we do not seek to re
move it.
UpX. Hugh S. Thompson, Stale
Superintendent of Education, furnish
ed us with the annexed information
'which wc gladly \ay before our read
ers. We consider this a timely ac
tion of tlie Hoard of Examiners, and
'we feel assured it will put to rest
many thtobbing hearts of frightened
pedagogues who year alter year have
had to pass through the fiery ordeal
of an examination. Any Hoard ol
?Examiners may in its discretion, rcc
bgnize certificates of qualification
'granted in other counties, as evidence
of qualification to teaeii in the public
schools, without subjecting the hold
era of said certificates to another ex
animation.
1. That in all cases in which fir.it
grade col I Hie: tos have been granted
to applicants upon the second series
of questions for 1879, the County
^Boards of Examiners shall have au
thority to renew said certilicates an
nually for a period of time not to ex
ceed three years, provided that the
h'dlderg ftf such i??i tilled es shall give
to the County Hoards of Examine
bntisfnetoiy evidence of continued
good character and elllcieiicy as
teachers.
2. In like manner C'oir ty BoardsI
qf Examiners shall have authority in
reiipw second grade cei l ilicatcs annu
ally for a period of lime not to ex |
cccd two years.
D. All applicants lor third grade
certilicates to be examined annually ?
as heretofore.
UaKY c-f the school houses through
out the county tire in a bad comli-l
ation, and the school officers and trus
tees should see to it that ijroper and |
mmfdrtahle repairs are made before
'the 'winter months set in. Neither
the teacher or child can do hi* duly
when the bjenk winds go whistling
tkr.iiigh i)}e cracks, making the occu
pants shiver from head lo foot with
cold. An immediate performance of
{his duty may prevent serious consc
juencps afterwards.
Cathartic Pills
Combine the choicest cathartic principles
in medicine, in proportions accurately
adjusted to secure activity, certainty, and
imiforinity of effect. They uro tho result
of years of caroful study and practical ex
periment, and are the most eUeetual rem
edy yet discovered for diseases, caused by
derangement of the stomach, tiver, and
bowels, which require prompt ami effectu
al treatment. Avkk's 1'ii.i.s arc specially
applicable to this class of diseases. They
act directly on the digestive and assim
ilative) processes, ami restore regular
bra I thy action. Their cxtonsivo unu by
physicians in their practice, and by all
civilized nations, In one of the many
proofs of their value as a safe, sure, and
iicrfectly reliable purgative medicine.
Icing compounded of tho concentrated
virtues of purely vegetable substances,
they are positively free from calomel, or
any injurious properties, and can be ad
ministered io children with perfect safety.
