SNOBOCRACY IN OUR SCHOOLS
There is nothing that is more repugnant to the true American mind than
snobbishness. It is an attribute and development that the true American
will not stand for or tolerate, from the fact that it is so truly and essentially
un-American, and, when there appears a disposition in the high schools of
the country to cultivate a snobocracy as a feature of educational acquirement,
it is but natural that a very decided and determined opposition should arise
. as to its progress and development Commenting upon this modern feature
of high school life, the Woman's Home Companion very impertinently says:
"There is need of reform in our high schools, crying need of drastic reform.
Some of them have become forcing houses of snobbery, institutions of refined
cruelty, and, in many instances, so outrageously abominable that it is a grave
question whether their high educational effectiveness is worth the evils
which have developed in them.
"The trouble with the high school is that it has adopted all the evils of
college life, and made them into something more vicious than the original.
Incindentally, most of these evils are being gradually eliminated by the
"The fundamental trouble is the delusion on the part of the pupils in the
high schools that they are grown-up men and women, and this the parents and.
the teachers have tolerated, if they have not encouraged. The truth is, they
are only boys and girls, who try to use the machinery of mature minds. Now,
any kind of a machine is likely to be dangerous unless one knows how to use
it, and organization is one of the deadliest of all in its potential possibilities
"One of the greatest abominations that ever attacked the high school, and
it still flourishes where legislation has not stamped it out, is the Greek-letter
society, which still flourishes to gratify the snobbery of the elect, and to
torture the unfortunate who are not invited to join. A few competent class
leaders dominate everything, arranging all the social affairs, taxing the mem
bers, administering punishment and reward according to their own way
"They set the fashions, in using powder, wearing false hair, In fashionable
frocks that make them look it's kinder not to say what the modern 'smart'
hieh school girl looks like. They set the fashions for the dances, demand
ing carriages, gloves and flowers.
"They fix a standaijd for expense; club due's, school and class and society
pins, assessments for entertainments, which, in addition to the fixed charges
of luncheons and car-fare, make It impossible for many of the parents to
keep their children in the high school.
"The whole tendency is to establish an- obligarchy pf snobbishness, to elim
inate the children of parents who cannot afford to buy expensive and Inappro
priate clothes, to pay for social entertainments, and generally to meet the
heavy taxes imposed by the leaders of the societies. In many high schools
a snobocracy dominates to a degree unknown in private schools and in col
leges. This is one reason why so many pupils leave nearly two-thirds of
each class before graduation.
"There is work for those who want to bring about reform, work with the
school boards, with teachers, with parents, especially with parents. And in
this fight, which will be long and hard, they may turn to Thackeray, the
keenest of all enemies of snobocracy, if they wish- to know the most effective
weapons. He wrote:
'"Never forgetting that if Fun is good, Truth is still better, and Love is
best of all.' "
