Which Way Are We Educating?
To the careful observer and earn?
est enthusiast for a h'gher and bet?
ter life on the farm, there comes a
thought true and forcible,?are we
educating toward the farm or away
from it? We look at our primary
schools, our high schools, and do
we not see the tendency almost
wholly against the farm? There
is a remarkable development and
interest in agricultural education
in Europe, where it is common for
agriculture to be taught in every
ijrude, from the primary school
through the college. What is the
tendency in this agricultural m
tion of ours? Too often, we f ar.
away from the farm. The com?
mon school recruits the academy,
the college, the university; Uut
does it recruit the agricultural and
mechanical college, or do what it
ought to recruit the ranks of good
farmers? May we not hope the
time is near at hand when agricul?
ture will be taught not only in the
common schools, but the high
schools as well?
Governor Hoard says: 'is
there any good reason why this
farmer's school, the country school,
should not teach the farm hov the
'lenients of agriculture; give him
some knowledge of the technical
terms he must meet in farm journals
iud farm books, and start him on
the road to larger study and strong?
er love for farm life, and thus save
liim from deserting the farm? AU
iver Europe there is a great revival
if agricultural education in the
primary schools; when that is done
