Little Change in the Principles
The Sfate superintendent of edu
cation devoted a recent issue of
"S hod Facts" to the first report on
North Carolina public schools, which'
was made in the yeaf 1853.
While there are many differences
in the world of that day and this, yet
it is a striking fact that practically
every principle of the school work of
thjit day is exactly the sahv today,
except that it has grown larger, and
prhaps we find more democracy in
th' sch*>l system of that lay than
we now have.
Then each teacher had to have
certificate. There were five grades j
ranging from first to lifthr At that
time the principal qualifications were
and moral _ qualifications.
Nrtw the main "units.
a certificate was good for only one
year and in no county except the
one issuing it. The certificates were
issued through a board of examiners,
appointed in each county. Now it
is different and all certificates come
down from headquarters, good in any
county, Good or bad, if yow ve- got
the units you have got the goods,
without one word being said about
mentality or morality.

ty supported 20 teachers, the sal
aries ranging from $lB to $25 per
month. The salaries in some of the
counties fan as low as $9 per month.
In many of the counties the re

ers were men or women. However, of
the counties reporting, there were
810 male teachers and b4 female
teachers, showing that 75 years ago

Perhaps the greatest improvement
in the entire public school system is
the lengthening of the term. It is
now an average of three times as
long as when the public.schools were
established, and a larger jiercentage
of the children now attend.

nesses in our school system. We
have them today. We will have them

make our schools the best "possible.
Failure to do so will be fatal to the
