Mb. Editor.—To closing my first
communication on Public Schools, I say
such are my views briefly given, and I
may be altogether wrong, but 1 am fol*
ly of tha opinion that they are correct,
and can bo abundantly vindicated.
The Boards of Commimlonera hays
bean ia session recently, and from a
notice of the Wake County Board In
the News A Ooserver of tha 4th last.,
1 quota a* follows :
“Tbs Board of Coonty Commission
ers finished np its business yesterday,
and adjourned to meat again in special
seesion next Tuesday.
“Several important school matters
had been made the special order for
yesterday, hot they ware postponed tiU
-“The charge* against tba school com
mittee in district No. 8, white, Little
River township, was the special order
for 10 o'clock, hat owing to tho tact
that no one appeared in behalf of the
petitioners, the matter waa indefinitely
postponed and tha echool ordered to be
“The bearing of the’com plaint* from
diatrict No. 6, whits, Ltitl* River town
ship, was mads the special order for
next Tuesday at 12 o'clock.”
And tha Commissioners of this comi
ty, Jones, had a petition before them,
caused by the arm-agreement oi the
School Committee, and their action re
sulted In tho following order passed by
tb* Board, viz:
“By order of tha Board of Education,
February Ist. 1b97, yon, a* one of tba
committee w district No. 21, white
race, was ordered to stop school at
once, and not to commence again until
July let, 1897. By order of tb* Board."
Wbst tha natura of the complaint*
ware before tba Board In Wake dose
not folly appear, but so far as they do,
are charges against the School Gum
mitts*.'* And if all tha complaints
brought before tho Bas’d of Commis
sioners of the various counties on last
flr*t Monday could be examined, no
doubt bat that a vast majority of them
would be against tba School Cdmmittae,
both white and colored. This matter
to worthy ot lnvo-tigation, and, if dili
gently enquired into the focts brought
prominently to tb* front where they
can be seen, tbe ■ exhibition would fb*
astounding, and the School Committee
would be mocta surprised at the effects of
their action in the administration of
their duties as School Committeemen.
I do not for on* moment question tbe
intent of tha School Committee, hat
simply state fr om my standpoint, what
are stubborn facts end would urea the
great need of reform, and firmly bellev*
that tha best reform to be had is to get
clear of School Committee*, and let tb*
duties the law directs to be performed
by them devolve upon soma other piece
of machinery not eocampUoated.whera
there cannot be an many wheals within
a wheel, and entirely he rid of packed
School Committees, fixed up and put
together for a specific purpose by some
But some will eay. and doubtless will,
does the change proposed offer a rem
edy. In my opinion it does, at least
could not make matters any worse.
As a general thing school Committees
have hot limited knowledge or the real
wants of their district, and do not feel
thatlntarsetin tha matter that would
prompt the acquisition of tba same.—
And It may be that whatever interest
is shown to the resulr. of the age or their
children, without any regard to tba gen
eral welfare of *h« district. And taking
counsel of such feelings U to bat natural j
that there should be collision.eonfliatan |

not destroy, tha work of any teacher

bring forth bitter fruit.
Now, it is my opinion reached altar
considerable observation and experi
ence in tba maaagMZMUt of tba public
schools, that ht proportion as tho ma
chinery for their maalpuktiou to sim

there art other duties that should he

that teachers era measuring np to their
