THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
Held Here On Last
Friday; 72 Present
Some Interesting Facts Re
garding Work Of School
Given By Bunn.
On last Friday niht 72 school of
ficial:; and friends gathered at the hih
fcchool here fir the regular monthly
meeting of t.'acher.s. together with
the Township Hoard of Education,
county superintendent, and presidents
of 1. T. A '-s.
After bcintr served supper by 12
students of the home economics de
partment, under the direction of Miss
Louise Edwards, the meeting adjourn
ed into the business session.
B. 1). Bunn, superintendent of the
township schools, presided and talks
were made by R. L. Prevost. chair
man of the board. Homer Henry
county superintendent of education.
,S. E. Connatser and M. II. Bowles,
principal of the East Waynesville and
ientrai Elementary schools resnec
tively, soke on the need cf a welfare
on ice r.
Mrs. Grover Davis representing the
Parent-Teachers' Association made a
brief address on the work of that or
ganization. It was pointed out during the meet
ing that work of an outstanding na
ture was being done on the vocational
agriculture department, the business
course and the home economics de
partment. At present there are 80
in the home economics department, 70
in the vocational classes, and 05 in
taking the business course.
, Due to lack of time, B. D. Bunn
was unable to give the address that
he prepared for the evening, and it
is being printed here in brief form
tor tlie benefit of all patrons of the
schools of this township.
By B. D. Bunn.
Just now the schools are facing a
serious situation. Taxing systems
have broken down. Classes have been
increased beyond the possibility of
the best educational service to the
children. Health activities have been
curtailed. Kindergartens have been
dropped even in cities where there is
no place for the children to play out
side f school. Music and line arts
especially needed in an age of increas
ing leisure are too often crippled.
The schools will weather this emer
gecy and come out of it stronger and
better than ever if the public can be i
made to understand the crucial im
portance of education, its relatively
low cost, fts inspiring history, its
dynamic philosophy of a beVer life
for the masses, The teachers of today
are called upon to do what pioneer
teachers have always done to justify
the worth of school service; to magni
fy the importance of childhood; to
show that schooling pays in terms of
a richer and finer life. The great need
of this hour is not a lower standard
of living which will provide work for
all. Enriched educational opportu
nity is one of the surest ways of
raising the standard of living.
The schools of America are ready
to meet the challenge; to take their
case to the people! to present the
facts just as the nation's founders
m An arlier day looked forward.
Charted new courses, and aroused the
aspiration of the nation.

Now tell, I pray, from what I've said,
What were our ages when we wed.
We are hedged about with proven
tialism, with self centered businesses,
with legislative representatives, but
probably the greatest liability to our
progress, is the unworkable centralized
powers, that were conceived in iniqui

civilization by high piwcred trusts
and corporations. I quote here Supt.
T. Wingate AndrcAvs, who has ex
pressed this idea better than any man

But our schools cost too much. ,j

the operation of the schools in North

These figures are compiled by the
U. S. Bureau of Education. All fed
eral figures are a year behind, but
our relative position in per capita;
expenditure for schools did net change
during the past year.
Our school people have furnished
our people with an educational oppor
tunity for our children at less than
half the cost in the nation as a whole.

Suppose our sjtock dealers could
sell- us animals far cheaper than they
could be sold in any other state; or
suppose automobiles could be sold here
for ; one-half of what they could be
sold in forty other states; or that
we could buy all our luxuries hprc for
sixty per cent ol the amou-it for
which they sell in thirty-eight other
; tates, would we not proclaim our
leaders; most economical '-'gen-i ? ' Yet
that is exactly what the educational
l'oM'e of North Carolina have cine
for our public schools.
There have been two justifications
for supplementary budgets, and one
is just as -important' as tlv: other
One justification is the ' '"'desire : of
the people of a community to provide
a better educational opportunity for
its own children than the state can
afford for all the children. The peo
ple of the community, therefore, have
voted on themselves taxes with which
to supply this additional opportunity.
This policy is as old as the schools in
North Carolina. It is nation wide,
probably world wide. For the first
time in the history of the state the
right cf a community to do this is
challenged toy a state authority one
that does not desire its right to rule
from the votes of the people of the
state, but by appointment.
WHY OUR COSTS ARE LOW
Two important faictors enter into
this low cost.
In the first place She average an
nual salaries of our teachers are
about $500 under the national average,
but the average training of our teach
ers is better than that of many of
the richer states.
Second big factor in the low cost is
the length of term.
Taking these two factors into con
rideration the schools of the state are
well above the half way mark in
Standards 6f efficiency. Our city

the same. Our rural schools are well
above the average in many of the
richer states, not because we spend
more money on these rural schools
than do the richer states, but rather
because we have a better type of or
ganization of these rural schools.
Fur half the money that some of
cur sti.tes are spending on their rural
-choui.-. we could provide here in North
Carolina a rural school system that
would be the best in America.
