School Mailers in I'reeborn County. Written for the Standard. K WTO n often asked this, or a similar question, lo-wil.. How did you find the schools through the countv this I desire as brief, ly as 1 can, to answer it publicly in your paper, and also to make a few stigtrcs tions to teachers and school oilicors. Since the first of 31 ay I have visited seventy-four different schools, four of them twice, making seventy-eight its in all. In most of the schools the teachers were doing good work, of them bcinir jiot only competent, but faithful, working in school Jbr the ad- vancement of their pupils, and out of school to awaken an interest among the parents, and also to prepare themselves to meet their ulab.se.- in just the right way, for there are some teachers in this county (whose attainments arc not to be questioned) who that may have that freshness of interest which alone will awaken a kindred interi'st among their pupils, that they may meet successfully the wants of each of their class, and that they may know exactly how much of the lesson each pupil understands; such teachers feel that no instruction is given until it is actually received and used by the schol- ar, and the con.-cqnence is they posse s.- one of the first rccjuisilcs of a good While visiting these schools, I made notes of what I considered the defects and excellences of the different schocls and teachers, thinking to publish occasinnally reports of them, but after much th.iuglit upon the matter, I have L-oneluded not to do so. as good teachers, those who are really icutkiii'j teachers, will become known, and make their influence felt, and be inquired after and sustained by intelli- gent citizens without being publicly mentioned; while charity demands that due respect bo paid to the feelings ol those v. h j may ni't have succeeded a.- well as they would wish, that is. uines- have been criminally negligent in tho performance of their duties. It will, however, be a pleasure to me to give to teacher.-! their just meed of praise in the proper place and manner. Of the severity-four schools visited there were six. which, in uiy judgment, wore not successful in one. it was thought best that the teacher ck.se her school in another, the teacher totally failed in order and consequently the school wa> nearly worthless, but the term being so ne.ir its cl> se hen I was there, it was thought best to let it continue until its time should expire. The oth- er four, for want of t.K't and on the part of the teachers, and co-npf- on the part of parents, were nut con.-idored irood si-honls the remaining sixty-eight I considered as being in a eonditiuii. and well worth all they cost Many of the te.icher- were young and inexperienced, and those of them who feel that they are in their proper vocation should pei-evcre, lining to improve in their profes- sion. Jna-uiuch as our now State Su- perintendent, in his letter to me. said, It is my roqne.-t th.it ynu do all in your power to awaken an interest on the part of teachers and people in refer- ence to the importance of a higher standard of qualification among all our teachers and also iu view of the fai-t that at the late convention a resolution was passed, tending to raise the grade of questions for examination. I trust teachers will allow me to give them these few words of advice, viz.: 1st. All who possibly e.in. will do well to attend theschoul opened by Mr. Lovens. in Albert Lea. lie is not only able to give thorough instruction, but has the ability to organize and discipline a school and to train others 1'or teaching. It is full as necessary To know lime" and irhat to teach as it is to understand what you try tr> teach. 1M. All of you are expecting to attend the Institute to be held in Albert Lea, commencing on the 7th of November, to continue one week, (so Superintendent Wilson in- formed me. though 1 have not yet re- ceived his circular in relation to it) No slight excuse will be received for the absence of teachers from this school of instruction. Those who think they need instruction should not fail to attend those who think they don't, should at least give the encouragement of their presence, and further aid if called upon. 3d. You will do to subscribe for and study the -Teacher." All the Essays that were read at the Convention will be published iu it, "Our Work Among the Little Folks." will alone be worth its cost. As the clerks in some districts have failed to give me their names and .Post Office address I cannot scud them the blanks for their annual report, which should be returned to me by the 5tb of October. To fall in the report is to lose the public funds to tho district. Mr. Batchclder has kindly consented to take charge of a few blanks, and any clerk who has not received them, can obtain them by calling at bis office, or by sending their name to me I did not intend to occupy so much space, and will not write more at this rime.
