Auckland Star (Newspaper) - January 6, 1891, Auckland, Auckland The Auckland evening Star tuesday january 6, 1891 educational Institute. Annual session. Presidents address. The eighth annual session of the new zealand educational Institute was opened this morning in the Wellesley a Street school. The session commenced at 10 o clock when there was a Large attendance of members including the Southern representatives. There were also a number of ladies present. Among those in attendance were professors Aldis and Thomas Auckland University Colleg messes s. Luke and Carr Board of education. Adams thames school Leonard Scott Hogwood Burlinson 0.

Harrison president in opening the proceedings said a ladies and gentlemen a in acknowledging the honour you have done me in electing me to the presidency of the Institute a distinction Bioh any Man might worthily covet Lam sensible that it a not my particular fitness for the office but the recognition of a Well defined principle which May have determined your Choice. Had i been influenced by considerations of personal Comfort i should a found to Day still fighting in the ranks. Bub i have a Soldier s sense of duty and your wish a a he More Gratifying that in was expressed during my absence from the Council that i should occupy a position of responsibility and of distinguished honour is my warrant for the character in which i appear before you. Permit me to reiterate the cordial greetings which have already welcomed the representatives from the various Centra Aad to express my pleasure a again seeing round our Couf Icil table the faces of Many old and trusty friends. A retrospect of the Progress of education in new zealand notwithstanding the perils which still threaten our stately ubom is encouraging and hopeful. Another decade will i believe see it to firmly established in the affections of the people that Bhe Gale of detraction will but serve to deepen and strengthen its Roob bold in the National life. We Are scarcely yet in a position to appreciate the value of our education system As a Factor in the formation of National character. I think those who thoughtlessly declaim against its Cost have failed to estimate Bhe enormous gain evident in what it has already accomplished. When the history of this Colony is written in after times the Wisdom and foresight of those who planned and gave to the Young nation its Moat precious gift will receive fitting recognition. It is difficult for some minds to shake off old prejudices and habits of thought but those who believe in the grander future of the Anglo Saxon race will rejoice in the breaking Down of class distinctions the association of All rank in t a common and for Noble ends the daily training in habits of self control and the discipline of the intellect and will pee in these the first stops towards that federation of the world of which philosophers have dreamed and poets Sung. We still at times the cry that the system a a a go Deere m one. It in client to answer in the words of an american writer a a the charge should be carefully examined for it meaning. It it Means that theology is Nob one of the branches of study required or permitted to be taught the charge a True and the Public common school could not live a Day it it were not True. If it meant that the school Art anti religious in any sense the charge has already been Shewn to be on idely false. It must to false unfed be the cultivation of Good intellectual and moral habits is opposed to a faithful consideration of Tho highest truths refer to our future As Well As to on present Well being. What harm can com to a True religion from the ability to read or to perform arithmetical problem from a i now ledge of the Constitution and uses of things in the natural world from an understand Mon from the Power to reason correctly from a training in the practice of Good manner or from the cultivation of the Virtues which Are the ornament of society and the basis of a Republican Constitution. It seems hardly possible that in this age of the world and in this civilized state religion should stand in fear of general intelligencer personal admirable As is the system in Ite general Conception and Broad principles we do not claim for it perfection in its administrative detail. A there Iro Novar anything by the wit of Man so Well devised or so sure established which in continuance of time hath not been corrupted a and our state system in no exception to the general tendency of things human to fall Shore of the Ideal. It in therefore with no feeling of Adverse criticism that we frankly recognise defects in a system of which a a whole we Ora justly proud. It is to the of suitable remedies for these defects a to the advocacy of measures hav Ine for their end the More of client and harmonious working of a system worthy of a free and generous people to which the Council has hitherto not without Gratifying Success addressed itself and to which it will with i Trust increased Success continue to devote untiring Diligence a subject involving the civil rights of teachers will be brought notice. I do not doubt that your deliberations will be guided by the moderation Courtesy and firmness in support of sound principles which have hitherto characterised your proceedings. The attitude of the Council toward this subject will be that depicted in the words of one of England s noblest teachers or. Arnold of Rugby this is the right View of our duties to human Laws and government that we should he not Ala Jab or superstitious nor Yelb wolfish find turbulent but at once High principled pea Reahle self denying and charitable readily and conscientiously obeying where our own convenience or Liberty is the Only sacrifice but eager for the Sake of others that obedience should not Long be claimed by any enactment that is a silly unjust and Nuh Mvusi holding the mean Between the selfishness of indolence and servility on the one hand and that of Pride and impatience on the other following after peace yet not forgetting that the saw should be established in in hew zealand the teacher occupies a position somewhat remarkable and exceptional. He is in danger of being killed by kindness. Paternal government in the form of department boards and com Fri Imbres Fence him. Safely in with it Diioia i Pacioni and restrict Afify i to Multi Ioas refutations fad instruction det amp a Jion Milf Otto and fee ordered an imperil so Tofu of Reu def Otei to Iii of a id pc column Cotaia exhortations eyed parents a fog Stim Dards Lical rectitude make bid Tho theme of ent contributions to the daily papers lest hit heart should he corrupted by riches the Powers thab be have decreed that is shall be a life of a Plain living and his thinking a and to hat end Reward Hie labours with a pittance in Many Case less than that of the skilled Artdean. Lesic offence come of it he May not exercise the political function dear to the heart of the average briton nor too closely identify himself with those projects of social Reform which to Day shake the minds of Mankind. If this be a True and fair presentment its a tribute to the Strong vitality of the sturdy Anglo Saxon race that the teacher survives and in still a Roan and not a machine. The great Law of compensation runs through All things and the teacher will perhaps console himself with the reflection that herein is evident Tho vital interest Felt in education by amp a a tax a a of the Community and will perhaps endeavour to discover in these precautions and limitations Only that paternal care and solicitude which seek to preserve him from the paths of error nevertheless the disaffected will a till plead that the children of freemen should be taught by men and that a manhood Fec Trei by prescription crippled by restriction and shorn of civic rights is a greater danger to the state than any excess of Liberty could be that it is an anomaly in a nation whose pulses still quicken at the Story of Britain illustrious dead who counted not their lives dear unto them that they might win for us Tho priceless heritage of Freedom. Patriotic feeling should Nob exclude due recognition of our own shortcomings nor the desire to profit by the experience of others. It is natural that we should look abroad in order to discover what other nations have done and Are doing for the education of their people. No thoughtful mind can fail to be profoundly impressed on seeing he enormous Progress made during Bhe last fifty years. It is not extravagant to say that we have entered on an Era without parallel in the history of humanity and fraught with issues of such vast significance that their Mere enumeration discount and impoverishes the wildest fairy tales of childhood. On comparing on own system with those of other countries it is interesting to note that Tbs main features while presenting striking Points of contrast closely resemble those of the american system. There is in both the same tenacious loyalty to the principle of local administration of funds Bhe game recognition of Bhe popular element in matters of management and control. The schools of the United stares Are like our own free and the teaching like that of our own schools is strictly secular in character. Bub unlike new zealand America offers the free gift of education primary and secondary to All her children Between the Ages of five and Twenty one. As illustrating further striking Points of contrast and of resemblance i will quote the following words from the pen of a distinguished specialist a a a there in America whatever secondary education exists except that Given by a few private schools and academies in Tho wealthier cities is provided As part of the Public school system by the local school Board and is supported out of the taxes annually raised from the whole Community for the purposes of education. Tho facilities for higher education Ara not capriciously distributed by the chances of ancient or modern Bounty but Are to be found in the mid Eft of All fairly populous cities and towns in the states. But though the cause of higher education escapes English difficulties it must not be supposed that it has not difficulties of its own. It is obviously Eason Fisl to the proper management of any kind of higher education that the managers should be socially in sympathy with those for whom they Are providing the education that they should have an adequate Conception of the value to the Many of the higher mental training of the few and he conscious of Airas based on Broad views of the fruitfulness of intellectual life in a nation. Itis noteworthy that everywhere throughout America adherence to the principle of local self government is associated with Largo and generous provision for the educational needs of her people. Her attitude towards Bhe question of a Cost a which threatens to become it burning one with us 1� Well expressed in the language of on of her citizens. A a we should count no a Crifie too great to maintain our system intact. Parsimony in matters of education is National suicide and no nation pan in those Day a of International Competition afford to starve the intellect of her there As Here teachers Aro selected and appointed by local bodies. Another Point of contrast however is found in the fact thab the Pupil teacher system Peculiar to England Aud her colonies is unknown in american equally unknown among to civilized nations of Europe and doomed to Early extinction owing to its inherent weakness and unsuitability to the changing circumstances of modern school life and regress. Even Canada naturally in Geneed by English modes of thought and English prejudice has outgrown the makeshift stage of Pupil teacher Dom. A a throughout the Dominion All teachers Aro adults and the Pupil teacher system a i quote from a recent paper on state education in that country a a teachers enter the profession males at 18 years of age usually and females at 16 and Aro brained in the Normal schools which at supported by Tho provincial government or a country Model schools which Aro supported at the joint Cost of the municipality and the province they receive their professional education almost entirely free of Cost to a in america1�?T�?i again quote from the same source a the Supply of teachers is found in the 4graduates�?T of the grammar or High schools or from these who Bate spent one year or More in Normal schools or at the in new zealand there is no state regulated prov scion for the Supply of trained and qualified teachers. The Supply of teachers is partly adventitious and partly derived from a class of Young Persona drawn mostly from the senior classes of our Public schools. Among these Are found girls and More rarely boys with excellent natural aptitude for teaching which needs Only cultivation and training to ensure a High Grade of efficiency. It is just Here that a weak spot in our system or amp arabs itself. These children withdrawn from their regular course of study at an age when they should just begin to Realise How Little they know Are placed in charge of classes sometimes containing pupils older than themselves. This Means arrest of development More or less Complete. It Means also that the Pupil teacher must gain what experience she can during her novitiate at the Cost of her pupils and at the sacrifice of a High Ideal. Burdened with duties and responsibilities which often tax the skill Ana Energy of the experienced teacher these Young girls wearied perhaps with the Day s labour assemble to receive an hour1� instruction daily from a jaded headmaster or assistant teacher. This time even when largely increased Asia frequently the Case by the voluntary sacrifice of both teachers and pupils in wholly inadequate for the requirement of an ambitious and extensive syllabus of studies. The Young Beather is thus thrown largely upon her own resources mental overwork and neglect of necessary physical culture result in the impaired physique apparent in too Many of our Young teachers. That capable and efficient teachers cannot be created under such a Syssara gees without saying. That now zealand alone among civilised and progressive countries has so far failed to make adequate prove a on for Tho training and a quip Nenfi of her teachers cannot bus cause anxiety to All interested in the future of education in this country. In speaking thus i do not ignore the efforts which have been made in the South to create and maintain there a better state of things. It is to their lasting he Nour that they have not been faithless to the traditions of a country illustrious for its Devotion to Rico cause of education and of humanity. The question a often propounded Why is in that so much difficulty exists in inducing youths of the right kind to join the service and Why having joined in do so Many you apr Mon desert in for other tied s of labour this question merits consideration and the Al amp Awer is Nob far to seek. Colonial youths if somewhat lacking in enthusiasm for education Are highly practical. A life of nerve exhausting labour which makes a sound and healthy physical development a Rara exception among teachers a life burdened with social disabilities and which presents Small Hope of adequate provision for sickness and old age does not attract town. I remember years ago trying to persuade a Bright lad with Strong natural aptitude for the work to enter the service As a Pupil teacher. The inducements were much stronger then than now. But his reply was a what will it Lead to no sir it in t Good enough a a successful business career since then has justified his Resolution. The question must soother or later Force itself upon the Public mind whether we Are Nob on the wrong track and whether in were not the highest Wisdom to secure the beet a amp Ferial the nation affords and even at some present sacrifice to equip them b careful training for a profession Whf ought to to an Obj eco of ambition to the most capable and the Moat cultured. Among the Many remedies proposed for the better working of an education system a the abolition of boards and school committees and the concentrating of All executive function in the department at Wellington. I do Nob a link Auch a proposal Well advised. Nor do i think that its supporters have reflected that it involves a total surrender of the principle of local self government which i regard As vital to the political and a Octal development of the nation. No doubt education boards like other Public bodies Hava Nob always been Wise. The unnecessary multiplication of Small schools is acknowledged to be a serious evil. Not Only does in cripple the finance of the boards but it a waste of Money and of Power. In one provincial District which i visited i found three schools fully equipped and office red necessitating a Large expenditure for their maintenance standing at a distance of less than a mile from each other. In none of the three was there half the complement of pupils in attendance. Indeed i was informed Hab any one of them was capable of accommodating All the children of that locality. Need i say that the teachers of that District Are ill Ped and that Educa suffers ? but on the other hand it is Only fair to remember thab Many of those schools were erected in anticipation of a Large influx of population unexpectedly arrested by the commercial depression from Bioh. We Are now happily emerging i think that this Council might respectfully suggest to school boards thus circumstanced that in would be Wise to reorganise their schools dosing such amp a Are found unnecessary thus economizing their finances and raising the tone of education throughout their districts. Committees present a great variety of Constitution and of temperament and to is to be hoped that they do not always fairly represent the average intelligence and Public spirit of their particular districts. But the new method of electing these bodies will i Trust effect a much needed Reform and it would be most unwise to permit the errors in judgment of education boards and school committee to Blind i to the value of the services which they have by rendered to education and to the Progress of the country. In addressing a gathering of experts like the present i do not propose to Estarga upon the specific work of the teacher. Truth will present itself to us in so Many forms that there will always be room for difference of method though the objects sought Are the same. But one dominant Principio cannot to boo strongly enforced its importance toe strongly emphasised. Tit work of the to the cultivation of faculty the formation of character. Our belief in this principle will Lead us to Welcome the aids which science offers but with a syllabus of inordinate length and extent and of a character too purely literary to be in Harmony with the spirit of the times Progress on Tho right Linen has been retarded. I Trust the Elma is not far Distant when effect will be Given to the representations of the Council upon this subject. The Council will be asked to recommend the placing of the inspector under the Central department. The object sought to a attained by this measure is greater uniformity in methods of examination and interpretation of the syllabus. White i am disposed to support the principle of local self government and to agree with those who think to May go too far in our cry for uniformity it is Olear that an embarrassing difference of method and of practice pre Vail in different provinces and that Bhe interpretation Given to the Standard regulations is not at All uniform f Bench Daba from the various centres Are misleading and untrustworthy for purposes of comparison. But is in not after All rather Union Baba uniformity that a needed among Lua Pec tora had they opportunities for More frequent Intercourse among themselves Tor conference end consultation i think Many of the difficulties which obstruct our Progress and some Annec ternary friction would disappear. I think myself that the function of the inspector should be revised and enlarged. There is for instance too much Timo devoted to examination and far too Little to inspection i use these words in their technical sense. Children in these Daye live More and have their being in an atmosphere of examinations. There it a perpetual digging up of the seed to discover whether it is growing. This a not a Wise system of culture. Under present conditions we Are in danger of losing All True Conception of education. A false Standard of ethics and of life is unconsciously set up and constantly appealed to with what results it in Nob difficult to surmise. It is Here that under a better system Tho influence of the inspector might work most happily. His experience his knowledge of Bhe Best in Many schools would be at the service of the Len experienced teacher Hia Powers of organisation based on an intimate knowledge of the Best methods would be invaluable in districts Remote from the influence of the larger centres. He should have sufficient time if not Leisure to make himself thoroughly acquainted with the circumstances and requirements Tho characteristics every school in his District. Utopian As the idea May appear to some i hold strongly that the inspector is not necessarily the a natural a Ninny of the teacher Quot but May be and ought to be Bis guide philosopher and Friend. Greater Freedom in the classification of pupils to instead of indict dual examination of the lower standards the method now adopted in England would leave the inspector More ample time for the exercise of the higher functions of Hie office and Weald break Down the official Barriera which tend to separate in worker in a common cause. In the High lit interests of education i should Liko to sea the work of the inspector justly appreciated and adequately remunerated if these advantages can be gained by then have my cordial support. But it ii sometimes Well to make Haita slowly and to in mind that too much centralisation and too Little trait in local into Rob to adut cation May be a source of weakness Aud even of danger. The important a abject of irregular at Tendance of pupils Wilt again engage your attention. Provision has been made for dealing with offenders against the Law and where the compulsory clauses have been brought into operation Good has resulted. Bub a greater difficulty arises with children who Are persistently irregular within Tho limits of the regulation now in Force. Against these Tho Law is a present powerless. Yet they constitute the Moat serious obstacle to Progress with which the Tkachov has to contend. I need Nob expatriate upon this Point. The evil is Well known to Mostof you by personal experience. The remedy in twofold largely increase the number of compulsory attendances during the school year and empower teachers to relegate to lower classes those children who owing to irregular or inter Milf club attendance have ceased to profit by instruction in the higher classes or Maccarthy vice chairman of the Birmingham school Board says land the Law first introduced in 1870 and strengthened by further enactments in 1876 and 1880 is now Universal. It applies to All children Over five years of age it requires regular attendance morning and afternoon for five Day in the week All through the school year it imposes penalties upon parents for the irregular Quot attendance of their children As Well a for their truancy and vagrancy and upon employer for illegal employment of children who should be at school j and it has armed school boards Aud school attendance committees in non school Board areas with very Large Powers which they Are obliged to exercise for following up and detecting offenders whether children or parents or employers of a letter from the Devon port school committee embodying suggestions of great in Portaree will be submitted for your consideration. 1 do neb propose to anticipate your discussion on these Bat i should like to say that i regard it As a satisfactory indication of Public sympathy with our Aims that this committee should desire to cooperate with us in our efforts to carry out necessary measures of Reform. It a a precedent which i Trust other committees Wilt follow. The Council will Welcome the co operation of these and other Public bodies and will i feel assured give to their representations Earnest and respectful consideration. I observe with pleasure that itis proposed to consider what further modifications Are possible in the Constitution of the order to bind together the teachers of new Zeeland and to make it an executive to give effect to their views. I a Ball rejoice in any measures that will contribute towards a bringing Tofic Bori of All ranks into More intimate and fraternal re lotion. I think the Institute will Best accomplish its purposes when its Roll of membership includes not Only All who Are identified with the education system of new zealand but All who Are interested in in the intellectual development of the nation. I am deeply impressed with the necessity for closer Intercourse Between members of the teaching profession of All grades for purposes of Mutual support and encouragement and Bhe due Protection of their interests. But our Aims go beyond the narrow limits of personal advantage and we should deprecate any change tending to contract our larger aspirations within the lesser Circle of a teachers Union. 1 Trust the Council will consider Well whether our Obj ots cannot be More effectually attained from our present platform than they would be under a Constitution More restricted in its purposes and operations. I have recently read an article on 41 state education in America a in which the writer save a a a no doubt there is much to be avoided by England in the methods and working of the american common schools but a there Nob also much that May be prudently initiated ? after All we English May Well take from Tho american people a lesson of enthusiasm for and genuine belief in education As a civilizing and ennobling Force. No one in America fears secular education or looks with dread upon any of its possible consequences to society. There it is reverenced deeply reverenced As a Saviour of society and the teachers As education a Priesthood Abare to that reverence and receive that respect and deference which goes so far to compensate Priesthood All the world Over for meagre material prospects and emoluments. We cannot be said to Bare yet Learned that lesson in England a. Perhaps in now zealand also wefa avenor sufficiently Learned that lesson. But u there not Hope that with the spread of knowledge and the growth of Wisdom a nation May come to learn that in honouring by teacher a he reveals her own nobleness ? her est mate of her of catchers must always be the measure of the moral and intellectual growth of a country. And the teachers to be worthy of the respect and deference Here spoken of to numb have a Noble Conception of life and duty. He must in the High Etc sense be All things to All men. The comparative isolation in which he works and the social ostracism from which he too frequently suffer tend to hinder this. But his Influent of is Subtle and far reaching and it is no Small compensation for those of us who have been Long engaged in the work of teaching that we live in the memories and affection of those with whom food for whom we have Laboured and whom we have aided in guiding from childhood through adolescence info worthy manhood and Noble womanhood. It is Well that the teacher should live in books with the departed spirits of the mighty dead. But he should be a living Force in the great world that lie outside the Walla of his school House and his study he needs Contact with humanity to learn the True measure of his manhood. In this younger Britain across the seas however Humble his in round me he is making history As Well As teaching it and who that knows the Story Olibri Uinn a greatness can doubt that the record will be a worthy one ? he is helping to preserve the traditions of a race that for a thousand years has led the world s thinkers the world s workers and never yet share of truth was vainly set in the world1 wide fallow after hands shall sow the hied after hands from Hill Aud Mead Heap the Harvest yellow.
