Tlle school and tub Law. The state of Pennsylvania Lias Long since recognized the benefits and the necessity for Public schools mid for this reason the legislature has appropriated millions of dollars year alter year for the maintenance of these schools. The object of compulsory education is two fold first for the Benefit of the individual and second for the Protection of society. With an education the individual is put on a self supporting basis. He is furnished with the tools that will enable him to earn an honest living in the trades or in business. Being Able to take care of himself he is not Likely to become a Public charge. With children whose Home surroundings arc pleasant and refined there is but Little need for a compulsory Law requiring them to attend school until sixteen years of age. These As a class Are not the ones who play truant though of course there Are exceptions. There Are children in this town and in every town who need the help of the compulsory Law to keep them from being As their fathers arc worthless Lazy and besotted. The fathers Are so because in Many cases their fathers Belore them were of the same Breed. Atul Here is where the rights of society attach. It is largely from the ignorant and the depraved class that the criminal Clement comes. For them the Public must maintain poor houses and jails and courts and hence it is interested in having every child educated at least sufficiently to enable it to care for itself in maturer years. This the Public school does for them. There Are parents who Are not til to be parents. They have no interest in the education of their offspring and would rather have them doing something to add a Little to the family Revenue either by working or begging or stealing it matters Little which than to have i ctn preparing for future usefulness by going to school. And Here is where the necessity for u truant officer arises. It is for the vicious Bays who stay out of school in spite of their cuts and for the unfortunate boys whose parents do not care whether they go or not. The Law has done All it can do for these children. It provides for the appointment of a truant officer and vests him with authority to enforce attendance. If these Wise provisions Are not enforced where they Are needed and i Xis grow into in ii. And continue to be tile town drones and loafers generation after generation it is the fault of the Community and not of the boys. A a a Many improvements.
