Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 17, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta THK LETHTmiTJGB UMLY HKKALS MONDAY, JANUARY BY THORNTON W. BURGESS The Bed Time stories for this week had not arrived up to the time of going to press. It fc hoped they will ar- rive in time to be resumed tomorrow. People's Forum DANGEROUS ENGINEERING TEACHERS AND SALARIES Alberta, j January 14th, Editor Herald: would like ID reply to your article entitled "Minister Smith is titrbngly against minimum salary." What the teachers in this province want is justice, at least. At the pres- ent tiros there is a minimum salary of J840 a year. Now this scale applies to all alike, teachers of training anJ experience and those without training ijid experience known a.js-permit teach- ers often young girls straight out of high school. It would be very inter- esting to know what percentage of tho teachers in rural schools are of the permit type. How many have never taught How many who ought, to be taking training as teachers? rural schools are suffering, not the city schools. The city trustees are- aa a rule, educated, phrewd men. who re-- fuse to employ any but Qualified teach- ers. They have a superintendent of education, aa expert educationalist reports on the teacher's efficiency.} But in rural communities there is a, different state of affairs. Trustees, of-j ten uaeilncated. even illiterate j men whose judgment is often swayed' by public opinioii as to the teacher's efficiency, are not as a rule very in- terested 50 long aa the school is run- ning. Too often Is a teacher's ability 'ny the amount OL time he or tlviitlng friendship with the inironiej and to camouflage any defects j in real euuo.uion of the children. In-j know all this. They have no" alternative- but to submit owing to the dearth of teachers, cither that or shut schools down. Smith is right. .There should :iot be r. flat minimum salary, but to those who prove by their training and experience that they are entitled to it. Tho Alliance does not recognize per- mit teachers. What, is wanted is rec- ognition of those whi! make teaching their life work, in whose opinion no other profession is half so noble, or hair so necessary, those- who realize that the growth of this province in tho future depends upon the character of [ho children they train morally and, Intellectually loihty. For such teach-1 crs the A.'T. A. claims the rijrht to1 exist only on u year. Other-; wise they will cease to exist. j There is no iftinimum and maximum j salary fov them. Money cannot pay them. Even the generations to come will bo their debtors. Many such highly trained experienced teachers have deserted the profession in dis-1 gust, never to return, because they: could not exist on less than aj month. Who can these days?
