(The Trustee Sysloni) Po.slbly there In im institution in Canadian life whidi is ir.i^iiin to brs so dumocralic and wliiiii ao com- Iiletuly an tlio tru.'iliM' .synipni in our public Hcliool.s. .Vs ;i (-(umtry achool-Miastcr. I have had IHIId rtiroct experience with city l�i;inls (iliougli I have liearrt a plenty.i TliRiot'ore I will confine my nieaniuK to viriage or rural schools. It is triy oiJiiiion that in lown.s and cities tlio more flagrant abuses do not occur, being checked, perhaps, by public opinion. All good truHtees wlio are perfectly certain that llioy li:ive never abused their office in any renpe(.l may now bo excused. As 1 siiy, in tlio scliooi-room wlien about to trrret out nvis-chiet or trace some niisdeiiieanor to its source. Alas, I fe;ir (hat tlio really good trustees are Ihc. only ones wlio read such siiuilis-tlie oilier kind are confirmed in their wnyti and lake counsel with none. in the last tow word.s. penned almost negligently, lies tlie crux of tlie situation-the .sell'a.s.snnicd dictatorship-as I liavo seen it at work. On every board tliere is always one who takes tlie position of louder-lie Is not generally the best farnici- nor the best informed mnn of the community, but is eoinpoiinded frequently of ignorance and self-assurance and a native force that cunipelrt others to stand out of liis way. Sometime-i lie is rich, Konio times iionr, but always and forever, he is oiiioiiated. Occisional-ly Ue is llie cbiiirinan of the board, but more often the secretary-treasurer, the two officials acting nominally as a clieik on each other, but in practise they are in ualioots, or ot the same family, or else one is under tiie thumb of the other. In one case a very intelligent and widely read man refused a place on the board, saying bo didn't care to lie the goal for the other man, as he knew he would bo. The other ineiiiber." al'o mere figureheads, cast their votes so an to keep out ot quarrels and consider their duty to eocioty done. I have seldom been In a community where the Keiierallty of the people would admit tliat the trustees really represented tlie minds of the voters. But 1 have often and often heard Wo don't like this. Wo- think that is a shame to the cotumuhity, but .Mr. .So and So does just as he pleases." On one occasion the chairman ot the board said of the secretary-lrea.surer who had had a dominant po�ltion for nine years, "lie is not a tit man tor the position. We all know it and 1 know it," yet In the next; issues, this chairman voted as the treasurer told him, against previous promises and expressions. Occasionally as in this case, such an official so oversteps his authority as to rouse the whole com-ihunity and pays the (iennlty, but not before ranch harm has been done, for people aro nolalily apathetic in these matters. It is not at all uncommon tor a teacher's efforts to bo met with "I don't want any school gardens here. 1 don't believe in them." "I think music in schools is nonsense." "I don't want any folk dancing"-that is, he as sumes control over the whole curricu lum which belongs specifically to the department. A two-penny intellect can thus nullify the liest work of the rte partment. Now since tho department lays down a course of study and the normal schools teach the teachers how to teach It, it is not tho next logical step tor tho department to assign those teachers to duty, according to a fixed plan ot credits, where the teachers will do moat good? There is an. enormous wastage at the point where the teai-l.ors are turned loose BO to spetjk. Schools find .their teachers, aijd .teachers their schools by an absolutoly hit or miss method with an enormous expenditure of time and attention not to speak of postage and ca/r faro. As affairs arc now, tho only certain way a teacher has ot getting a pre mlura for experience and efficiency is to stay Itt the same town tor years and years. Does anyone think tliat really makes for efficiency? A teacher's work is a giving out ot self and personality and for the rebivUding she needs change ot scene und environment-also Iho schools need fretiuent ly new blood and fresh view point I have known many leaqhers staying top long in one school until they are ab BoUitely foBsili'/ed and while their sal aries kept increasing the popular out-ciy grow to^ cldiuor-Give us a change! Yes, .change la, Ijhe remedy, fpr many IIIs.'Ab the situation is now, very many. Bol\ooI�^(�.(n(jit-know until the opening day wliethor they have a teacher or no. l''reqnently they accept several, hoping that one and only one J w|lll .{i|ru HP, wjlille .tljo t^pjier, eQual- \ .Nobletord xtrlct. is siicndiug a few (iay.-i v.-ltli his family hero. .Mr. .M. Spaffoi'd Ip.'i for CalKary 11 of tlie .\iiierican steamer Oosterdljle after a collision v.ltli .\iiiericnff sleainsliip San .lacliilo, was reported to aKaiuiic a po.Utlon there, lie has I^w'^'I'^b .steamship arriving here ly wary, holds off on several until she can play them against each otlior and takes the best offer. Tlitin both schools and (eachcrs are soIllollIn(^^ left in tho lurch and tho already over-burdened Inspector spends tho first weeks of the term fitting teachers into vacancies, thus the secretary-treasurer does not discharge hia duties in a way that any single employer wouid tolerate. It is not suggested to abandon the trustee system entirely, but to niucli curtail his powers giving liim entire control over the real properties and tho department to take charge ot the placing of teachers. Kvcry teacher in the province would welcome a graded schedule wliereby teachers of a certain class should go to schools of the same class, according to well defined standard.'. Teachers should tlien be answerable lo the department for their morals and manner ot teaching. Under such a system could this kind of thing happen. * In one small town the assistant principal breaks up the happiness ot a home, crochets eight yokes in a term working in school liours, while the pupils play, and is frequently seen on the streets in a crowd of men smoking a big cigar. In tho nqxt town a woman ot refinement, and a very unusually efficient teacher, beloved by her pupils and their parents asks for her overdue salary. She Is ininiedialely dismissed by the trustees with a choice assortment of strong language. Ves, tliesb tilings happen, reader,-and tlio trustee goes merrily on hia inconsequent way. This is only a bint at the personal abuses of the office. Tliey exist in more flagrant forms and tho publicity following any disclosure causes the teacher to maintain silence and pray that others do (he same. Certainly this is llio case Willi lady teachers who suffer the most severely. - In applying for a position I once spoke lo the chairman ot) a former trustee who had not favored me when he laughed, saying. "Oh I wouldn't lake tho opinion of any trustee tor anything. They do all sorts of queer things tor all so:-ts of queer reasons, mainly personal." beer, in charge of tlie mir.a marko; here since, it.s oiiciiing and will be missed by a wide circle of friends and customers.
