WORK OUT OF SCHOOL HOURS 0 X MORE OCCASIONS than one the Herald has referred in these columns lo the advisability of doing'away with whal is commonly known as "home work." Thst is to say the spend- ing of time out of the. regular school hours in the preparation of nest day's lessons. In this connection we are glad lo note lhal our namesake in Calgary has taken up Hie question in the. interests of Ihe school children in that city. The Calgary Herald shows a commendable persistency in coming to the attack lo'urge school authorities to consider what is an important problem. It is a qucslipn which is not entirely confined to those who have the ruling in educn- 'lional matters. It is a subject in which the general public lias a riglil to interest itself in. That parents are so interested, at any rate, in Calgary, may be seen in the fact thai the Herald stales that, since it first broached the question of shorter school hours, jl has been in receipt of communications from many representa- tive sourcej. ]t is not necessary to travel over the ground of arguments put forward in favor of shortening hours of sttudy. It is palp- able that a subject like a school child requires a certain amount of leisure lime for physical recreation for its well-being. II is uol good for him, or her, lo be worried viHi home preparation after the regular school hours. The necessity for this extra work, lo put il plainly, is one lo me'el Die teacher's requirement more lhan Ihe pupil's, il is the outcome of our modern exam- ination system, wherein a good average of passes is looked npon as a credit to the teacher, to attain which the pupil is made Ihe victim. This may sound rather harsh, but, nevertheless, it is true. Bnl il is extremely douhUul whether the good results anticipated are brought about by these means. There is a limit to the receptive nature of a child's mind. After the hours in the class room it is hardly fitted (o absorb much more of a mental nature. If preparation is necessary it would appear the more rational .method to devote a certain period of the five hours in school to allowing the pupil to commit to memory certain facts necessary for a given subject. This could be made a preliminary lo Ihfc taking up of the same by the teacher in class. The days of "cramming" are over; evils incidental lo the system have been recognized. Home preparation is after all 'something in the way of "cramming." The responsibility of the education of his charges lies prim- arily with Ihe teacher. The preparation in school hours referred to will have the merit of placing the pupils under his eye. What- ever time spent in tliis would be thoroughly spent under super- Vision, and Tvith the tcncber at hand lo explain away any diffi- cultie.'i. The same cannot be said of home preparation where a pupil would be inclined lo "dawdle" and, thereby, further rob himself of the lime which should he devoted lo outdoor or oilier recreation necessary for producing the healthy mind in Ihe. healthy body, Undoubtedly our Tory friends have greater faith in the future of the Peace River "country than ever.''
