Our Educational Department
It affords us much pleasure to re
open nu Educational Department in
Tho Herald. This feature of the
paper was appreciated last yenf, and
we believe helped to give impetus to
interest in educational matters in Box
Butte and adjoining counties. Ac
knowledgement of valuable assistance
in conducting this department last
is due Ex-County Supt. Phillips.
This year we are better supplied
with office help for this work than we
were last year. Mrs. J. W. Thomas,
once a Nebraska school ma'am and
still interested in public school work,
will render valuable assistance. Miss
Delia Reed, the present county super
intendent, has promised data for the
department that will aid much in mak
ing it interesting and helpful. We
have reasons to expect the active Co
operation of a larger number of teach
ers and school officers than ever be
fore. Taking everything into consid
eration, we think we can safely prom
ise that this department of Tho Herald
will be superior to anything of the
kind heretofore appearing in a western
Nebraska newspaper.

County Eighth
Grade Examinations
As a number of teachers have writ,
ten the county superintendent asking
about the eighth grade examinations,
we give below an article from the pen
of Assistant State Supt. F. S. Perdue,
published in the February number of
The Nebraska Teacher. Definite in
formation as to dates, places of exam
inations, etc., will be given later.
Following is Mr. Pcrdue's article;
Under the workings of the frco high
school law the county eighth grade ex
aminations are state wide in applica
tion. A student holding a certificate
from the county superintendent is
legally entitled to enter any approved
high school in tho state. It is evident
that when tho examination is not prop
erly safeguarded, some students who
do not have the necessary preliminary
training to do effective high school
work may receive these certificates.
Where such is tho case, discourage
ment comes to the student in his at
tempt to carry the regular high school
work and he is cither forced to drop
out of school or to remain doing ineffi
cient work and repeating the same,
which places an unjust financial burden
on the home district which is paying
for free high school tuition.
With a view to gathering informa
tion for the purpose of establishing a
uniform system for these examinations,
a qucstionaire consisting of thirty-two
questions was sent to all outgoing and
incoming county superintendents on
December 17th, igog. Reports were
received from 10G superintendents
representing 88 counties, Seventeen
counties sent reports from both the in
coming and retiring superintendents,
The results of this questionaire would
show that in order to accommodate all
parts of the state there should be three
examinations, held in the months of
March, April and May; that these ex
aminations shall not be held at the
time of the regular teachers' examina
tions but upon some other date. The
reason for this being that few of tho
county superintendents have the neces
sary office force and facilities to ac
commodate both teachers and pupils
for the combined examination. The
date of the eighth grade examinations
shall be uniform throughout the state.
There shall be two days given for the
examinations, namely; Thursday and
Friday, the program to be as follows:
Thursday a.m , grammar, history;
Thursday p.m., orthography, physi
ology; Friday a.m., arithmetic, reading;
Friday p.m., mental arithmetic, writ
iug, geography, including agriculture.
The examination papers shall be
marked by the county superintendent
or by a committee appointed by him,
and under no circumstance shall the
papers be marked by the pupil's own
teacher. Twenty-four county superin
tendents report that the expenpes of
the eighth grade examination are paid
by the county, reporting sums ranging
from IF 10. 00 to $50.00 appropriated for
this purpose. One hundred and twelve
report that bills are allowed as needed.
Theieport shows that the average
passing grade should be 75 per cent.
with a minimum passing grade of C5
per cent. The examination shall be
held at the county seat and other cen
tral places in the county and not at
the various school houses whete there
may be candidates for (he eighth grade
diploma. In the larger counties, such
as Cherry, Holt, Custer, Lincoln and
Gage, it would seem advisable to ar
range Tor central examinations at con
venient points at home school houses.
These may be located for the conven
ience of the candidates for the eighth
grade examinations.
Several county superintendents re
commend that when examinations are
completed in the 7th grade, these
grades, which are passing grades, be
retained when the examination is com
pleied. It is the opinion of the ma
jority of the county superintendents
reporting that the eighth grade pupils
should have the same rights m retain
ing grades as are accoided to the teach
ers in the uniform state examination,
that is, that the grades he retained to
the credit of the pupil until he finishes
the examination, or so long as ho io
mains in school.
This report of the quostionaiie is
published at this time so that supeiin
tendents and teachers generally over
the state may have a knowledge of
what the superintendents of the state
think in these matters. It is suggested
that superintendents and others inter
ested, write in additional suggestions
that they may have in this matter to
the state superintendent so that he mav
have the fullest knowledge possible ol
all the conditions in the state before
making the final recommendations for
these examinations.
Teachers' Examination
The regular monthly examination of
candidates for teachers' certificates
will be held in the office of the county
superintendent on Friday and Satur
day, Feb. 18 and ig.
