RURAL EDUCATION A NATIONAL
In a democracy every child id tho'
community's child, the state's child,
tho nation's child. Tho obligation for
his proper education for greaters'O
vicc to community, state and nation is,
therefore, a three-fold obligation ap
portioned among them. More than
lialf tho nation's children are enroll
ed in the rural schools, taught by un
trained, poorly paid teachers, in poqr
buildings, poorly equipped, for short
terms, for a short period of years,
The safety and strength of a democ
racy are determined by the intelli
Kcnce and character of the masses of
its people. The standard of intelli;'
gence of the people is determinedly
the quality and amount of their edu
cation. Civilization is no stronger
thnn its weakest link. The weakest
link in the chain of tho nation's educa
tion and civilzation is the rural school
It must be strengthened, let it cost
what it may.
A NEW TYPE OP COUNTRY
The new typo of country teacher
must have a special training for her
special work, training that will give
her knowledge of country things,
country people, country -needs, a sym:
pathv with them, a love and apprecia
tion of them. Should not. country
boys and girls be taught in country
schools by teachers prepared to teac
spared to teach
them the simple principles of the con-
versation, tho fertilization, the tillage
and drainage of the soils, and their
practical application to efficient farm
ing? Should not they be given a
knowlcdgo of plants and plant life,
and how to grow them, and to handle
them most profitably? Of animals,
how to keep them, how to care for
them, and how to get the most out of
them? How much time does the
country school give to the study of
these how much does the country
teacher know about them ?
