OUR COMMON SCHOOL
In the early days of onr Re
public, before we had passed the
experimental stagehand when
the fate of all previous republics
strengthened the belief held by
many good people in the United
States that the life of our nation
would be short, in summing np
tie arguments for and against
this idea a wise statesman declar
ed that "the common schools
tmiiaaium or the
nation," without them we would
soon loose bur freedom and some
bold soldier or cunniag politi
cian would don emperial robes
and rule the country. Another
one about the same time, more
than a hundred years aeo'ln
great oratio ii declared i "Wo
must educate! We must educate
or wt must perishj" . , ;
The people heard and heeded
and began the work of establish.
ing common schools. , In this
great work" they had many ob
jections to meet and overcome.
he rich had colleges in which
they could educate their sons,
and academies where their dau
ghters could be taught, aud (felt
that it was an outrage to : tax
them to educate other people's
children. The possessors f of
arge . colonial grants of land
deemed it Utile better than rob
bery to make them contribute
towards building ' schoolhouses
every two or three miles on their
baronial holdings. : Many of the
small farmers and mechanics
entertained a prejudice against
schools supported by the public,
and looked upon them the same
as poor h ousea, for paupers only .
Ihroughout extensive regions
this prejudice against public free
schools, was so strong that many
parents, though unable to send
their children to schools where
tuition had to re paid, were too
proud to permit them to attend
free schools, and let them grow
up illiterate, unable to read ' or
write, and thus swelled the illi
teracy of their state and greatly
hindered the development of the
common schools and of their
states.;' ' , ; ., .
The- literature of the first
hundred years of the United
States contributed largely to the
low estimate in which the com
mon ! schools were held. For
the first century of our national
ity, writers, to evoke a broV
grin from their city and college
bred reader?, gave grotesque
descrip'ious of country schools,
the raggeduess of the pupils and
ignorance and crule manuers of
the teachers. Washington Ir
vin's fiction Ichobod Crane was
accepted as a true photograph o
the" country school teacher and
when a writer, whose 'ossified
brain had never originated an
idea or had visor enough to
comprehend tru'h, failiue
.-. - o
evervthinsr else. Attemntnr) In
. . -c -
i DeCOUle a Wll, OO lUmea 10 "V6
pedaogui" and his silly eff usiaua
were applauded by stamps of "the
gouty feet of college professors.
The pioneer female teachers
were treattd with less justice
than the males and when a para,
petetio lecturer with "A moony
breadth of virgin, face by
thought inviolate" vainly tried
to be witty he pronounced the
word school tuarm with a broad
(a) as though it had been soaked
in German lager beer and a
thrill on the (r) as if it had a t
of the ague from long soaking in
an Ir'sh bog. . e
-The common school of Amer
ica has emerged triumphantly
from the conflict with prejudice,
and in 1800 there were' 15,925,
837 American children enrolled
in the . public schools out . f a
total of 22,261,863 children of
school age, leaving but 6,335,976
out of school or attending pri
vate schools, academies or col
