A very Krnvo error i the
constant luK'islative chmiKOfl
in uducnlional mnttcrn. It la
now proposed that tho public
school syHtetn bo ehanicod from
a district to a county unit plan.
The bill provides for tho election
of three niombers of a county
board of education who are to
appoint a county superintendent
and with him will employ nil
teachers, audit all bills, perform
all work of school bonrdB, otc.
To adopt this plan is left option
al by vote of electors in county.
The following was taken from
tho proceedings of State Teach
era' Association in EtiKcne last
December: Oregon will face n
serious shortage of teachers in
1915 unless hiuli schools of the
stnte respond to an appeal for
tho installation of teachers'
traininir courses, according to J.
A. Churchill, State School Sup
erintendent, speaking before tho
Oregon state Teachers' Associa
tion here today, at which about
700 educators were assembled.
"Oregon needs 1000 teachers
annually, nnd the State Normal
School docs not furnish inoro
than one-tenth of this number."
ho said, "nnd this is in fnco of
the fnct that after Sontcmbcr 1.
1915, no one, not even u high
school graduate, can bo granted
a certificate who has not had an
elementary teachers' training
"While tho course in the high
school cannot give tho training
that a standard normal school
gives, it can partially prepare
teachers for their work, nnd it
can givo tho training course re
duired by the now law. Inci
dentally, it will assist in raising
tho standards of tho rural

In conclusion, wo must bring
tho curront of education into

deeper and stronger instead of
destroying its usefulness by
spreading it over vast areas.
