LET THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM KEEP
PACE WITH CITY'S COMMERCIAL GROWTH
Prominent Educator in Final Article Points Out Some Defects in Portland's Schools and Suggests
a Remedy in Co-operation Between Teacher and Pupil.
FINAL ARTICLE BY A PROMINENT
PAR he It from the purpose of the
writer of these articles to say one
word that shall lessen the effi
ciency of Portland's school system. No
one knows better, perhaps, than he,
that the present supervising and
teaching corps is In the main com
posed of men and women of earnest
purpose and conscientious effort, and
that the net results of the output of
our schools is, to use a commercial
phrase, a matter of greater pride than
is felt or expressed by school patrons.
When school matters run so smooth
ly (hat they are the subject of no spe
cial Interest, something is at fault.
What Is needed is as much .public in
terest In the schools of our city as
we display In our commercial growth
and welfare. What Portland 'would be
25 years from today must be taught
in the school room of today. If hon
esty and integrity are to be basic
factors, the schools must weave these
elements Into the warp and woof of
the child'a education not as a side is
sue, but by well-directed effort. If we
are to have business foresight, busi
ness conscience, civic pride in adorn
ment, intelligence and cleanliness, not
our schools alone but our citizens at
large must be taking time to think on
these things. If our schools fall short,
when compared with those of states
from which our rapidly-growing popu
lation is coming, It is high time that
we set about to remedy these defects.
Lot no one condemn the writer be
came he finds things to criticise he
can find many more to praise, but it
does' not suit his purpose to eulogize,
because growth comes more from hon
est dirsatlsf action than from dreamy
contentedness. The time Is past when
men occupying positions Involving
the weighing of values can be less than
skilled experts. A Mayo or a Lorena
Is not satisfied with his own neces
sarily narrowed experience, but
Fearchcs for printed opinions and, still
unsatisfied, travels far to compare his
beliefs with others. We need men
at the head of our schools made of the
same eager stuff, men who are grap
pling with educational problems at the
fountain head, the great National
ossenihlles of educators, men who are
students among students and who
are impelled by self-initiative to blaze
new roads that lead more directly
toward today's needs. It Is a matter
of regret that Oregon is rarely heard
from when educational councils are
In session and that our several city
schools do not possess stronger types
of.. Individuality and growth. If the
Introduction of a few fads would beget
this espirlt de corps this disposition
to keep In touch with the last deliver
ence on mooted questions, then let the
fads come, for purposeful co-operation
which may overshoot reasons is better
thar. watching the clock for the time
of tne gong and the clerk's check.
When the present hard-working
suverlntendeiit Is retired let him be
followed by a man of well-balanced ex
perience and broad culture a man
whose voice will arrest the attention
of educational councils as the heads
of departments In our Agricultural Col
lege are doing in their chosen fields.

If the salaries paid our principals are
not enough to warrant their attend
ance upon the courses in higher edu
cation at our great university Summer
schools, then Portland should pay high
enough to get such men. We cannot
afford not to afford It. As a city we
can afford to have men of no other
type than men whose scholarship, like
Chaucer's person, will point to bright
er worlds and lead the way.
Something is wrong in our system
when Spokane and Tacoma enroll as
many High School students as Port
land. We suspect that this lack' of
ambition on the part of grammar
grade students is due. in great meas
ure, to the lack of stimulating influ
ence which principals should exert
over them at this time of storm and
stress in the student's life.
It is a question of broader-minded
men and women against roustabouts.
Men and women of only common-school
equipment sooner or later are passed
on the road toward positions of value
and Influence- by those who started
later but with a better equipment. If
Portland wishes her boys to be rousta
bouts, then city indifference to higher
education will easily reach this end.
The boy who smokes cigarettes and
earns a dollar and a half today will be
smoking cigarettes and earning but
little more 10 years from today. It
Is not to be expected, however, that
men and women lacking higher edu
cation will effectively lead our chil
dren above their own standard.
Portland has either reached the size
when it should maintain a city normal
training school of high standards edu
cationally and professionally, and aban
don at once the inbreeding pupil
teacher department or support our
state normal schools as other cities
are doing. Above all things. Portland
has discovered, during the past year,
that she has needed a more cosmopol
itan spirit. In spite of much con
servatism the bars are now broken
down and the city is forging ahead
commercially. Just this same spirit
of larger vision must lay hold upon
our school system. '
The majority of our teachers are ef
ficient and progressive, but public serv
ice knows no favoritism, and without
fear or favor, some should be given
timely warning that their services will
be no longer required. With a board
membership of at least seven, now

It is greatly to be hoped that the
school buildings hereafter erected

adapted to all. demands. That the
lawns about our buildings should give
way to playgrounds can be the sub
ject of no controversy. Fresh air
against dusty, sunless basements is a
question the public will quickly set
tle if allowed to do so. With the in
troduction of the fan system of ventila

child may have pure air, not the stuffy
schoolroom-smelling sort, now all too
common, should come the removal of

OREGON CITY, Or., Sept. 14. (Spe

Sheriff Beatie, of Clackamas County,
was advised tonight that the club was

the fjdoption of medical inspection of
buildings and pupils - whereby disease
may be separated from health, and
dirt from" cleanliness, are precautions
of pressing need. To this end also the
erection of 20-room buildings with lit

to smaller ones with both roof and

Our physical director, whose work
has often been the subject of city
pride, might well modify his course so
that for part of tie time, at least, a
relaxation exercise, hearty and happy,
might take the place of those now
calling for concerted effort on the part
of teacher and pupil.
It Is to be regretted that many of
the principals look upon instruction In
manual .training as immaterial and ir
relevant, and do not support the In
troduction of this long-delayed in
struction with hearty co-operation.
That cooking, sewing and an ele
mentary course In nursing would be
time well spent, even if it took the
place of mathematics for the girls,
cannot be seriously questioned. The
knowledge of what constitutes hygienic
cooking, even if the daughter of the
home may never cook, is of higher life
value than to be able to thrum a few
selections from the masters in music
Why Portland should refuse to es
tablish1 kindergartens in connection
with its school system Is hard to un
derstand, when most cities of our size
have done so is another question an
aroused public should help to solve- as
well also as that of why a thorough
going commercial course is not a part
of the high school curriculum.
It is to be deeply regretted that
those teachers who believe In teaching
morals are not warmly supported by
the supervising corps, and that some
wholly. Ignore both the teaching and
practicing of this branch required by
law to be taught. Again we Bay an
aroused1 public sentiment is needed to
restore this branch to its normal place.
If ever there was need for deep-set in
fluences making for civic righteousness
it is now.
That that spirit of co-operation be
tween all concerned in public instruc
tion in a neighboring city so markedly
In contrast with our own lack of it,
will find a place in our system only
when it Is Invited by supervisor and
those supervised is clearly seen. It is
the one great defect in our system,
yet easily remedied. The child will al
ways be of more value than the course
of study, and the teacher's good will
of vastly greater Importance than her
tacit loyalty. Teachers, above all
others, need thai inspiration and initi
ative which comes from hearty sup
port and encouragement.
Again the writer wishes to say In
closing that Portland has much to be
proud of in her public school system.
To the casual observer the course of
study and administration Is all that
could be desired. That an aroused pub
lic interest will rise to the occasion
and place Portland's public schools in
a position of the best among the best
is the belief of this critic.
