EX-PR RRIDI3NT TAbvr is doing this country a real
service in calling attention to tho antiquated and
defective educational system of our public schools, lie
makes comparison with the system in vogue in other coun
tries, especially (lermnny.
Three years ajuo public attention was called to the dif
ference between our schools and those of Germany bv a
commission sent by the Herman government to investigate
tlie schools ol tlie untied States and discover some means
of improving their own. Hut the commission, after much
labor, found that our schools were far inferior to those of
Germany and other Kuropean countries, and that Ameri
can pupils were two or three years behind German pupils
of the same age.
The American public school system, which should be
ihe best, was condemned, and the report of the German
commission is by real educational leaders accepted as true.
American public schools have made but little advance
since i'vye education was established. Jt is true the school
expenditures are large and there has been great improve
ment in school buildings, but the system of imparting
knowledge is still the mechanieal grind that it was thirty
years ago when the chief part of schooling was the meni
nrhiug of the rules of grammar and arithmetic. Lt. is only
of recent years that the idea of the intellectual develop
ment of the child has been considered. Discipline and ap
plication to senseless books too long has been considered
the end of schooling.
The reasons are not. far to seek. This country has
lacked a professional class of teachers, with the result that
our children aro given over to young people who adopt
teaching as a temporary occupation. Often they are neu
rotics and hysterics, unsympathetic and wholly ignorant
of the sensitiveness of child nature.
Only in recent years has corporeal punishment been
abolished in the elementary schools as inhuman, but fully
as harmful, if not more so to small children, is the tyranny
of an irritable or bad-natured man or women who applies
to the conduct of a child the .same rules and judgment ap
plicable to an adult.
The pedagogical world up to recent times deemed our
system nearly perfect. It received its fust rude shock
when Mine. Montesorri of Italv gave to the world her sys
tem. She has been followed by Mrs. Stoner of Moston,
who has shown the weakness and stupidity of our school
In the eitv of Garv, hid., there has been a most radical
departure from the usual methods, ruder the superin
tendence of William A. Wirt has been fashioned a school
sstem from the ground upon the theory that school plans
should be made for children, not children for the school
According to the .Journal of Kducation, Mr. Wirt has
made one hchool plant do the work of two, causes children
to want to go to school every day in the year, reduces the
cost of school keeping and produces better educational re
sults than the standardized system elsewhere.
Kach school plant in Gary accommodates twice the or
dinary number of pupils, because two sets are alternating
! every hour between use of a classroom and use of a play
ground, shop or Harden. This schedule not only doubles
tho capacity of the plant to handle pupiU, bin the alterna
tion; ninUe school life as interesting as real life.
The school d ih eight houiv two for stamUiid com
mon lir.utcheM: two for i nn mini t mining, scieme, drawing.
liitiriii', UtlMwatoric, KhupK and studios; one lor auditorium
exercise a ltd iustnictlon; one for lunch and two fur play
ami idiysicul uniuluif, etc.

vboo," m id HflVH Umi Imtide My. Wirt, Mure. MautNorri
wciiw ahuoMi a IkginiuT, M duHiiyly has he carried tlu
principles of self-instruction up through higher grades,
uccenth .Mr. irt has been called by New ork to ;i .
thorough experimental test of his "Gary system" with!
metropolitan schools. From this great results may fl,
nnd our public school system may be revolutionised.
Scientific management may take the place of the prcs
cut aimless control which looks upon our -school system as
ji changeless institution.
