Annual Report

OF THE

BOARD OF EDUCATION,

FOR THE YEAR ENDING MARCH I, 1896.



It is very pleasant for your committee to report, that
they think they were successful in hiring teachers
possessing the characteristics necessary to success in the
school room, and farther, that scarcely any friction from
.any source has occurred during the year.

We appreciate this support, but we wish all would do
what a few do.

We think we are assured in saying that many have
studied outside of school hours, and are equally positive
that the rest have not done so.

There is no way in which a teacher can be better sup-
ported than by the parents taking a direct interest in the
pupils' lessons, by taking part in those lessons, through
questions that show you are interested in them, and that
aim for thoroughness and development of the mental
powers. You may say, I have not time; how can others
who are equally busy do so? Why we emphasize this
point so emphatically, is because there is no one thing
that will do more to advance the standard of the
schools.



24

We question whether there is any one thing that will
further advance the property interest of a town, than the
proficiency of the public school. It is to its schools that
the Anglo-Saxon race owes its present supremacy.

The Turnpike school, with Miss Staniels, and South
Lee, with Miss Hale, have done very excellent work.
They belong to that class of teachers whose work does
no
