POORLY PAID TEACHERS
The teachers are probably the mosc
poorly paid this season of any class
of American workers. Thousands of
able young instructors and profes%
sors have abandoned the schools and
colleges, and gone into business pursuits;
and many women teachers
have found other occupations. Col
leges have been making the most
strenuous efforts to find means with
?. -1" v. tVio ca1nrip? of

their corps of instructors. Harvard'
University, for example, has organized
a campaign for an immediate
sum of $15,000,000 as fresh endowment,
the income of which is to be
applied chiefly to an increase in the
pay of teachers.
Temporarily the shortage of better
teachers for public schools will .
be to the advantage of the untrained
and immature, especially .in small
towns and country districts. The
larger school systems will, even more
than heretofore, offer inducements to
the good teachers from the country
At least, school-keeping will be shaken
out of some old ruts. It is to be
lioped that the resulting situation
may stimulate the movement for con*

adoption of a deliberate 'policy on the
part of State government f<?r the
maintenance of rural life. Country
children should be as well instructed
as those of the larger towns and cities.
One of the results of the shortage
of teachers, furthermore, may
be the revival of conscious and deliberate
educational effort in the
home. Where the school teachers are
young girls without professional
training, who engage in the work as
a temporary mlake shift, it is not
wise to rely too entirely upon schools
for educating children. Sharp distinction
should be made between professional
teachers of character, experience
and ' proved success, and
those of the casual kind. The professional
teacher should be well paid,
and should be restored to that position
of honor and influence in the
community that belonged to the
schoolmaster of an earlier day.?
