Description

Excerpt from The American Journal of Education, 1864, Vol. 14 To have dwelt so long on a single point, amid the many to be car ried by the establishment of a national association of teachers, may be pardoned to one who, when he looks round such meetings as the present, in search of those with whom he may most intimately sym pathize, finds them few and far between, and all among fellow laborers of forty years' service in the occupation. To himself and his cc-mates any personal considerations of honor to be derived from the business of teaching becoming an acknowledged profession, can be but small inducement to move in this proposal. To him and to them the lease of active life is drawing to a close. But the sight of so many young and earnest faces, on occasions like the present, with all the bright associations which they suggest in reference to coming years, seems to make it worth while to put forth the hand with what energy is left it, toward the accomplishment of an object in which the prosperity of the future is so largely involved for the capable and the faithful teachers who are now commencing their1.
