Excerpt from Educational Survey of Jackson County Georgia There are forty-seven white public schools and fourteen negro schools in the county. By reference to this report it will be seen that the white schools are usually located about three miles apart, which makes the school districts consider ably smaller in area than is contemplated by law (16 square miles). It will also be seen from the photographs and descriptions herein, that the school houses generally are of substantial char acter, but do not measure up to present-day ideals in school architecture. Their chief defect is in the very important mat ter of lighting. Most of them are insufficiently lighted. And practically all are improperly' lighted. In some of them the windows are placed too low, and in all they are too far apart, causing cross-lights upon the desks. In nearly every instance the pupils face Windows. Often the poor lighting is made poorer by improper coloring of the walls and ceiling. Gener ally the locations are well selected for beauty, but rarely have the premises been much improved as yet. The drinking water for the children has been carefully looked after as to its source, but not generally as to its' delivery. The wells are in much better than average condition. With few exceptions the school toilets are a menace to the physical and moral health of the children, and should receive better and more constant atten tion. Comparatively few of the teachers have availed them selves of the opportunity to Vitalize their schools through the agency of organized clubs, or otherwise appealed to the natural interests of the children. Attention of patrons should be called to the careless and negligent manner in which some of the school grounds and houses are kept, for these have a pow erful bearing upon the training of young children.
