Excerpt from Educational Survey of Wilkes County
Wilkes County was one of the earlier counties Of Georgia, having been created by the Constitution of 1877. The County has a heritage of intellectuality of which it is justly proud, but upon which we will not dwell here.
The public school system of the County, as will be seen by a careful consideration of this report, is inadequate, and fails to Offer to the present and coming generations such educational Opportunities as are necessary to the perpetuation of the Coun ty's proud heritage. A casual Observation of the pictures of the many little schools of the County, as shown on the pages of this report, indicates conditions to which the citizens cannot point with pride. A careful reading of the details of the report will further show that most of the schools are. Being op crated under conditions that defeat the possibility of good teaching or thorough learning; and a further examination into the results Of educational measurements in the small rural schools furnish abundant proof of this statement. To these general statements, it will be Observed, there are a few notable exceptions, but these serve to emphasize the weakness of the system and the inefficiencies in the majority of the schools.
