Excerpt from Plans for School Improvement in Village and Rural Communities, Missouri Many communities are finding that unwise economy and its accompanying dreariness are losing to them the best stock in the world, the boys and girls of Missouri. That the trouble is par simony and not poverty is shown by the fact that in a large part of the State the wealth per teacher is greater in the country than the city. If the rural schools were better, if rural life were more interesting, if more social events came to them, if sports were more encouraged and conditions less hard, many of the youth now leav ing the farm would stay. Rural Missouri has been the sleeping princess and the fairy prince Progress has roused her With a kiss. She is now stretch ing herself, rubbing her eyes and looking around her. She sees far too many things that have been asleep, and among them are her schools and roads. This pamphlet has been prepared by Mr. Geo. W. Reavis, the State Rural School Inspector, to aid in meeting the newly awakened desire for suitable equipment for the good time dawning for the rural schools. Missouri has been greatly blessed with food and raiment, but the Book says, Man shall not live by bread alone. But the word must have a setting and the acquisition of an understanding of it must no longer be penalized as now in ugly cheerless, insanitary surroundings. If money and heart are put into the rural schools, they Will produce finer returns than the most improved breeds of stock to be found. Yours truly.
