Twenty-Second Annual Report of the Board of Directors of the St. Louis Public Schools : For the Year Ending August 1, 1876 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Twenty-Second Annual Report of the Board of Directors of the St. Louis Public Schools: For the Year Ending August 1, 1876 The report of the Principal of the Normal School exhibits the continued prosperity of that institution. Mr. Soldan, the principal, has demonstrated the capacity of the school to supply all the teachers needed for assistants in our schools. Much has been done to raise the standard of its graduates by requiring higher qualifications in scholarship of those who enter, and also by increasing the length of time for completing the course of training in the Normal School. The report of Mr. Morgan shows an unprecedented in crease in numbers enrolled in the High School, and the graduation of a senior class of one hundred pupils. I have pointed out before the economy of giving a High School. Education to such pupils as prove their claim to it by fitting themselves in the lower schools. Such pupils have shown their capacity for directive power in the community, and their ability to fill places of trust and honor. It is economy and justice on the part of the city to educate its own sons and daughters for the higher positions of usefulness, rather than to confine our native-born youths to menial employ ments and to import educated talent from abroad to direct them.
