Excerpt from Wisconsin Journal of Education, Vol. 18: Organ of the State Teachers' Association and of the Department of Public Instruction
To speak of the responsibility of the school is to personi it, which, while not strictly accurate, may be an allowable license of speech, in order to idealize and differentiate its position. Responsibility is implied to be commensurate with ability, in the topic assigned to me; and a free rendering of it, to my mind, is, what is the' proper and natural work of the school in the formation of the character of its pupils. To open this subject, it will be necessary to begin with the ideal school, and inquire what it may be, before we descend to the practical, and ask what it is.
