Excerpt from Annual Report of the Superintendent: October, 1924

The following table copied from the report of the Business Agent summarizes concisely the expenditures for maintenance of public schools and for repairs and alterations of buildings (but not including cost of land and new buildings) for the financial year ending January 31, 1924.

Training in Character and for Citizenship.

The great teachers have differed little in their interpretation of the objectives of education. Invariably and authoritatively they have insisted that the training of the child should be symmetrical. They have never advocated an intellectual aristocracy. They realized that intellectuality in itself is insufficient: that it must become crowned and dominated by spiritual forces. Unquestionably they exalted intellectual training: likewise the education of the emotions, impulses, desires and instincts: but paramount to all these, in a position of supreme importance, they placed the spiritual growth and development of the child. Blessed Thomas More writing four hundred years ago to 'My dear Gunnell,' the tutor of his children, said: 'Though I prefer learning joined with virtue, to all the treasures of kings, yet renown for learning, when it is not united with a good life is nothing less than splendid and notorious infamy'
