CHAPTER XXVI.

SCHOOLS FOR THE TRAINING OF TEACHERS.

NOTABLE EVENTS FOR 1888-89.

NEW SCHOOLS.

In three States the legislature has provided for a new normal school. Colorado calls into existence her first school, Connecticut her second, and New York her tenth in addition to putting the sixty or seventy normal classes of the academies under the control of the State superintendent, who intends to transform them into veritable training classes for the education of teachers as far as may be done with schools having so short a session. The school at Slippery Rock, Pa., and that for colored teachers at Montgomery, Ala., bave been opened under favorable circumstances.

THE COLORADO SCHOOL.

Section 1 of the act creating a State normal school in Colorado reads as follows:

A State normal school is hereby established at or near the city of Greeley, the purpose of which shall be instruction in the science and art of teaching, with the aid of a suitable practice department, and in such branches of knowledge as shall qualify teachers for their profession : Prorided, That a donation shall be made of a site for said State normal school, consisting of forty acres of land, with a building erected thereon, according to plans and specifications furnished by the State board of education, and to cost not less than $25,000, $10,000 of which shall be paid by the State, as hereinafter provided."

The school is to be under the control of a board of six trustees appointed by the governor for a term of six years, the terms of two expiring every two years, who have also general supervision, control, and direction of its funds. They appoint the faculty and fix their salaries, and with the advice and consent of the faculty prescribe the various books to be used in the school, the courses of study and instruction (which shall in no case have fewer than three years), make all needful rules and regulations, and fix the qualifications for admission.

Every applicant for admission sball undergo an examination by the faculty, and if the applicant is not of good character or fails to pass he is to be rejected. The school is open to all persons sixteen years of age or more who are are residents of the State, and to nonresidents “upon payment of a rate of tuition to be fixed by the board." To enable residents to receive tuition free they must have signod (and filed with the board of trustees) a declaration to engage in the business of teaching in the public schools of this State."

Diplomas aro granted to such students as have completed the full course of instruction and have been recommended by the faculty after having passed an examination conducted by a board composed of the State superintendent of public instruction, a county superintendent of schools within the State, and the principal. When a certified copy of this has been filed in the office of the superintendent of the county wherein the holder designs to teach, the holder is licensed to teach in any of the public schools of the State.

The trustees are to make an annual report, which is to include, among other matters, “the attendance each day, the average attendance for each week and term, and pluring the year, the full curriculum of instruction in said school, the classification and departments thereof, the branches taught, time devoted to each, text books and apparatus in use, requirements for admission and graduation."

In addition to the $10,000 appropriated for buildings, an additional $10,000 is providod by the Stato for furnishing them.
