Give 7 , 000 , 000 a Chance [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1918
Give 7 , 000 , 000 a Chance Continued from page 8 training whatever . In some states sixty per cent have only a seventh grade education with no professional preparation . In some states eignty per cent have only an eighth grade education with no professional training . In some states eighty per cent have never seen a state normal school . This neglect on the part of the American people in the preparation of teach-, ers for rural schools is criminal . To make amends , let a federal statute be enacted , followed by cooperative state statutes , with as little delay as nossible . This statute , for the purpose of cooperating with the states in the improvement of rural schools in the payment of salaries of professionally trained teachers , should appropriate for the fiscal year ending June 30 , 1920 , the sum of ten million dollars , or so much as may be necessary , and annually thereafter increase the appropriation one million dollars annually until for the fiscal year ending June 30 , ...

WHAT CONSOLIDATION MEANS Better Rural Education is a War—and After the War—Measure IT is unfortunate mat tbe use of tne word consolidation when applied to uniting or centralizing two or more rural school districts for the purpose of improving conditions should he considered a term of ill omen . To some school patrons and tax payers the word immediately conveys the idea of eliminating the precious little one-teacher , one-room school building so near to the home .

The United States Bureau of Education defines consolidation as a term used when two or more school districts are made into a single district , one school in one building or possibly in several buildings , replacing two or more smaller schools in several buildings . Ohio uses centralized to indicate what , in other states , is known as consolidated schools . Other terms , such as union schools or union graded schools , are used w...

CONSOLIDATION IN INDIANA [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1918
CONSOLIDATION IN INDIANA All aboard for home after a happy day in a Randolph county consolidated school What the Consolidated School Has Meant to Randolph County—By Lee Driver RANDOLPH county is purely agricultural , having only two small cities and a few small towns . At least ninety-nine per cent of its 28 , 000 inhabitants are American born . Its schools were originally situated at the cross-roads and were two miles apart . There were 131 one-room schools located in the 460 square miles of territory . They were poorly equipped , poor buildings unkept school grounds , dilapidated outbuildings in short typical one-room schools . The county superintendent had taught in these schools , his last term being twelve years before his election as county superintendent ten years ago .

A Southern Bugle Blast [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1918
A Southern Bugle Blast OUR folks in North Carolina , South Carolina , Virginia , and Georgia ought to absolutely double their school taxes during the coming year . It may be popular to say this , or it may he unpopular . All we know is that it is the truth , and that the man who doesnt agree with this statement will agree with it before a dozen years pass . With cotton at 20 to 25 cents a pound and tobacco and peanuts selling at corresponding figures , it is folly to say that we cant do more for our schools . And we ought to be ashamed of ourselves if we dont do more . We have got to face the fact that when it comes to choosing between saving money and buying knowledge for the children the Yankee everlastingly puts us to shame . The North Atlantic states spend $ 50 . 55 per year on schools per child ; the South Atlantic states $ 18 . 91—not 40 per cent as much . The North central states spend $ 44 . 15 per child ; the South central states $ 19 . 01—not half as much . North Dakota , ...

AN OHIO COUNTY CONSOLIDATES Good Laws and Intelligent Campaigns Bring Results—By W . S . Fogarty S OME conditions in Preble county , Ohio , before the consolidation movement began were : a wealthy agricultural county of good roads ; seven villages with modern schools ; many poor boxcar one-room buildings in rural districts ; and only one of the townships with full time supervision .

We planned to consolidate as large areas as possible and in no case has the territory consolidated been less than one-half of a congressional township . If a village was located right the rural district about and the village were consolidated . First we sought the help of the school officials , the teachers and influential patrons . Elections were called upon petition of the people and not by the county board of education nor the local board . This method has two advantages : first , th...
