THE Central Board of Education have just pub- lished a report of their proceedings for the half year ending June 30,1858, and we now proceed to submit to our readers an analysis ofthat impor- tant document. We notice one new feature in the method of preparing the report, viz., that instead of schools in towns (other than Adelaide) being as hitherto included without distinction in the suburban and country schools, they now form a distinct class. At the date of the report the fol- lowing number of teachers held licences from the Board : Males. Females. Total. In Adelaiele . 11 27 38 Suburban teachers . 11 l8 29 In towns . 5 5 10 | Country teachers . 77 19 96 Totals . 104 m 173 These numbers give a net increase of six teachers on the half-year ending December 31. 1857, and of l8 on the year ending June 30,1858. The following exhibits the attendance of children at the schools over which the above teachers preside : Boys. Adelaide Schools. 977 Suburban ditto. 7/>0 Town ditto. 406 Coun...
