PUBLIC EDUCATION IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 February 1858
PUBLIC EDUCATION IN TASMANIA. The principle of Public Education has been always recognized and acted upon in this colony, and a large sum has been annually voted by the Legislature for the purpose. Till the commencement of 1857 all the public educational establishments were under tim control of one Board of Education, which sut periodically, at. Hobart Town; and till the yeur 1850 the duties of Inspector and Secretary were performed by one mid the same person. It was then found that the number of schools had so much increased that it was impossible a proper supervision could be exercised, mid the examinations conducted regularly at stated periods, unless some inciense was mude in elie Education Department. Consequently at the beginning of 1836 the Inspector was relieved of n portion of his duties, by a gentleman being appointed to the office of Secretnry, to act alto as Assistant Inspector. This change was productive of much greater efficiency in the working of the schools, as inspe...
