The High School is an important part of the Public School system.
In it our boys and girls are prepared not only for college but for their general life activities.
From it a large number of the teachers for the elementary schools are drawn.
Hence, it is incumbent upon the State to provide some place where young women of moderate means can get that training which fully qualifies them for high school teaching.
This training should represent four years of work above high school graduation.
The work should consist of subject matter of college grade, strong courses in education and in methods, together with practice teaching in a high school connected with an elementary school.
The high school teacher should have four years of life in a professional atmosphere, surrounded by fellow-students who are preparing themselves to teach and taught by instructors who keep constantly in mind the fact that they are training teachers. 1
