1. "The State pays for higher education for men and women an average of $146 per session." What proportion of this does the State spend for the higher education of women? Not one cent. The amount spent for the normal schools is spend directly in the interest of the public elementary schools. The work done in the normal schools consists of four years of high school work plus two years of professional work for those girls who complete the whole course and graduate with a full normal diploma, but out of about 1100 girls who attended the normal schools last year only about 135 graduated, so that by far the larg est proportion of those attending the normal schools are doing high school work.
