Seite 6 - Were it necessary to give up either the primaries or the university, I would rather abandon the latter, because it is safer to have a whole people respectably enlightened than a few in a high state of science and the many in ignorance. This last is the most dangerous state in which a nation can be.
Seite 39 - I furthermore give to you the power, in case twothirds of the trustees shall at any time, after the lapse of thirty years, deem it expedient, to close this trust, and of the funds which at that time shall be in the hands of yourselves and your successors, to distribute not less than two-thirds among such educational or literary institutions, or for such educational purposes as they may determine, in the States for whose benefit the income is now appointed to be used. The remainder may be distributed...
Seite 59 - ... its love of living concrete forms, and distaste for abstractions ; its irrepressible imagination ; its active but feeble intellect. All these are psychological facts relating to the minds to be taught. Next comes the art of teaching, its conditions and processes: — In general, how to unfold a subject from its elementary principles : how to awaken interest and excite curiosity ; how to create a sense of propriety, and form a pure taste ; how to transmute the lower into higher motives ; how to...
Seite 54 - Canada line, worked up by steam or water power, and returned aud sold here at lower rates than we can manufacture them. Hand labor is of but little account ; brain work has the ascendency everywhere. Even in so simple a work as that of making boots and shoes, not less than seventeen patented inventions are now used. Crimping, stitching, sewing, pegging, eyeleting, riveting are done in less time than it would require to describe the process. One woman can make the eyelet holes of 1,440 pairs of shoes...
Seite 57 - The objection has been made to normal schools, that knowledge is what the teacher needs, and that our literary institutions furnish it best. This is only half of what the teacher needs, and much the easier half You will find twenty who have this qualification where you find one who knows how to teach and govern. This assertion is made, not from a theoretical point of view, but from a iarge experience and observation.
Seite 51 - ... and vulgar and commonplace conversation ? I need not ask what are the occupations of such families. They will be of the plainest and coarsest kind. . The arts will be of the rudest sort. That skill, which in this age is an essential element of prosperity, will be wanting. The sad story to be told of this class is that individual life is dull, monotonous, and unthinking ; home life, coarse, blunt, and uninviting ; social life, low and unimproving ; civil life, jealous, selfish, and quarrelsome...
Seite 57 - Schools, could not be induced to appoint as teacher a young man just from College without a Normal training. This is the more remarkable as the members of the Boards were themselves generally College graduates. It was found by trial that a knowledge of what is commonly taught in learned schools is not all that a teacher needs.

Seite 55 - So men think the readiest-made teachers are cut-down men of other employments. We have hundreds of such teachers, not one of whom has the slightest doubt of his fitness for the office. In the great demand for them, caused by the multiplication of schools, many unsuitable persons will be likely to be employed, for want of better. Students, sometimes, who have no aptitude nor love for the occupation, will submit temporarily to the unwelcome task, for the sake of replenishing their purses. Persons out...
