THE

Ohio Journal of Education.

COLUMBUS, JANUARY, 1854.

Introductory.

NOTHER eventful year in the history of our Association and

of the schools of the State has closed. One of the great objects at which we aimed when the Journal was commenced, and to which one year since we looked forward with such intense solicitude, has been accomplished. A School Law, almost unparalleled, in the liberality of its provisions, has been enacted. A party largely in the majority, and claiming this as one of its measures, is fully committed to the maintenance of the great, leading features of the law, and, have ing elected to the office of Commissioner the man of its choice, is bound to sustain him, in carrying the system which it introduces into efficient operation.

Our Association is thus relieved from a portion of the labor which it has for some years past seemed called to perform. But there is yet much to be done : much which a voluntary agency like ours can, better than any other, accomplish. As an Association it is ours to see to it, that such a public sentiment is created as will fully sustain every wise measure which judicious legislation has introduced, or may yet propose, for the improvement of the schools of our state ; and as individual Teachers, it is the privilege of those employed in public schools, to make the schools with which they are connected such models of efficiency and usefulness, that our present excellent system of Free Classified Public Schools shall continue to rise higher in the estimation of the people, and extend its influence till it shall reach and bless every hamlet in the State.

We trust it is not necessary to assure its patrons that the Journal will continue to be faithfully devoted to the great objects for which it was established; and we confidently expect that those who called it into existence, will continue to it a generous patronage, will labor to enlarge the sphere of its influence, and freely contribute to its pages.

VOL. III, No. 1.

Answers to Questions on the School Law.

BY THE COMMISSIONER OF COMMON SCHOOLS ELÉCT.

DR. LORD :—Upon several questions of construction arising under the provisions of the new School Law, my opinion has been requested and given. The subjoined are, in substance, the questions proposed, and the answers returned :

1. Are the members of township boards entitled by law to receive compensation for their services ?

This question is unhesitatingly answered in the negative.

2. How is the township clerk to be paid for making an abstract of the enumeration returned to him ?

By the township: as for other services of like nature rendered as township clerk.

3. When the directors neglect to take the enumeration, and the township clerk employs and pays a person to do it, how is the clerk to reimburse himself?

Charge the amount so paid in account with the township; and then proceed to collect it of the delinquent directors, and credit the amount 80 collected to the school fund of the township.

4. Are township boards authorized by law to determine what text books shall be used in the several common schools in their township; and have they a right to confine their selections to one author on each subject ?

These questions are both answered in the affirmative without any hesitation.

5. What shall be done with those directors who will not abide by the decision of the township boards in regard to text books?

Endeavor to conciliate, if possible, their coöperation, by showing them the importance of leaving this delicate matter to the judgment of the township board, and not to the caprice or preference of every itinerant teacher that may chance to be employed. Failing in this, the township board could proceed against them by quo warranto, which would raise the question of authority, and the decision being against the reluctant directors, a writ of mandamus would bring them to a sense of duty.

6. Is a teacher, who enters into a contract to teach a Union or other
