We understand that school teachers
partly and school boards generally
are down on the Star for the icono
clastic way in which it uses the ham
mer on their totems. Yet, every few few-days
days few-days we manage to prize one or an
other of them loose from an admission
of some idea we have advanced. A
year ago, when the scarcity of teach teacher?
er? teacher? was beginning to be felt, we sug suggested
gested suggested that there were plenty of peo
ple in the country who could teach and
who would be willing to teach at the
salaries the board could afford to pay
without adding to the taxes of the
people, and were informed that it
couldn't be done because of the law.
When the legislature met last April
the law could have been changed if
there had been anybody in it willing
to look after school affairs from the
people's standpoint. Now. a school
official confesses to us that there are
plenty of men and women in the coun county
ty county who can teach, and whom he would
be glad to see teaching, because with without
out without them there are not enough teach teachers,
ers, teachers, but the law shuts them out. The
fact of the business is that the school
teachers of the state have induced the
legislature to adopt the "closed shop'
system. In a good many of our little
rural communities there are not
enough children to warrant providing
it with a licensed teacher, yet in each
of those communities there is gener generally
ally generally some man or woman who can in instruct
struct instruct the children in the lower
branches, and would gladly do so for
a small remuneration. There used to
be such schools all over the country,
and many of our most brainy men and
women began their education in them.
And in the towns Ocala for in instance;
stance; instance; there are a number of young
women, either high school graduates,
or who have reached some of the
higher grades, who are amply compe competent
tent competent to teach younger students all or
nearly all they have learned. But the
law shuts them out. The result is that
the licensed teachers are overworked,
and not able to give full attention to
the students; the people are overtaxed
and can't obtain for their children the
education they pay for. We think the
law should be amended, so that any
school board, when an emergency
arises, can employ people who in its
opinion are competent to teach. It is
our opinion that such a policy would
be good not only for the taxpayers
but for the teachers, because it would
give those of talent a better opportu
nity to work their way upward. We
are informed that teachers in FJorida
schools are now so much overtasked
attending to the present scholars that
they have no time for their own neces
sary studies. In every business or
profession where men or women work
for public pay, it is well to demand a
standard of efficiency and issue cer
tificates or license therefor, but the
closed shop, iron-clad system does not
work well in either public or private
