Excerpt from A Hand Book: Containing Suggestions and Programs for Community Social Meetings at Rural School HousesThis bulletin is not a call to arms but a summons to service and to opportunity. There is nothing in the law of West Virginia to require any teacher to undertake the service herein suggested, but we believe that there are thousands of West Virginia teachers who are bigger in their sympathies and ambition than a salary draft, and we believe that the appeal to such teachers will be strong.In my judgment the opportunities for good to the state and of growth to the individual teacher in this service are limitless. I am therefore confidently expecting a large and enthusiastic response. Let no teacher misunderstand the purpose of this bulletin. In undertaking the work proposed it would be a mistake to follow the outline very closely. The very essence of the project is research and initiative, and many teachers will doubtless be able to devise better plans than those mentioned herein. In such cases the teachers by all means should develop their own plans. It is possible that in some cases the teachers will prefer to give most of the time to night schools such as have been carried on so successfully in Rowan county, Kentucky. In other cases, agriculture or some other community study may seem advisable. In still other cases other features may be enlarged on and the program adjusted to suit the individual needs. There are many communities where great good would be accomplished if the meetings result in a permanent agricultural organization and it is hoped that the advantages of such an undertaking may not be overlooked. The main tiling is to put into the work the spirit of exploration, of application, of patience and of energy. If you succeed in some phases of the work you will be a teacher of the world, for as vet the world knows but little of what may be accomplished by the rural school as a social center.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
