.MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 19 · 1937 ELEVEN [ ' 5 « ROBINSON TALKS ABOUT SCHOOLS IN OTHER LANDS Michigan Educator Speaks to Convention of North Iowa Teachers. William McKinley Robinson, director of the rural education department of Western State Teachers college, Kalamazoo, Mich., Friday addressed the teachers ori "Schools in Olher Lands," giving Ills impressions gained from visiting the schools and studying the systems of about 15 countries. "I will neither attempt to criticize these schools nor compare them to our own, because each school system has a civilization into which lhat system Jits," said Mr. Robinson, who discussed principally the schools of Europe be- cause of lack o£ lima on the program. "One must have the background of each country to understand its school system. In Europe there is a difference in the psychology of the people than here. Most of the work is done by man power instead of by machinery. There is a veneration for the aged that we do not have. They think in terms of the old instead of the present, while in America we seldom tolerate much that has age. Don't Have Hush. "It is hard for us to place ourselves in that position of veneration of the aged. They don't have the rush and hurry so prevalent in America. They take plenty of time in which to live. And there is ever the feeling of insecurity from nations across the border. "People in Europe today are thinking of the time when their six days, with school hours from 8 o'clock in the morning . to 1 o'clock in the afternoon. In the higher schools the pupils go in the afternoon only because they want to. "Teachers find themselves community leaders in Europe and they find themselves in rather the same position as the old family doctor o£ rural areas. Yet they are rather aloof from the people. Teachers as a rule have their di%'ing quarters at the school and are independent of community thought. Teachers ot Europe are considered as persons to work with, the same as a pencil or an' eraser, when the pupils need. them. There the pupils predominate," Mr. Robinson praised the schools of Mexico and the system of South Africa, but' he regretted that in those communities there was no such thing as parent-teacher asso- Clear Lake Globe-Gazette OFFICE PHONE 239 LUCIA A.

Even I ciations--or local interest, which the younger generation is eager to ' ' go to war. "In the modern schools of Europe sve find systems of teaching more like we have here, where the individuality of the child is developed and there is freedom for the potential possibilities of that child. In these schools the originality of the child has the same op- portunity'as in this country. "But in Europe they do not alue new equipment. They still use the same wooden benches used for hundreds of years--where six children sit on a bench. It never occurs to them that they should change this. Teachers Know Subjects. "Not much emphasis is placed on books either, for the teachers know the material and don't need textbooks. I must pay tribute to the thoroughness of their teachers in mastering the material they are teaching, although it is true many of. the books are of a type we would not fhink of using. "Most of the schools are not coeducational. The boys and girls are separated in the school system's early in the lower grades. Men predominate a m o n g the teachers in almost the same proportion that women predominate in this country. A dignity is associated with the teacher that is in a class with the professional people, for the teachers are selected by the government at an early agt- and trained thoroughly for then positions. The teachers are paid by the national government in most cases rather than by communities ana! they are paid on yearly basis. School Year Round. . "Some schools in Europe are | conducted the year round. Vaca| tions are taken at the most convenient times for all concernec and the school week consists o 3ptometnsts Will Meet at Des Moines A number ot Mason City and 'Jorlh Iowa optometrists will at- end the annual convention of he Iowa Optometric association o be held in Des Moines in connection with the Educational Congress starting Sunday.
