Last year through a suggestion by Mr. Ritch, the Ri-oup made an extensive study of prof-res.-! reports or vhat arc more commonly known as report cards. A comprehensive •cport on the study will bo published this year. Mr. UUch ultio ittends national conferenee.M. Mr. Kitch Is proud of the salary schedule nnd personnel policies nnintnlmid In his district. ]ie({ln- nlnn teachers received an annual salary nf $2,400, and slralKht cluss- ;-oorn teachers .$•1,000. Commenting in the personnel policies, he points out that there are llbera.1 dick and Jualh benefits. In the opinion of the rural superintendent, "the most Important le ruct.or In t.ho. e.tiue.aUnual system is the teacher." Many I'roblems Some of (fie problems, which non- front Mr. Kltr.h periodically, are not much different than those iound In any single school system, but they are more numerous. However, frequently an entirely new .ype of problem must be attacked but these serve tin novel expert' onces from which to gain knowledge. One of them; unique Hltuatloris occurred recently In one of tlio rural BChooln. A family mover from n New York state town to one In Mr. Hitch's territory, and Included a little tflrl, who would not )>•; alx years of age until 'February of next year. According to regulations, a chilJ must be six years of at;e by January of llni next year to ho admitted to the first grudn. This youngster had been tlirnuKh first ttrade In I.ho New York town, but the parents strangely enough wanted the child placed In the- flrnl grade in this state. The mother insisted that (.hi child could rend extremely well ind In fact, could rend anything rom the periodical "Time". It seemed rather unusual, but. to sat- nfy the curiosity of the up and coming principal, the youngster vas presented u current copy of he magazine, nnd with the excep- .ion of a minimum of the more difficult wordo, amazed all by •nadlng several articles wllhou hesitation. Studying the matter carefully Mr. Hitch finally made a, declsloi which was no easy tank, and placed the little girl in tho second grade where ho reports she Is doing ex ccedlngly well. Wldo Field Because of his unusual position i superintendent, and by serving seven towns he ban a much largei dcopc of what should be going on. One of lil« major projects undo study at present Is the adoption o "basic reading series in the rurn ucliool system.. Althougb accusation have been made that Mr. Ritch must catei to the whims of the various off) •.ials In the towns, he actual]} imlntulmi a most Independent alt I ,ude, which In not found In places having a single superintendent o Hchools. He is proud of the fac .hat politics do not enter his llfi Mr. rtltch not only Is responsible "or knowledge of educational [irln ciples and other factors in tin leaching profession, but he aim nuat be well rend In all fundnmcn tills of government operating In the respective communities. In this mtegory, he must know about the :h(irtcrH, ordinances and othel rules and regulations, their com plete financial standings and many other details. It's difflcu mough to lonow these matt em n. concerns one town, nay nothing seven. Mr. flitch is u native of New York city, the son of Mrs. Cora Combes Ritch and the late Mr. Hlleh.
