President of Teachers Attacks SomeFliwi. Wants Nope Uniformity and Leu Fads. Suggests Secretary of Bd«ca tlon ID Cabinet Sptlngfleld, Ills., Dec. ^.-President Tracy in his annual address at the oia-n- ng session of tho State Teacher*' a»so- clatlon last night, attacked the school system of the state at several points. That the Kunkakec superintendent'* views met with the approval of a major- ly of his hearers was evidenced by the demonstrations of approval that punctuated every line of thought advanced. Mr. Tracy culled attention to the "uncertainty in educational processes," and the Idea of some educator* that they must be Bealotis exponents of a »o-call- ed "fad" in order to maintain a professional reputation He recommended that th* teachers work more along the lines of uniformity, and that the tendency to dl- gross after Ill-considered Innovation* be llkcouraged The president recommended that some .revision be made by local school boards n cities to provide parental school* for :ho truants and incorrlgibles who are denied the use of the public school* The demands for such a school have been luccecsftilly met In Chicago. It may b* that the nnsnclatlon will rail upon the eglxlature to make Dome provision for such schools. NEED NATIONAL, CURRICULUM. In speaking of a public school course ot study he called attention to the need of a. national curriculum under the charge of a secretary of education. It oould be so planned that everywhere there would bo the same standard of scholarship In the same year or grade. Several attempts have been made in this state to formulate i course ot study and to have It adopted, at least for the rural districts, but to far such attempts have resulted In failure. 'Those who are '/te best prepared to know tell us that we have no system of education in this state," continued the ^resident. "We simply have a law that permits each community to educate is It pleases, as well as it pleases, or as 111 as t pleases, with a few meager Hmita tlons."
