"It has been noticed in some of our schools, that the larger young men were unwilling to belong to a reading and spelling class, choosing to devote all their time to "cyphering" or other higher studies." The Committee goes on to discuss the importance of being able to read well. The schools also show a very low attendance rate. The Committee also suggests that parents be involved in the education of their children. Sounds like things have not changed much. Light foxing and soiling. Very good condition.. First Edition.
