Educational Matters.

At the Education Board's meeting on Thursday the offer of the Lougbeach Road Board to allow the use of their office for School purposes, at £1 a month was accepted. The Appointments Committee re-' ported the appointment of Mr McTeague to the mastership of Hinds school. A motion.by .Mr E G. Wright was carried as.follows-—-"That no contribution be made by this Board towards the; support i of* >of r aided schools unless,' the teachers in" ■ charge have been appointed by or approved of by the Board." Mr Meredith's motion was also carried. It ran as follows :— | "That' r this' Board recommends the Minister of Education that, inasmuch as there is one system of education throughout the colony, there should be one uniform system of examination, and to this effect the standard test cards now prepared by the different Inspectors should be prepared by the central Education Department, sent under seal to the different Boards, and then by them handed to the Inspectors. This would secure more uniformity of examination, would be more satisfactory to the teaching profession, and less liable to produce friction between the Inspectors and the teachers in the employ of the different Boards." Mr Joyce's motion re school books was also' carried. - The original motion as' proposed by Mr Joyce was "(1) That from and- after January 1, 1891, 2tliere shall c uniformity of reading books and text books in the public schools of the North Canterbury district; in order to lessen the cost which parents are put to in purchasing neAV bdoks when removing their children from one school district to another school district; and to show tins Board by the Inspectors' examination from one set of text books and reading books the relative progress of different schools. (2) That the Secretary and the Inspectors be requested to name in a report, to be furnished at the next meeting of this Board, such reading books and text books as will be most suitable for the use of the schools." After some discussion the motion was altered to read as follows, and was passed in its amended form : — "That a Committee consisting, of, the Chairman, Messrs "Wright, -Anson, Weston and Meredith, be appointed to consider'to what extent uniformity of reading books and text books in the public schools of the North Canterbury district can be secured, in order to lessen the cost which parents are put to in purchasing new books when removing their children from one school district to another school district,' arid to report to this Board."
