POSITION OF Dl APPLICANTS. Some discussion ensued at last .evening's meeting of the City Schools' Committee on the subject of the statue of teachers holding Dl certificates with regard to appointments for inspectorships or city headmasterships. The chairman (Mr P. M. Mackay) moved the following resolution: "That the City Schools Committee-beg to draw the attention of the Board of Education to the injustice which is likely to be inflicted on Dl teachers of over 20 years' continued efficient 'Service-if-ihey are to be debarred, as indicated by the remarks of the chairman of the Board of Education, from applying for a headmastership of a city school or school of like standing." Mr Mackay said that they were at one with the Board in trying to raise the standard of efficiency in teachers, but it should not be made retrospective at the expense of teachers with 20 years' continued efficiency. There were undoubtedly many men who did not possess the Trighest academic qualifications and were yet very able teachers, and when a vacancy occurred they should not be handicapped owing to their lesser qualifications, but should be allowed to apply for the position as well as a Cl man. As a matter of equity the Dl teacher of 20 years' continued efficiency should not have his claim to promotion overlooked. While the Cl man was on a higher plane with regard to academic qualifications, the Dl man might be as efficient a teacher. The motion was seconded by Mr F. E. N. Gaudin and carried unanimously. On the suggestion of Mr Mackay. it was decided to write congratulating Mr C. A. Pu'rdie, late inspector of schools, but now a member of the Education Board, upon having secured the adoption by the Board of his promotion scheme.
