SCHOOLMASTERS OR WHAT?

TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —As there is so much in the papers lately about schoolmasters, it may uot be oixt. o£ place to bring before the public tsonre of the doings of a certain head-teacher uot 100 miles from a suburban district. Every year before the inspectors visit the school the very life is worried out of the little ones. For instance, they have to bo in school at nine all the year, which is half an hour earlier than the town schools; they only get half an hour at mid-day to have lunch ; after that they are kept in school till five, some days a little earlier. I nearly forgot to mention that the children are to be kept in all day on Saturday, tho 17th lust., to prepare for their final flutter on Tuesday, 20th inst.— I am, etc., A Parent. St. Leonards, August 20. [The School Committee of the district can effect a prompt remedy if they desire.— Ed. E.S.]
