THE SCHOOL STRIKES.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, Hearing so much lately about "school strikes" and about home lessons, I may state that £ quite sympathise with the children for being so brave as to stand up for what they think is right. I ako wish to state that I know one case where a child, eleven years of age, has to start lessons at seven o'clock and work on till about ten every evening. 'Now, Mr Editor, I really think that this is too much for any child of the age I mention. Children of her age ought to have but few or no home lessons. I also think that when a child has worked for, say, five hours of the day on lessons that the rest of the day ought to be her own. Hoping that there will bo a change in the school and that the children's grievance may be promply remedied—l am, etc., L.6. Dunedin, October 19.
