The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 79

Our National Educational System

Our National Educational System.

This system, which with all its [unclear: sho] comings has proved itself such a [unclear: blessing] to the people of this [unclear: country], so generally valued in the minds [unclear: of] as to be looked upon as a lasting insetitution, free from all possible [unclear: danger] of assault. But we should not be [unclear: too] [unclear: sa] upon this point. There are not [unclear: want] ing signs that when opportunity [unclear: appears] to serve attempts will be [unclear: made] impair its usefulness, if not [unclear: indeed] endanger its stability. Whether [unclear: the] movement in this direction will [unclear: development] during this election, or will be [unclear: defer] until after the composition of [unclear: the] House is ascertained, a few [unclear: weeks] tell. With the knowledge [unclear: that] an attack is in the minds [unclear: of] I had prepared a [unclear: consideration] amount of matter to lay before [unclear: you] bearing upon the subject, but, [unclear: pending] the probable development [unclear: referred] I will confine myself for the [unclear: presention] to the mere statement that, [unclear: whether] Parliament or out of it, I will do a [unclear: mad] full share in defending the [unclear: system] it now stands from assaults from [unclear: when] ever quarter springing. The only [unclear: chance] I desire to see in the educational [unclear: facil] ties afforded to our children goes in [unclear: the] direction of so linking up our [unclear: primary] secondary, and University systems [unclear: in] such A way as to dovetail into [unclear: es] other, and allow of instruction [unclear: in] three stages to be free of charge [unclear: from] bottom to top.
