OUR SCHOOL BOARD AND THE TEACHERS' SALARIES. There will doubtless be a good deal of un- friendly criticism pronounced over the mem- bers of the Cadoxton and Merthyr Dovan School Board for having presumed to suggest, at their last meeting, that their staff of teachers is an inadequately paid one, but we are inclined to believe that the admission, when properly investigated, will be found to be perfectly justifiable, and that the niggardly salaries paid at present to some of the teachers, ranging from J350 to J360 a year (the latter, we believe, being the paltry pittance given by way of remuneration to some of the head teachers) are utterly incompatible with the large furure in store for the Board. We heartily agree, then, with the remark made by Mr Blackmore that the Board expect good results from the schools, and they should con- sequently pay their teachers good salaries. The matter needs nothing, by way of argu- ment, to commend it to the dictates °of reason and common sense, for it is palpably preposterous to expect a young man or woman, fairly well educated at the outset, to serve an apprenticeship of at least four years as a school teacher, then spend a course of two years at a training college, qualify for his or her certificate as a fully competent master or mistress of an elementary school, and then settle down to a life of educational worry and anxiety for the miserable consideration of less than 25s per week What labouring man (with no educational qualifications whatever) can be had to work even for 25s perweek? Then how can the School Board expect to employ a highly competent staff of teachers the services of several members of which are so parsimoni- ously compensated ?
