To the Editor of the County Times AND poST. Sir,—In a recent number of your that temporary, attention wa? drawn to t ie unless subscriptions towards the Ne^\ *^1 mediate School buildings be obtained by the c-> .1(1 C1' rO 25th, the amount due for such building o.eIieral County Governing Body-will lapse to nurrent fund. This is similarly true of Welshpoo • rP. reports convince us that there is a ^,artiv to specting the schools here. This is B^u' ignorance concerning the Welsh Interme< 1 yg}jjre cation Act of 1889. aud or the Montgoni^ S"heme in particular, and partly conditions under which secondary ct uc £ ortoer, carried on in England. With regard to ie^ tj|0gt' the Act evidently contemplates only helpinn who help themselves. As the schools not °nJ a local rate of id. in the but a 1 rea»ur^ equal to the amount so raised—it was t'jOU"oUUt of any district would gladly raise a. certain arn jarY money for a sui'.able building, in which s^ecjeDtly education, so amply endowed, could be e carried on. Considering the inestimab e jfc tages which accrue to a district under t »s 0ple cannot be supposed for a moment that the. P pltSS of Welshpool will let the golden opportunrtr If of subscribing adequately to the new schoo^^ the money cannot be raised, it can only b letter crass ignorance, which it is the object of tai to remove. With regard to the second poia secondary schools in England-nearly all our I::> &e" public schools-Eton, Harrow, Shrewsbury^ are charitable foundations; the building an were paid for out of private, in some by public, monies. fn our town, in rapldl) gbeen ing towns, excellent secondary schools ^aVgeCOnd- built entirely by private munificence. The s Oo ary schools in England have no local ra > Government grant; all that has been dOf tbe been through the energy and generosity I' case, people who benefited by them. Takeanothe our viz., that of the' Higher University EducatIon tbOSe Colleges, both for men and women, not on J -jge, of the older Universities, Oxford and ^.aII1^yale0> but those of the newest University, viz., It is have been built largely by private donations- n Hsll a truism that anyone who goes through an E 1Iot public school course and the University doe u1l' pay the full cost of his education. In fortunately, either we were too poor, or we I in grasp the necessity for endowing educate y is either case the fact remains that the princip9, curiously destitute of educational endowing > the inevitable result that secondary educati0^ seriously suffered. A good education is exp If the parents pay little for it in these Schools it is because the State by the Wels" e mediate Educatii n Act has acknowledged t that the people cannot afford the full cost. t øJI this splendid Act, this provision for endowm6 to be null and void because the people of We J10 are so blind to its advantages that they WI raise a paltry £ 1,000?—I am, &c., July, 1896.
