Excerpt from Annual Report of the Town Officers of Fitzwilliam, N. H: For the Year Ending March 1, 1880
Such was the condition of our schools when Illinois sent here for models. How is it now? The School Association long since dead; district meetings neglected; agents chosen ... by rota tion, or speculation; and little or nothing said about the teacher, or the best interests of the district. The number of visits to the schools dwindling from over a thousand, to four hundred and forty-six the present vear.
Fellow Citizens, these things must not go on so! You must wake up, and bestir yourselves. It is one of the first and most sacred duties of every American citizen, to look after his own school district, to attend every meeting, and especially the an nual meeting, to exert themselves to the utmost to get the best agent, one who has a deep interest in school affairs, who will cheerfully do his utmost to have a good school, one who does not take the office for pecuniary advantage, one who is interest ed in having a capable teacher, and so looks forward in his zeal.
