THE HIGH SCHOOL QUESTION.
Armstrong School Report.
A New Institution.
J. M. Wright Replies to Statements
of W. S. Burnett.
To Editor Armstrong Advance,
Dear Sir:
In reading over W, S. Burnett's
letter in your last issue, there are
one or two statements made which
I think should not be allowed to
pass without some comment. I
refer more particularly to that portion of his letter where he talks
about starting a one horse high
school and saddling the greater
part of the debt on the rural community, 1 don't know where Mr.
Burnett got his idea about n one
horse high school, as that is not
the kind of a school advocated, but
one that is up-to-date in every respect is what we require, and only
by the help of the whole of the
rural school districts in the municipality can this be accomplished,
Now with regard to the middling
part of it. perhaps il will surprise
Mr. Burnett to know that the Armstrong Bchool district will payout.1-
quarter of tlle assessment of the
whole six districts,  leaving three
quarters to I itributud by the
other live nut much saddling
about that, ll may further surprise M r. Burnett to know that ill
the present time mil of tlle eleven
pupils who are now taking high
school work lour are from the
Armstrong district and seven from
ih tsitle districts, That. I think,
completely knocks out his theory
that it would be of no more advantage had it, been located in
Vancouver.
It might be as well to say that
the starting and erection of a high
school for the municipality would
be no detriment to the consolidating of the public schools, as they
would still be distinctly different
schools, but what I contend is that
we are ready and want the high
school and cannot afford to wnii
until we have 11 consolidated
system,
It is a certainty that unless we
can get the high school established
either by renting   or   building   it
will have to  cense after  the  holidays, as it cannot be expected that
the principal shall devote so much .,           ..     ,   .                           ,     , , ,,-, ■ ,-.,„,.,„,,.,
