Էջ 105 - Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, that each town or district within this Commonwealth, containing fifty families, or householders, shall be provided with a teacher or teachers of good morals, to instruct children in orthography, reading, writing, English grammar, geography, arithmetic, and good behavior...
Էջ 6 - The Board of Education, annually, shall make a detailed report to the Legislature of all its doings, with such observations as their experience and reflection may suggest, upon the condition and efficiency of our system of popular education, and the most practicable means of improving and extending it.

This subject has its merits, which should command the attention of the statesman and political economist.
Էջ 13 - We need an institution for the formation of better teachers ; and, until this step is taken, we can make no important progress. The most crying want in this Commonwealth is the want of accomplished teachers. We boast of our schools ; but our schools do comparatively little, for want of educated instructors. Without good teaching, a school is but a name.
