The school curriculum of to-day lies un-
der the charge, vigorously pressed at the
hands of many, of leaning to fads and
being given over to poor teaching. The
teaching of only two subjects seems to be
excepted from the general charge of incom-
petency that is often made-namely, Latin
and mathematics-and I have sometimes re-
flected upon the meaning and propriety of
the exceptions. Returning to these reflec-
tions when your courteous secretary in-
vited me to address you, I determined to
lead you over some of this ground-old and
often trod ground you may say—but never-
theless it is ground well worthy of survey-
ing again and even again.

I think the charge of fads grows partly
or wholly out of the character of work
done in the kindergartens-under which
name numerous sins are often cloaked by
well meaning, accomplished, but highly im-
practical, and often incompetent, teachers.
I am an earnest believer in the purposes
of the kindergarten, but the practical re-
sults of its operation, where I have ob-
served it, seem often to disseminate faulty
methods of observation, poor workmanship
in handicrafts and inaccuracy in thought.
It is suggested that the pure kindergarten
methods have their most important place
in connection with the schools of social set-

sion of the Central Association of Science and
Mathematics Teachers, November 25, 1904.
