power, some say autocratic . This,
being the case, our American democ-
racy is frequently if not usually auto-
cratic in practice The schools then

Again, our democracy is not ab-
solute ' in that the. common citizens
have very little to say about certain
things in which they are considerably
interested, mainly in a commercial
way. We are indebted to Dean Bal-
liet for the reminder that there is in
this country an autocracy of irre-
sponsible powers. A few gentlemen
in Chicago absolutely control the
prices of meats in every city of the
country. A few others fin New York
likewise fix the prices of coal for the
Attacks on Supervision
A study of the complaints against
autocratic control of the schools
shows, in my opinion, that except for
negligible fault-finding, the bulk of
the criticism is in reality complaints
against supervision and that largely
of the faulty kind. Such faults are
in the person of the supervisor and
not necessary to supervision.
President Owen of the Chicago
Normal school says, "The professional
life of a teacher should not be gov-
erned by thie mere personal opinion
of a superintendent. There must be
some way of reighing his judgment
so that it can be accepted. And I
should add that the success of a sup-
ervisor or superintendent should not
be determined by the mere personal
opinion of a teacher or group of teach-
ers. There must be some way of
weighing their judgment so that it
can be accepted. All this is a plea
for scientific measurement.
Co-operation should be the word
and not democracy, and the wise sup-
erintendent will capitalize the talent
of his force and use it to the limit.
He will, meet this public clamor for
dempcracy by initiating the forma-
tion of councils of the teachers whose
business will be to aid him along the
lines of their desires and abilities.'
The results of councils among the
teachers are at least three; first, to
broaden and educate the teachers in
school administration and school
policies; second, to make them real-
ize the impracticability of some of
their unofficial ideas; third, to con-
siderably increase the sources of con-
In such councils the superintend-
ent and teachers meet on common
ground occupied by representatives
of all groups. Some councils should
have their meetings without the pres-
ence of any executive. The super-
intendent should use his teachers in
the formation of policies and when
he 's voluntarily governed by their
suggestions we shall have one ex-
ample of government by the consent
of the governed.
Personality and personal fitness for
the job are still the main points and
of even greater importance than the
system employed. Any method that
will improve one's personality or per-
sonal fitness will be the best. I be-
lieve that method to be co-operation.
But if we are not to adopt thought-
lessly a popular slogan and practice,
of what importance is this hint for
practicing democracy in school ad-
ministration and how shall we con-
duct ourselves? The American teach-
er has been treated wrongly. As a
group, she has been poorly paid and
poorly respected. She has sometimes
been depri'ved of initiative, poorly
supervised, and not visited or super-
vised enough. And all these things,
must be corrected. If those who have
the responsibility for school policies
do not make the corrections, then the
teachers or the public are likely to
The superintendent should use the
talents of his associates and share
his responsibilities with them but he

occasional consultations and wish the
executive to be a leader rather than
a servant of them.
It will be noted that the superin-
tendent who carries out to the ex-
treme his ideas of self-government
among the teachers does not in this
way free himself from any of his re-
sponsibilities. And it is a matter of
course that he will reserve to him-
self the right to take the privilege of
self-direction from any member of
his force whom he considers un-
But what shall we say of the re-
mark that "slaves cannot teach free
men democracy?" Merely this: teach-
ers who demand control of thesschools
do not understand democracy as it
has been explained in the foregoing.
Those who do understand it and un-
derstand also co-operation and are
actuated by the spirit of service will
know how to train children to take
only their proper share of control and
then to exercise that share effectively.
Some of the unprofitable and im-
proper things under the guise of de-
mocracy may here be nted: clamor
against supervision; habitual fault-
finding; trying to secure recognition
by stampede methods; tendency to-
ward unionism and the less admirable
practices of unionism; too easy ap-
proach to the superintendent of the
sort that always allows the principal
to be ignored and his authority un-
dermined; any understanding that the
superintendent alone or the body of
teachersalone may veto the action of
The teachers should not have power
to veto the action of the superintend-
ent, but on the other hand no wise
superintendent would ever find It
necessary to ignore the wishes of all
Methods of Control
There are many practical ways of
giving teachers a proper and profi-
table share in the conduct of school
affairs, but first of all a protetorate
must beestablished. The superintend-
ent must give his attention to estab-
lishing system, and after this he may
occupy himself with determining the
talents of his force and with a division
of responsibility as well as labor, re-
membering that the best kind of
teachers' council exists to advise the
superintendent and should be invited
to do so.
Further steps follow: appointing
committees to make a course of study;
to select and design furniture and
equipment; to draft requirements gov-
erning allowances of pay during i1-
ness; to study and make recommenda-
tions concerning a twelve months'
school, especially regarding the ad-
justment of salary to the ten and
twelve-month plans; to draft report
forms and to arrange for publicity in
any phase of the school activities; to
control the school library and another
to determine the selection of desirable
objects of art; allowing credit to
teachers for practical suggestions for
bettering the schools; forming a
council1of teachers with representa-
tion on the senate, (the body of ad-
visors to the executive); a teachers'
association; inviting individuals and
committees to appear before the board
