EDUCATION, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE.
The esteem for education by the citizens of
Dallas is evidenced by unusual attention and
patronage given to the public schools and the
many private institutions in the city. The
public free-school system of Dallas is equal
to any in the South. It is now under the
efficient superintendency of Prof. T. G. Harris,
an eminent scholar and an able educator.
To his predecessor, however (assisted by
Prof. Harris), Prof. J. T. Hand, a superior
scholar and an excellent educator, beloved by
all who remained under his supervision and
esteemed as highly by the citizens of Dallas
as any educator could be, may to very large
degree be attributed, by his successful arrangement
and training of these schools, the high
excellence which they have attained.
The high-school curriculum aims at preparing
students for the State University at
Austin, which by a provision of the forefathers
of Texas is made the apex of the State
free-school system. The scholastic term lasts
nine months in each year, and the public is
not wanting in appreciation of the excellent
work that has been and is being done in
these schools. There are large, handsome
buildings erected in different portions of the
city accessible and convenient to the pupils
of each locality. The buildings are not only
imposing in structure but also handsomely
apportioned within, at great cost to the city,
in order obtain every comfort and convenience.
These are public free schools, established by
the citizens of the city for the education of
the masses free, so as to make them better capable
of discharging their duties to themselves
and to society. This system has not
been established for many years, and the success
as realized this short time is marvelous.
One admirable feature about them is that the
colored population here has every advantage
Here’s what’s next.
