Education In the South ,
The Constitution today presents the first of a series of
articles dealing with the general topic of education in the
South. These have bggn prepared with the collaboration of
one of the nation’s most distinguished educators, a man born
and educated in the South, a man of our own origins, im-
pregnated with the spirit of the South, yet .fully conversant
with our shortcomings as well as our advantages.
The fundamental truth is, if we have the Vpurage to face
it, that children educated in the South have leis opportunity
for the best of schooling than children of other sections of
the country. The South, speaking of schools, is a section
of extremes. Some of the finest schools in the nation are
located in southern states—and some of the poorest.
No blame can be attached to southerners as a whole for
poor school conditions; For the truth is the south spends a
greater proportion of its income on education than any other
part of the country. The trpuble is the income of the aver-
age southern state is so much lower than many others that
it would take every penny raised in taxation, in any form,
to give our children equal school advantages with those of
some richer sections.
It has been stated, for instance, if Mississippi spent every
penny of state income, leaving nothing for roads, for health,
for welfare, for maintenance of the state government, she
would still not equal the amount, per 1.000 of population
spent by Massachusetts on schools.
. The result of such conditions is simply that, in the poorer
states, that guarantee of equal opportunity which is intrinsic
to the American ideal is worthless, means nothing, to the
children. For where can there be equality of opportunity
when school opportunities are not equal?
Wherein lies the remedy is yet to be seen. - It may mean
sacrifice of some ancient shibboleths to which the south has
long clung. It may mean revolutionary changes in our meth-
ods of financing our school systems.
Whatever the necessity, if it gives to our children equality
in education and, hende, equality in opportunity in life, it
