At the meeting of the Department of Superintendence (of the National Teachers' As. sociation), lately held in Washington, some eighteen States were represented. The papers presented are well spoken of, and their publication is probable. Ohio, Illinois, and Missouri were represented, but not Wisconsin.
GOVERNOR ROBINSON, of New York, discourses thus, on Normal Schools; he is evidently in need of a little normal education himself:
So far as I can learn, the Normal Schools established in various parts of the State, with two or three exceptions, are wholly useless, and fail almost entirely to accomplish the ob- . jects for which they were established, and for which the State is annually paying large amounts of money. I recommend an inquiry into the workings of these institutions, and a discontinuance of those which fail to accomplish the purposes of their establishment.
