Support the Schools in our Program by Subscribing
Page 7 text:
One hundred years ago, during a period of widespread and shameful illiteracy in the state of
Tennessee, Governor Andrew johnson, a passionate advocate of public education, climaxed an up-
hill struggle for the support of schools by direct taxation. His tireless efforts gave Tennessee for the
first time a public school system that functioned. Since that time, although hampered and retarded
by the Wfar between the States, by years of reconstruction, and by numerous bitter political and racial
clashes, education in Tennessee has progressed tremendously. VVe have advanced from the one-room
school house, under the supervision of an overworked and sometimes incompetent schoolmaster, to
the large school building of today, where a well-trained and carefully-selected faculty offers each stu-
dent an opportunity to acquire a thorough education. As we mark the one hundredth anniversary
of our public school system in Nashville, we must show a deep respect and gratitude to the far-sighted
leaders of a century ago, who realized that education is the backbone of freedom and democracy,
and who had the will-power and stamina to Fight for public education, in order to preserve and im-
prove our way of life. It is the responsibility of the youth of today, who will be the leaders of to-
morrow, to continue this struggle, with the hope of instilling in the hearts and minds of future
generations an intense desire for education, that our way of life may never be destroyed, but that it
may prosper and remain a shining example for others.
