9781330967904: Addresses Delivered Before the California Teachers' Association: At Riverside, December 28-31, 1891 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Addresses Delivered Before the California Teachers' Association: At Riverside, December 28-31, 1891

California was admitted into the Union in 1850. Its preliminary Constitutional Convention was held a year earlier. The years of its State life may be roughly divided into decades, of which only four are now complete. This division of time will afford a convenient method of grouping the events of our educational history.

I. We go back, first, to the beginnings of our school system. The foundation for this system was laid in 1849, in the Constitutional Convention at Monterey. An inviolable school fund was then established. Article IX of the Constitution said: "The Legislature shall encourage, by all suitable means, the promotion of intellectual, scientific, moral, and agricultural improvement." Section 4 of the same article directs the Legislature to care for a permanent fund for the support of a university "for the promotion of literature, the arts and sciences."

But there were schools antedating 1849. As early as October, 1847, the Town Council of San Francisco provided for the erection of a small school-house, and in April, 1848, it was occupied, with Thomas Douglass (a Yale graduate) as teacher (salary $1000 a year). There were at first six pupils; the number increased to thirty-seven, then suddenly dropped to eight.
