Excerpt from Compulsory Education: Extract From the Report of the Board of Public Charities of the State of Pennsylvania, for 1871

In the report of this Board for 1870, the last topic presented was that of "neglected children." The Legislature was then appealed to, by the highest considerations of the interest and duty of the State, to make provision for their care and education. "The average of social virtue, dignity and wealth," it was then said, "is much reduced by the presence of this debased and debasing ingredient. And it is a problem well worthy of the gravest and most patient thought of philanthropic political economists, whether anything, and (if anything) what can be done for the rescue of these unfortunates from their ill-starred condition, for the protection of the community which they deteriorate, and for the purity, welfare and honor of the State, the mother of them all."

This evil exists in all parts of the country, but is most patent and pressing in large cities and crowded communities. The remedy - what it shall be, and how it shall be applied, is a subject beset with grave difficulties; but they are difficulties which must be sooner or later manfully met and grappled with.
