THE SUPERINTENDENT-A DICTATOR OR LEADER,

WHICH?

HON. HENRY SABIN, DES MOINES, IOWA.

THE

HE present trend of the times is to lodge in the hands of

the city superintendent almost supreme power in strictly educational affairs, and to separate his office from the business or administrative functions of the board. This scheme finds many advocates, particularly in the larger cities. In imitation, in many small towns and cities the superintendent asks to be allowed to exercise the same powers. He claims the right to appoint and dismiss teachers at his own pleasure; to select and change text-books without any interference of school authorities; and to arrange courses of studies as seems to him best. In short,

He is monarch of all he surveys;

His right there is none to dispute. This is done under pretense of removing the schools from the control of local politicians, who use the appointing power to further their own designs. The experiment remains to be tested whether it is wise to intrust so much absolute power into the hands of one man. It is generally a wise maxim, especially in a democracy, to distribute power and limit, if not divide, responsibility. It may well be questioned whether the administration of school matters affords an exception to this general rule.
