L > fii'vfi'NE of the most serious difi‘iculties that
faced Horace Mann, fifty years ago,
_~5 > _ R in lns work for public education, was
" ' the dense apathy and the even worse
j' ' 3 I: antagonism of the teachers themselves.
~ 25 , , ,, They did not believe they needed any
5 31*)?- special training to fit them for their
‘ - I work and they did not want any.
.5? Long.r after the teachers walked to a
. realization of the value of professional train-
, insr and began to avail themselves of it, the
general public remained indifferent, or hostile.
And even now the idea is entertained by not a
I. few that knowledge of a subject and the ability
‘ to teach it are convertible or identical quanti-
_' ties.

i But by far the greater number of both teach-
‘ ers and general public are to-da)‘ convinced
'~ that teaching is a profession, one that touches
'. - intimately all other professions—since everyone
5', _, 5,. must pass through the schoolmaster's hands
fiand requires for its successful practice a thor—
. >, ough and special preparation. To such as object
. that they cannot afford this special preparation,
' the answer is, that the properly prepared teacher
2 is sure of more money [or his services than can
j . be earned by the ill-equipped.
