plan, the township has had no schoolhouscs to, build: it has paid less for
repair and fuel. Since the schools were consolidated the incidental expenses
have decreased from $800 to $1,100 per year to from $400 to $600 per vcar.
In the first three years following its adoption Kingsvillc Township actitallv _
saved $1,000. '
. Green r]_“-)“'hShl1) lh'eSGHtS an example of consolidation dis—
» tmctly rural. The 1>e0ple of Green 'l‘ownship had watched the
school in a neighboring township for two years and had become
'so thoroughly converted to the new plan that they voted to bond
the township for a long term oi years to erect a $6,000 modern
-'and up—to-date school building. This building stands in the center
of the township eleven miles from one railroad and six miles
from another. The building contains six schoolrooms, with two
additional rooms. one of which might be uséd for a library room .
and the other for a reception room. It is heated by steam and has
a basement under the entire building, part of which might be
utilized for laboratories. gymnasium, etc. To this building are
brought all the children of the entire township. The enrolment
the first year was 180, an increase of thirty over the last year in
the scattered schools. Eight wagons are employed in transporting
the children to the central building. The school grounds com— ,
prise about three acres, much of which is now used for gardening
and elementary agriculture.
Indiana is fast taking the lead among the states. if she has
not already taken it. inthc matter of consolidation and transporta—
tion. The number of schools abandoned has grown from (379..
in 1904, to 1,314 in 1908—449 schools being abandoned from
\ September. 1907, to April. 1903’). The number of consolidated
schools has increased from 2510, in 1904, to 4.18 in 1908. while the
number of children transported has increased from 5.356. in 1904.,
‘to 16,034, in 1908. The cost per day at the present time, April.
. 1908, for transportation of pupils in Indiana is $1,749.24. while I
the cost per wagon per day is $1.87. Such has been the progress
‘of the consolidated system ‘in Indiana in the last four years and
i even greater progress will be made in the immediate future owing ,
to the large ntunbcr of small, one—teacher schools which still exist ’
in the state and the recent enactment of a law by the last legis—
lature which went into effect .\pril 10. 1907. At the present
time there are 387 scluols in the state with an attendance of fewer
[than twelve pupils, and 699 schools with an attendance of fewer
than fifteen pupils. . '
The legislature of 1907 enacted a law making compulsory
__ the abandonment‘of all schools in which the average daily attend—
vance is twelve or fewer. and gives the trustees the authority to
!abandon all schools where the attendance is fifteen or fewer:
provided. the conditions as to roads, streams and bridges permit
Of such discontinuance. The law provides further that
it shall be the duty of the township trustee to provide for the education
of such pupils as oarc affected by such or any former discontinuance in
other schools. and they shall provide and maintain means of transporta-
tion for all such pupils as live at a greater distance than two miles, and
' for all pupils between the ages of six ((3) and twelve (12:) that live less
than two miles and more than one mile from the schools to which they
may be transferred as a result of such discontinuance. Such trausporta- ‘

getting the children to and from school in the most approved way
and (in the shortest time. Our drivers are men of'gotxl rcputn— 1

time, 50 that the children know to the minute when the wagon ’
jwill arrive. and thus they can he rcndy to go. Drivers are not
expected to wait over two minutes for children to get ready. They '
carry a book which shows the timc they :1rrivc at every home.
Routes are from four to six milcs in length and can be made in
an hour and a half. The wagons arc mznlc spcciztlly for the
conveyance of pupils. having :1 door and steps at the back. a door
on the side for the driver, :1 window in front, roll sidc curtains,
