Excerpt from Diary of a Western Schoolmaster

For the past fifteen years most of my time has been given to teaching in schools where I have had to deal with many boys from twelve, to twenty years of age, boys in the adolescent period of life. The study of these boys has been full of interest to me; and while I have made no great discoveries, my faith in boys has increased an hundredfold and my respect and love for them has grown more and more.

Not long ago I visited a school of bright young people full to the brim, just as they should be, with animal life and spirits; but a glance told me that for real educational work the school was a failure. I was interested and at the close of the session had a long talk with the teacher in charge. It was an eighth and ninth grade room. How I pitied those young people.
