|County||A Status Report from the Superintendent|
Enclosed herewith please find annual
report for Trimble county for year ending July 1st, 1901.
The schools of this county,
during the past year, have been doing very well.
The school property of the county is in good condition; all but
three houses in the entire county had been rebuilt or repaired since the
present superintendent has been in office, he having served seven years.
The general desire for better
schools is growing, and the public is taking more interest in school
work, but such interest is not yet become strong enough to induce the
parents to tax themselves to prolong the term, or for the better pay of
the teacher; and until that is done, we cannot expect realize much
better results from the work than what we have. A term of five months is
too short to prove of very great benefit. Three districts in the county
have voted a tax and have seven months school.
