This one I'm sure NORM would be interested in...hahahaha

I could understand 1/8 of this test. and If I were to take this test, I would get a f f f...(Triple F ) . Actually I would be in the Minus category.

1. Will fill lamps, trim wicks and clean chimneys

2. Each morning teacher will bring a bucket of water and a scuttle of coal for the days session.

3. Make your pens carefully.  You may whittle nibs to the individual taste of the pupils.

4. Men teachers may take one evening each week for courting purposes or two evenings a week if they attend church regularly

5. After 10 hours in school the teachers may spend the  remaining time reading the Bible or any other good book

6. Women teachers who marry or engage in unseemly conduct will be dismissed

7. Every teacher should lay aside for each pay day a goodly sum of his earning for the benefit during his declining years so that he will not become a burden on society

8. Any thacher who smokes, used liquor in any form, frequents pool or public halls, or gets shaved in a barber shop will give good reason to suspect his worth, intention, integrity and honesty

9. The teacher who performs his labor faithfully and without fault for five years will be given an increase of $.25 per week in his pay providing the Board of Education approves

And don't forget....any time the children were needed on the farm it was an excused absence. And any remedial work schedule had to be worked into the daily lesson plan. Amazing there were any volunteers to teach children.

If a teacher in Grade school called out sick.
The boys were to drag the desk chairs from the absent teachers room, and into the next room. We just doubled up in the 4th or 5th grade room for the day. They didn't scramble and call in a substitute teacher; unless the teacher was out for more than two days.

My mom was a one-room school teacher for a few years before she got married.

I have seen the Salina test before. I looked a few years ago into it and apparently it is a real test. My school was not too far from Salina.

Sandra Day O'Conner recently bemoaned todays kids learning levels. One of the questions she said a lot of them missed was about why the Declaration of Independance was written. They didn't know even though the answer is in the question.
