And If they do not go are you to blame or are they to blame for it? If it is they who are at fault for tlieir absence, Uien they should be compelled to attend, but f ïou are at fault, then you should be compelled to have them go. A child might as well not attend at all as to attend two or three days in the week, for by so doing he Is not only a hinderence to tho teacher but is wasting valuable time.he might far better be emjiloyed all the time away from school. There is no use of children nowadays growing up in ignorance of the common branches, at least, of an education. Sec to it that your children go to school and go every day. -
