100 years ago: High school students offered training to become teachers

September 11, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for Sept. 11, 1909: “High school students are being offered an entirely new course, one that will train them to become teachers. The normal course is due to allow pupils to do all that is necessary in high school study to qualify for teacher certificates, even though the university will also continue to train teachers. … Experts from Kansas who have studied farming in Colorado say that Kansas farmers are far ahead of their counterparts to the west. Some think the Colorado people have exaggerated their farming success. … A new lighting system is due to make the university campus as bright as day for night-time events. The lights are to be strung on ornamental poles and will be objects of beauty rather than eyesores, officials say.”
