description <p>The farmer's child enters our public schools; he is<br />taught to read, write, and spell. He is then taught<br />arithmetic and grammar. If he shows a desire for<br />knowledge, and his father can spare him from the<br />farm, he may be given instruction in Latin,<br />geometry, English literature and modern and<br />ancient history. It is then thought that he has<br />enough education to make a farmer, and he is<br />taken from school and put to work on the farm.<br />He has spent from ten to twelve years of his life<br />getting a smattering of everything in the<br />educational calendar, except the one industry,<br />the special knowledge of which is largely to<br />determine his success or failure in life.</p><p>"Necessity for an Agricultural Education,"<br />Prince Edward Island Magazine and<br />Educational Outlook, May 1904</p>
