It is a source of great gratification to review the progress of the classified schools of Ohio for the last ten years, and especially is it a matter for congratulation that the free school principle has been so cordially, so thoroughly, and, apparently, so permanently adopted in our State. But while a rich harvest of blessings has already been reaped, it needs to be distinctly understood that the capacity of our free school system for usefulness remains yet almost entirely unrevealed. While it is true that our free classified public schools have been successful, still that success has not been of the first order. Valuable as far as it goes, it is still not worthy of the highest commendation. It does not, or has not yet, generally, involved the highest human attainments in its accomplishments. It has not yet so changed the face of society as to make the difference apparent to the common observer. What has been already gained is, in general, mostly preparatory to what should follow. By bringing together in a free school all the diversified gifts of all the children of a community, and thereby uniting and diffusing all the advantages which social position and home culture can furnish, some degree of success must almost necessarily follow, and, if to the foregoing is added a judicious classification of the pupils in schools, the work of intellectual instruction can be conducted with marked success by Teachers of quite ordinary attainments.
