Rules for Teachers in 1872

I really got a kick out of this,I thought someone else might also.

1.Teachers each day will fill lamps, clean chimneys and trim wicks.

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

3.After 10 hours in school,the teachers should spend the remaining time reading the bible or other good books.

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

5.Any teacher who smokes,uses liquor in any form, frequents pool or public halls or gets shaved in a barber shop will give good reason to suspect his worth, intentions,integrity and honesty.

6.Make your pens carefully;you may whittle nibs to the individual tastes of the pupils.

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

8.Every teacher should lay aside from each pay a goodly sum of his earnings for his benefit during his declining years so that he will not become a burden on society.

9.The teacher who performs his labors faithfully and without fault for 5 years will be given an increase of 25 cents per week, providing it is approved by the board of education.
