I SCHOOL IN VIRGINIA
School is a very important factor in a person's life. There are innumerable public schools all over America; each there for the same purpose. It is interesting to note that each state has an almost entirely different curriculum. The schools in Virginia stress culture. It is put far above the three "R's". The particular school I have in mind is the Jeb Stuart Grade School in Richmond. This two story building surrounded by spacious grounds in a clean residential section makes a pleasant place to start to school. Life in a Virginia grade school is leisurely. To be sure, one learns the fundamental things, but learning to live nicely with other people is the more outstanding feature of Southern schools. To do this, games of all types are played. Children are taught to spell and to do arithmetic by games. This teaches them to be unselfish.
