Excerpt from Forty-Ninth Annual Report of the Board of Education: Together With the Forty-Ninth Annual Report of the Secretary of the Board, 1884-85; January, 1886

Action has also been taken by the Board, in pursuance of an act of the legislature (chap. 330, Acts of for the erec tion of a building for the Normal Art School. Plans have been drawn with reference to the occupation of the land granted by the Commonwealth for this purpose; they have been approved by the governor and council, and it is expected that the coming year will see the building completed. The Board recognizes with pleasure the existence of a public sentiment of confidence in the school, which makes this action possible.

The housing and better equipment of the Normal Art School is in accordance with the settled policy of the Commonwealth, to maintain the efficiency of all the Normal Schools. These schools are in a healthy condition, and they are carrying for ward their work with a strict regard for wise economy. Each is growing with a natural expansion as the demands of the schools for well-educated teachers increase. In one instance, however, this growth has been so considerable that the time has come, in the judgment of the Board, when it must be seriously considered in what way the needs of the school for further accommodation should be met. The Normal School at Framingham has outgrown its limits, and its present prosperity gives it an honorable claim upon the attention of the Commonwealth.

The development of this school under the conduct of Miss Hyde not only confirms the frequent saying that the teacher makes the school, but illustrates the general policy of the Board of Education. While the Board provides for a uniform system, it also desires to secure the greatest possible freedom within the system, and it values the personal element above every other. The spirit which moves the principal and assist ants will be that which controls the pupils. The Board, there fore, conceives that its most important function is to place the Normal Schools in charge of men and women who are not only well-trained for the work of teaching teachers, but who bring to their task a high ideal and a spirit of devotion who' set the doing of excellent work above the wages received for the work, and who forget themselves.
