EDITED BY A COMMITTEE OF
The Massachusetts Teachers' Association.
PUBLISHED BY SAMUEL COOLIDGE,
No. 16 DEVONSHIRE STREET.
It will be observed that Professor Agassiz was announced as the Editor of the January number of the Teacher. But his engagements, at the present time, are so numerous and urgent, that he finds it impossible now to comply with the expectations of the readers of this journal. Regretting the unavoidable disappointment, the Editors for the current year resident in Boston, assume the responsibility of this number.
From the Report of the transactions of the Massachusetts State Teachers' Association, it will be seen that two prizes are offered for Essays from female teachers ; also, that a Committee was chosen to furnish to the Editor of each number items of news, and statistical matter pertaining to the subject of education.
The success and circulation of the Teacher, for the last year, have been as great as could reasonably be expected. It is believed that no future efforts will be spared to render the periodical instructive and useful, and hopes are entertained that, for the good of the cause to which its columns are devoted, its circulation will be much increased, and that its pages will be familiar, not only to the teachers of New England, but also to those of our sister States more remote.
