The subject of religious instruction has for obvious reasons been left untouched. Where managers have a due sense of their grave responsibilities, they will take every care that religious teaching receives that thought and attention which its paramount importance deserves.
Such managers would no more leave everything to teachers than would the colonel of a regiment leave all to its adjutant and subalterns. They will depute one of their body to inspect the school daily, if possible, inquire into absenteeism, insure and test accuracy of registration, enforce cleanliness and tidiness, give advice and encouragement to their teachers, -exercise, in short, a real and thorough supervision.
