At the Jubilee Conference of the National Union of Teachers

a great deal was rightly said about the payment of teachers. In our judgment, this is one of the most urgent matters of the moment, and long delay in settling with the teachers would bo intolerable. The Special Joint Committee of Teachers and Local Education Authorities recently drew up a scale of salaries. Why should not this be acted upon ? Or if it is not .good enough to.be acted upon, why should it not be made the starting-point of discussion ? One of the teachers whose words we see reproduced in the Morning Post said at the Kingsway Hall on March 27th, when Sir Cyril Cobb was shouted down, that at nearly fifty years of age, with a family of five, he was. drawing a salary of £3 10s_ a week.
