We trust the Middle-Class School Commission, now commencing its labours,

will not commit the gross injustice of omitting to report on the educational provision for one-half of the middle-class children,—girls. They will find indeed few or no great institu- tions to report upon,—but for that very reason it is the more need- ful that if they advise the appropriation of any grammar-school endowments to create great model schools they should not fail to remember the far greater needs of girls. It is hard for those who are struggling on behalf of this neglected cause to find that the need of good education for girls has hardly as yet entered into the imagination of public men.
