Description
 
16 pages, paper wrappings. Mayo's main topic in this booklet is about providing the structural needs and means for establishing quality education for all. He believes that taxation should be used in order to truly support public schools, and that it is a priority.  Teachers also should be of good quality and educated in the profession in order to make schooling effective. In this address he makes it very clear that he truly believes that a good, solid education for everyone could improve not only the children's future, but the future of the country as a whole. As soon as the south started to implement his teachings that they would find their region becomes better for it. It is broken up into several subjects, such as "The Awakening of the People", "Local Taxation for Education" "National Aid for Education" and "The Free Library". Addressing aspects of his vision of a better American education system, Mayo believes he found the solution for the south.  Although in segregated schools the need for higher education for African American children was emphasized as well.

Mayo was both gathering and discussing, especially with his concentration of education in south, this publication would be a beneficial read and a useful resource. .
