The principalship of a modern school represents a vital place in the machinery of present-day education. To have in charge of the ship of education a captain trained for his work, experienced in the field, and cognisant of his duties and responsibilities, is as important as to have an experienced and capable skipper in control of a ship in a stormy sea. With present-day education in a highly changeable state, it Is fundamental that there be a steady aiding hand to direct the activities in the scheme of education. The troubled sea of learning for the great masses cannot be navigated by novices in the art of educational strategy.
