How then, could it be expected that the Boards of Trustees of the Colored schools could accomplish what the Boards in the white schools can- not do: standardize the work on insufficient funds? The amounts spent by the state in standardizing s c h o o I s for teacher-training in the white race is more than twenty times the amount spent by the state in schools where Colored teachers are trained. The white popula- tion of the state is only nine times that of Colored. The white school census of the state is twelve times that of Colored.
