Description and Holding Information
Superintendent of Public Education. Report, 1870
Report of the Superintendent of Education to the General Assembly of Louisiana. Session of 1870. New Orleans : A.L. Lee, 1870. Thomas Conway dated
his report December 20, 1869. The law required the Board of Education to report to the General Assembly if it found shortcomings in the education
laws. At the time, the law did not allow for any appointment to a School Board to be withdrawn by anyone. That interfered with discipline. The
Superintendent had sent a circular statewide asking for recommendations for school directors, but received barely twenty responses, so he had to rely on
local superintendents for names. The Board was worried about possible fraud in paying local secretaries and treasurers of the school boards and thought
the local county tax collector might be the best person to care for each district's money. The Board noted there was no appropriation to pay the
local superintendents, so the auditor would not pay them. The Board needed a paid secretary.
