[9] I now turn to the objection that one master can live more attention to one pupil. In the first place there is nothing to prevent the principle of “one [p. 45] teacher, one boy” being combined with school education. And even if such a combination should prove impossible, I should still prefer the broad daylight of a respectable school to the solitude and obscurity of a private education. For all the best teachers pride themselves on having a large number of pupils and think themselves worthy of a bigger audience.
