Charles Northend was the Principal of the Aborn Street School in Salem Massachusetts.  His essay outlines his reaction to new theories of education that were circulating in the public school system in and around Boston. “But while many are thus prompt in bringing forward, with so much apparent interest, zeal and confidence, new theories, how few are really competent to carry any to successful operation.  Many have yet to learn that theory is one thing and practice quite another.”
