    Excerpt from The National Baptist Educational Convention

    We are less concerned about our colleges, however, than about our academies. In this apartment the Proceedings before us betray bit terly our deficiency. Here we are weakest. We know Of no academy, under the patronage of the denomination, which has more than a nominal endowment. This constitutes the maladjustment of our institutions to which we have referred. Oar institutions are strongest in proportion as they are are removed from the great body of our people. Our theological seminaries, designed necessarily for a limited though most important class, are first in strength; next are our colleges and universities, designed for greatly larger, but still limited numbers; least of all are our academies, whose function it is to bring the first grades Of higher education near to the homes, and within the means of the great mass. This maladjustment brings its punish ment, in the meagre number Of students in our colleges for the want of academies from which they may proceed, and in the small number of students in our theological seminaries for the want of students from the colleges. We have attempted to achieve impossibilities. The system of American education is a pyramid, having its base in the all-comprehending sphere of public instruction. Next to this stand the academies, themselves the highest to which the greater number who rise above the sphere Of public instruction can go, but the institutions in which multitudes find the inspiration which carr1es them to the still higher stage where are found the colleges and universities. Still above this, for the comparatively few, are the professional schools, including schools of theology. The natural place at which to begin the erection of a pyramid is at its base. We have attempted to build from the apex. It is told, to illustrate the punctuality of labor to quit at the hour, that an Irishman having his pick-axe lifted in the air when the clock began striking for twelve, left it there till the hour came for resuming work. The story of his performance is little less absurd than the attempt to construct the educational pyramid by laying the apex in mid air, and proceeding thence downward to the foundation.
