There In It?;
There are thousands of boys and
girls in school today who envy ■
those whom they regard as morel
fortunate in having It ft aobool and
gone to work, Tue dollars that the
workers earn are tangible, and buy
material possessions. The added
knowledge that comes through the
extra years in school is intangible,
and at present buys nothing. Con
sequently the restless pupils are
continually asking, “What is there
in it for me?”
The Massachusetts Child Labor
Commission has undertaken to an
swer them. “There’s just $9 a day
in it for you,” is its reply, definite,
concrete and expressed in terms
of cash. The commission goto
even farther. Not only does it
say that every additional day's at
tendance at school adds $9 to the
sum that the pupil is likely to tarn
during ire working life; it says
that a high school education adds
$33,C00 to the whole amount that
he’ii earn after leaving school.
The figures are based on an in
vestigation made by Dean Lord
of the Boston University Business
for Economical Transportation
