A bill calling for a direct state pension for te&chers has been intro- •4-duced in the legislature, the main features being: 1, A minimum annuity of $200 and a maximum annuity of $500 payable' by the state a?ter thirty^^rs. or m'tbpqf teaching— the "last '•fifteen of ' which shall" have been in Connecticut. 2, A. disability pension in harmony with the above plan for disabled teachers, having taught at least twenty-five years. The question arises "Can Connecticut afford a pension law?" " ' The average term, in teaching is less than eight years. About 10 per cent stay in the work long enough to become eligible to draw a pension and less than 4 per cent have taught long' enough. About 205 teachers would be eligible should the bill become a law this year, of whom about three-fourths are vigorous and would continue teaching, preferring a full salary to 40 per cent of one. ""The approximate number. who would apply this year is less than 40. In business life the pension system is accounted a good business investment aside from the humanita-tion principle involved, because of its tendency to increase business efficiency. For like reasons it should work equally well in the business the-state has assumed of educating her children. Following are some ways in which efficiency in the schools will be increased by%a pension law: By attracting the capable, holding the successful, fittingly eliminating the enfeebled, stimulating cultural and professional growth and by increasing buoyancy and vigor through diminishing the fear of eventual de-pendance. Connecticut spends much -to secure efficient teachers but little to insure against their IQSS, and the To Be Held Monday Evening, February 22.
