PUBLIC SCHOOLS
    The public school system of Colorado is similar to that of other Territories and the States. The people are alive to educational interests and in several instances, better and more expensive school buildings have been erected than can be found in Eastern towns containing twice as many inhabitants. Many portions of the Territory are yet, unavoidably, without adequate school facilities; but as a whole, it is better supplied than any Territory in the Union.
    The whole number of school districts is 125; the whole number of school houses 100; school enumeration 7,539; and the number of pupils attending 4,067.
    The school fund of 1870, raised by a special school tax in the various counties, amounts to $61,881.27. There is, as yet not Territorial fund although the usual reservation of school lands (sections 16 x 36 in each township) has been made by Government, so that, as soon as the Territory shall have become a State, this will largely augment her ability to foster means of public education.
    There is a territorial superintendent of public instruction, and a count supervisor for each county. These are all elected once in 2 years.. The counties are divided into districts, and each district has its board of 3 directors, who employ teachers and have general supervision of the affairs of the district. These directors are elected annually, in May.
    The following is a list of the territorial and county superintendents of Colorado for 1871-1872.
W.C. Lothrop, Territorial Superintendent of Public Instruction
Jefferson County, M.C. Kirby-superintendent, Golden City-post office.
