A report written by the Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte on this date and published in De Hope on September 28, entitled, "Education: Report by the Committee for School and Education for the Fall Session of the Classis Holland." V.R. urges all Christian citizens to use their influence to maintain the reading of the Bible in schools. He also urges the churches to support and press for higher education. Rev. Roelof Pieters will take responsibility for all higher classes in the Catechism and Peter Moerdijk in the lower classes. Apparently these men will advise the congregations on the practice and promotion of catechism teaching.
