This Day in Norwood History- September 26

INCREASE IN NUMBER OF NORWOOD SCHOOL CHILDREN

The original Balch School.

26 Sep 1923, Wed The Boston Globe (Boston, Massachusetts)

NORWOOD, Sept 26—Norwood school buildings are taxed to capacity in spite of a large building program and the biggest school plant in the history of the town.
The figures show an increase over the estimate in the number of pupils in the primary grades. The estimated number in grammar school grades was 1950, while the actual recorded registration so far is 1957.

Only 25 boys or girls who received work certificates this year have returned to school. The cause is that the youngsters have been attracted by the high wages prevailing in the industries.
