Social Center at Clear Lake when the driver Ben Barr 60 fanner near Dougherty suffered a heart attack Sunday evening Mrs Barr two sons and an aunt who were riding with him said the car began to weave before it went off the road They were unhurt Dr Balph E Smiley Cerro Gordo county coronersaid that Ban died of the heart attack at Webster Groves Mo In the educational world the de velopment has received tremend ous noticeAt least one book titled Happened in Pasadena has been written about the matter and countlessmagazine articles have been done Regarded ai Tracedr through most ofthis literature pwblic educa tion setup either navemnnbled or are ipcrumble Bunder the impact of this blow struck in Pas adena Curiously enough most of my own exploration of the subject has been through the medium of these highly critical appraisals of both the fact of the dis missal and tbeTOethods by which it was each one has served to strengthen my con viction that what happened in Pasadena was good rather than bad Despite claims to the contrary its unmistakably dear that the Pasadena shakeup was a reflec tion of public opinion An inordi nately large number of parents dissatisfied with the fruits of sys tem were sending their youngsters to private schools at heavy ex pense to themselves People Have Spoken In short thosewho support the Pasadena school system with their tax dollars and those on the Pasadena school system for the education of their children have let it be known that they were not pleased with the fruits Mason Cityan ways on Dougherty Farmer Dies at Wheel A Mason was among the 7 persons who died violen deaths in Iowa over the Labo day weekend and another Nort lowan died of a heart attack while driving William T Suby 45 181 Hampshire SVE a mechanic was killed Sunday evening in a two car collision at the intersection of two country roads 5 miles south east of Garner Ben Barr 60 Dougherty farm er also died in an auto acciden but Dr Ralph Smfley Cerro Gor do county coroner said death was caused by a heart attack Car Weaves Mrs Barr who was riding with her husband said the car started to weave as Barr was driving on highway 18 near the AllVeterans Social Center atClear Lake It finally ran off the highway and of Mr Goslin d It could very well be of course that Mr Goslin wasright and the people of Pasadena arewrong in their difference of opinion But what is clear beyond mistaking is that if he was right Mr Goslin did not succeed in interpreting his methods and his goals to those who financed and patronized the public schools ofPasadena From my point of view this consideration is ever so much more important than whether the so called progressive education promoted in the Pasadena schools was good or bad Incidentally this changeover to progressive edu cation was inaugurated by a pred ecessor of Willard Goslin long before his arrival there fromMin neapolis in 1948 Have Parents Any Rights The real issue as an editorial in the Saturday Evening Post has vigorously pointed out is express ible in these questions Are parents as parents re lieved of all obligation for the edu cation of their schoolage children Do parents as taxpayers have any right to express an opinion on the curriculum or teaching methods in the public schools Whether progressive education Is good or bad enters into the Pasadena case only to the extent that by its underlying philosophy that the individualistic i elation ship between parent and child is at an end when a boy or girl is enrolled in a public school Strictly for Educators The writer of the Post editorial to progressive education the assumptions that parents have no competence in the field of edu cation and therefore ought not to sons escaped injury Grace WesselsMason City was taken to Mercy
