Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 19, 1964, Mason City, Iowa Hughes backs aid hike Urges schools to eye budgets w MOINES Harold Hughes said Thursday he believes state aid to schools be increased but that school boards must improve their budget procedures and recognize that other govern mental needs also must be met Addressing the annual con vention of the Iowa Association of School Boards the governor said school needs and school costs have operated from a special status as compared with other local government agen cies I believe that this era Is ending and I think it is well that it should end Hughes said He said he believes that school administrations should justify their actions and their expenditures and their revenue needs under the same scorching spotlight of public scrutiny as any other branch of govern ment Hughes said he personally be lieves education is just about the most important thing we do in government and that he feels a greater share of state revenues should be returned to local districts for school costs and to counteract the spiral of local property taxes But he said there are three additional points of emphasis for school districts which would clearly be in the longrange in terests of the state He said these are Board of Education members school a d m i n i s trators and teachers should more clearly recognize that there also are other important needs of gov ernment such as public safety public health and highways and that our school systems do not exist in an insulated world of their own but in a great mark et place of public needs School systems in Iowa ur gently need more efficient and more modern budgeting and general fiscal procedures and these should be given priority in school programs equal with the request for more state funds School beards should do their part in the growing effort in Iowa for increased cooperation between local units of govern ment Hughes said school boards city councils and coun ty supervisors need to work to gether to achieve efficiency arid ectnomy through the imagina tive use of joint services and facilities The association was on rec ord Thursday with a request that the 1965 legislature provide the money to pay 40 per cent of all school costs See Story on Page 3 30 days of mourning for Hoover ends WEST BRANCH AP A bugler sounded retreat in the setting sun over the grave of former President
