Students are not jammed into classrooms or waiting in long lines to use the restrooms They're not off the as school Principal George Lloyd puts it Students study and play like children else- where hi the oblivious to the heated controversy about overcrowding in their school That controversy is expected to continue tonight when the county school board holds a public hearing on suggested measures to relieve the space congestion there. The hear- ing begins at p.m. at Broadneck Senior High School. Overcrowding at Broadneck Elementary School is not noticeable at first glance. But after taking a closer the problem be- comes more and teachers say it affects the quality of education For instance1 The school cafeteria is no longer just a place for lunch. It now doubles as an extra and a classroom for music and art. Teachers who once used the cafeteria for special group activities or assemblies are now lucky to find time when the room is not in use. The lunchroom has become forcing school officials to add more tables. Restrooms are becoming said Nancy an elementary school director for the county Board of Education. To keep classroom size a third kindergarten teacher was hired last bringing to six the number of kindergarten sessions each day. The new classes are held where special education students once worked. They were moved to a smaller area of the school. In another fourth grade teacher was hired this year after a combined third and fourth grade class grew too large and had to be separated.

The board projects a need for ten new schools within the next decade if growth continues at the same rate West Severna the Route 3 corridor and Broadneck top the list. we can't slow down then that's our best projection. It really gives us heart- county School Superintendent Robert C Rice said. Parents in all three communities feel they need the first new school but the county has recommended building the first one in Shi- pley's Choice. To temporarily ease the school officials are considering busing stu- dents to less populated schools. But most parents are unwilling to go along with that idea. Regardless of the the crisis has produced its share of finger-pointing Rice says everyone shares the blame enough blame to go around for a lot of people. No one thought about the of development on he said. He said that subdivisions plans were rou- tinely processed and that the school system did not have a planning division all encouraged the growth Now we're on the fast track trying to catch Rice said. on Page Col.
