Union-Liberty Journal (Newspaper) - March 23, 1976, Hamilton, Ohio Lakota board covers all, from Birch to three R's By BECKY CHAMBERS Lakota School Board members got down to the very basics Monday night when they faced Ihe question of what should.be taught in the schools. Should the three R's be stressed? Is art education important in elementary school? Should foreign languages be taught at the junior school? Residents of the school district will be asked for their opinions on those questions. Board members voted to go ahead with an Ohio State University needs- assessment survey to find out exactly what residents expect from their schools and are willing to pay for. A needs study has been discussed several times in the past. Action on the idea was apparently triggered when one parent appeared before the board two months ago encouraging adoption of more art education. Details of the study, which will cost about are incomplete. Another parent, Mrs. Patsy Ihe board about a John Birch Society representative who spoke before 11 In and 12th grade social studies students.

Mrs. Shaffner, also the mother of a son in the class, defended the speaker's appearance, saying the class had been well prepared for him. "Definitely, I know lor a fact, the motivation of the teachers involved wasn't to preach John she said. She described the process as a method "of teaching students to" listen and question asking for proof and evidence from speakers. "School superintendent Herbert Henderson agreed with Mrs. Shaffner, adding "those students were prepared to tear the guy apart before he ever got there and had to be toned down." To prove that resource persons who speak to (he classes represent more that than one view, Mrs. Shaff- ner told the group that a socialist is scheduled to speak at the end of this month.
