cost big money AUSTIN AP Education issues before the 1983 Legislature all end up with the same proposed solution more Its big bucks any way you look at said one veteran The Legislative Budget Board already has recommended spending billion for public school education the next two an increase of Most and some lob want Three major educational issues apparently will take much of the time of the which begins More money for teachers to stem the loss of Texas talent to other states and More money for underfinanced school districts hard hit by recent changes in property tax More and new money for state colleges and including a controversial division of the Pei manent University Higher teacher salaries was a key campaign issue for Mark and he has promised to help them get an adequate raise out of the although not saying how The Budget Board recommended a twoyear increase of 11 percent amounting to The Texas State Teachers Association proposes a fiveyear plan of raises ranging from percent for experienced teachers to 35 percent for The Texas Classroom Teachers Association wants a minimum 30 percent wage The Texas Federation of an affiliate of the supports a 40 percent increase for teachers and The State Board of Education has proposed teacher salary hikes of 23 percent with much of the increase going to younger The Texas Association of School Boards backs the state board so long as it does not cause any direct increase in local property Educators say Texas particularly those teaching math and are being lured into the computer industry by higher According to the Texas Education the state is losing about percent of its math teachers and percent of its science teachers each year through resignations anil The College of Education at the University of Texas says there has been a sharp drop in the number of students who want to teach math and largely because of low public school Another big bucks fight looms over proposed increased state equalization aid to The state bases the amount of equalization aid it gives each school district on the districts taxable wealth and the average wealth per In the most equalization aid has gone to poor These same districts now are saying the present allocation is not enough because of inflation and property tax laws favoring agriculture big city urban schools want more equalization aid because teacher salaries and other costs are higher in urban and surburban A group called Communities Organized for Public Service wants state equalization aid payments in poor districts increased from the current average of per student to in They want the increases to continue until all districts reach the state average of The Budget Board has recom mended raising payments to in 1984 and in The Board of Education wants a student for both White has endorsed higher saying we have to make certain we break that chain of Big city schools favor a proposal of the Education Agency for a density which would give extra funds to districts with more than We have had a formula in law that gives money to rural districts simply because they are small and said David spokesman for the Texas Association of School What this formula would do is simply say that the large urban districts are going to get additional amounts of money based on the number of students they Legislators also will be asked to increase funds for schools where bilingual education must be offered and possibly for special instruction to gifted We asked for per student for bilingual education last time and got only said Carlos D Corpus This time we think we should get at least just to implement the program already in the There are signs that one of the big fights among state colleges and universities in recent sessions may already have been Texas and University of Texas officials agreed recently to ask the Legislature for a proposed con stitutional amendment to let Prairie View share earnings from the states billion Permanent University The amendment would go to voters for a final In the supporters of and UT have stood firm against sharing any PUF funds with other pointing out the 1876 Constitution set it aside for Giving a portion of PUF to Prairie which is administered by Texas would open the door for creation of a special fund to supply construction funds out of general revenue for the state colleges and universities not in the and UT Building projects at these schools formerly were financed by a state property tax that has been repealed by It has been suggested that this special fund will need million a year out of general said Wilhemina head of the House Higher Education who will handle the But we will have to see about the money We may have to look elsewhere for Carl DPort who is likely to be named chairman of the Senate Education will sponsor the bill in the Custodian loses sick pay appeal AUSTIN AP The State Board of Education backed the Dallas school system Saturday in denying some retirement benefits to a 46year employee because he retired before the end of the school It may be a lousy policy but they had a right to do said board member Virginia Curry of The board technically sustained School Commissioner Raymon Bynum in denying Paul Moores appeal from the Dallas school board He was head custodian at Pinkston High an employee of the Dallas Independent School district for continuous appealed after the district refused to pay his claim for a Retirement Service which is based on unused sick leave His attorney said he retired in conformity with the Texas Teachers Retirement System plan at the end of Moore also asked for a bonus which he said other retired employees The Dallas district said un successful efforts were made to persuade Moore not to take early retirement at the end of 1978 and wait until the end of the school The school said the unused sick leave payments could not figured until the end of the school year when nil retiring employees share propor The state school commissioner found that the unused sick leave payments plan was strictly a Dallas school policy and paid from local Water the problem no one sees AUSTIN AP One reason Texas water problem is so difficult to solve is that not everyone agrees there is a Another reason is that past proposals have tended to align East Texans against West Yet another reason is the enormous price tag for developing water sup A fact summary Texas has 15 major river basins and eight coastal containing about streams and tributaries and more than miles of Un derground reservoirs include the High Plains Ogallala which transformed the Great American Desert into fertile ground for food and fiber and now contains nearly 90 percent of the recoverable ground water in Annual rainfall ranges from eight inches in El Paso to 56 inches in Water experts estimate that even if 42 proposed reservoirs are completed by the year the state will still fall short by one million acrefeet of meeting An acrefoot is

one has come up with alternative to Grant told a water Texas will have about 21 million people by the year and the energy crisis will be nothing compared to our water shortage if we dont address the Interviews by state planners with 187 water experts and notables showed that over 90 percent believed water shortages would be com monplace by 2000 if present facilities are not expanded and patterns for using water are not In 50 we can see a total shortage of water if something isnt done said Fred Midlands assistant city Ghost Outgoing Bill Clements held out hope importing presumably from but elect Mark White says water im portation is kind of like an oasis in the desert the longer you the further it seems to be from We have to show that there are water needs in East Texas that arc vastly different from those in West and then put a package together with something thai is reasonably supported by the fact that all will White told a news East Texans historically have opposed possible transfers of water from East to semiarid regions in West Texas and the Rio Grande an issue Roy D touched on when he I think it might be cheaper to move West Texas to East Texas than to transfer East Texas water to West In 1969 voters defeated by a vote margin a billion bond issue the largest in Texas history to begin work on a water system that would have included a system of reservoirs and canals to pump water from the Mississippi River to West Texas and from East Texas to the Lower Last year Texans overwhelmingly turned down Speaker Bill Claytons proposal to reserve half of any future state revenue surplus for water Ken Kramer of the Sierra Club said the plan reflects the ultimate mirage a false image of unlimited supplies of water into in The Department of Water Resources estimates it would cost assuming 10 percent inflation a to finance the major nonagricultural water projects needed through As an illustration of the immensity of this the Texas 2000 a longrange planning said the total outstanding bonded indebtedness of the state and all units of local government stood at billion a year A House Study Group report said a canal and distribution system for moving water from Arkansas to West Texas for agriculture would cost an extra not including the cost of the Cost estimates have had a sobering effect on peoples says Herbert director of planning and development for the Department of Water It made us realize we need to focus on using the water we have more ef vice chairman John Armstrong of the Texas 2000 Com mission says Texas should reach to Canada and Alaska for more The task of importing should be no more challenging to us than putting a railroad over the Rockies was in the 19th Century or putting a man on the moon in this the Kingsville rancher told an en vironmental say A dead claim Kramer and Stuart Henry of the Sierra The effort of all of us to achieve reasonable and effective solutions to water resources problems should not be burdened by sentimental but impractical hopes of resurrecting the John says another stale water fund proposal will be offered to voters in this time with the support of Bill who led op position to the socalled Clayton plan in Were going to have to have something clever obviously some type of permanent dedicated said Water planners have recommended various programs to back local water and recently the Texas Energy and Natural Resources Advisor Council recommended charging fees for the use of surface and un derground water and the creation of a state commission to negotiate
