By Hoffs study group deficiencies cited in states schools continued from Page i minimum stands should be reviewed periodically and not let stand forever. Although she gave no recommendations she said further study must be made of such innovations As team teaching summer courses programmed learning ability grouping honors courses ungraded or Cross graded classes and work study programs. Moeser whose emphasis was on teachers reported he has found a spiral described As a vicious and declining in which smaller towns cannot keep Pace no matter How dedicated the school boards or administration. He also observed that while the state has the Power to withhold financial Aid and May threaten to do so at times it has never happened in the states history.

Moeser a other findings a a new hard look at state minimum requirements for teacher certification a a change in the retirement act to permit out of state teachers to a buy in to Vermont a system exploring methods of getting in on the social Security system and better methods of rewarding teachers with promotions other than simply making them administrators. A the Mere expenditure of Money does not guarantee what you want a he observed a but not much will happen unless something More is Wilson who has been studying administration and supervision noted that the department of education is too Small to handle the Job it must do in dealing with Vermont s More than 300 school districts. Its resources Are too thin to Cope with its High Aims he said. Wilson said that in today so world of exploding ideas a the Quality of leadership in our schools of today and tomorrow is critical. He also made note of the awkward Vermont supervisory districts in which one superintendent is responsible to Many school boards which maybe scattered Over a wide area a in a District which does not even have the authority to Levy taxes. Frank Livak director of research and statistics in the department of education in reply to a question from the audience said he wished Vermont had the statistics on pupils that it has for cows. The Dairy Herd improvement association accounts for each cow and Elf a electronic farm accounting compiles data on each farm As a business operation but much less is known about humans he complained. Kristensen reported that he believes education should not simply be a a a gift from the state to each child but that it is a matter of a Public education is the first line of defense against ideologies which would destroy our Way of life a Kristensen said. A once we realize that education has become our National defense Well be willing to spend More on later Kristensen attacked a trend toward too much emphasis on vocational education in secondary schools. He said employers today prefer to hire workers who have a general education who can write and express themselves can solve at least simple mathematical problems and who have some concept of the world around them. Ducks and moles Are specialized animals Kristensen observed. Man is specialized in the sense that he is endowed with greater intellectual ability than any other animal. But when a High school merely trains a student to perform a specialized vocational task it is doing Little More than turning out a Duck or a mole not a Man he contended. A we done to say vocational education is bad a he added. A a it a Good. But at the secondary level ifs a tool.

Regions congressmen to petition cab to restore Northeast a Florida route increase in governmental spending in the last decade and the further costs anticipated. Prof. Andrew Nuquist of the government Clearing House at Ulm evoked some snickers when he said that a town governments in Vermont Are not As important today As they think they tracing the history of the Vermont Constitution Nuquist said the towns Are creatures of the state and lost their sovereignty once the Constitution was adopted in 1777. Any town can be abolished spilt or consolidated by an act of the legislature. Government today requires trained personnel not amateurs Nuquist said. A we accept fully this principle in business but too often a anybody can do it in government. In a not saying elected officials Arentt competent for Many of them far exceed their duty. A Nuquist said an example of an efficient system for local government a and the Only truly a a american institution of government a is the town or City manager. Vermont with 39 town and City managers has authorized this system since 1917, and Nuquist concluded that a it should be More fully and carefully since 1943, the state has permitted More than one town to hire the same manager but thus far Only Randolph and Bethel have done it with a new venture being tried by Wallingford and Brandon 30 Miles apart which hired a single manager this year. Another a Straw in the wind a Nuquist pointed out was the proposal Defeated in the 1963 legislature to reduce the Highway system from three to two categories a state highways and state Aid roads. He further noted that a we have a whole series of dying towns a with the 25 largest towns having 53 per cent of the population and the 25 smallest having Only .7 per cent. With 635 units of local government it averages out to one unit for each 615 persons he said suggesting How much More efficient it would be with Only 200 units meaning one for each 2,000 persons. Another speaker rep. Willis Curtis a Hartland told How Vermont knows about each change of status in each cow in the state on ism cards while it knows relatively Little about the taxpayers and tourists who support state government. Vermont has grown slower than any other new England state with a disproportionate Rise in persons below age 15 and Over age 65, Curtis said. While a a bigger is not necessarily a better a Curtis added what has been happening is a shrinking of the productive labor Force persons in the 20-44 age bracket who shoulder the major Burden of taxation. In citing statistics for the number of married couples who both work Curtis said Bennington county has the highest such rate with 40 per cent. The state average is 33 per cent with Essex county lowest at 22 per cent. Paul h. Guare planning Council coordinator showed slides and graphs indicating How the states 9,000 Miles of town roads was adequate a Century ago. But he questioned the present system under which towns Are compensated $293 a mile in state Aid for Many Miles of roads which Are impassable or overgrown. Towns can turn these roads into a Public trails a but they lose their Ald status he said. A there must be some better Way to handle this problem a Guare said. A this is part of the Job the Highway task Force is now Washington apr the members of the new England congressional delegation have agreed to petition the civil aeronautics Board to reverse its temporary decision to end Northeast airlines lucrative new York to Florida route. Northeast president James w. Austin told a closed meeting of the delegation yesterday that the loss of the Florida route would mean a loss of about 1,500 jobs in new England plus a drop in regional service. He also predicted that if Northeast eventually gains a permanent certificate for the Southern flights and gains a subsidy service to new England would be improved materially. The letter the congressmen will Send to the cab will ask for issuance of a permanent certificate for the Florida route and approval of a $3.8 million annual subsidy to compensate for operational losses on new England service. The letter will also ask the cab to Grant a 60 Day stay should the Board finally decide to order Northeast to discontinue Southern flights. The stay would allow Normal operation while appeals Are made. Northeast cannot Appeal the cabs preliminary decision on the Florida route until it is made a permanent order. Later in the Day sen. Edward m. Kennedy d-mass., asked the Senate to investigate the decision. In a move supported by Sens. Leverett Saltonstall r mass. Edmund s. Muskie a Maine and Tom Mcintyre d-., Kennedy noted that the decision overturned some of the examiners Basic recommendations including one that there should be three carriers on the new York Florida route. A this decision a he said a will have grave economic consequences for new England. In All probability it could mean the death of the Only mayor airline based in our Region. It will jeopardize the jobs of 2,000 employees. It could leave Many communities without air service. And by restricting the shuttle Between Boston and Washington to one Carrier it could mean higher prices for travel Between the two rep. Brad Morse r-mass., said that the meeting attended by both Massachusetts senators sen. Winston l. Prouty r-vt., an aide to sen. Norris Cotton r-., and representatives from All six states was called at the initiative of new England members not the airline. A we invited president Austin to sit with us a Morse said a to re View this desperate situation and see How we might Morse said he could not speak for Northeast but should the cab reverse its decision it was possible the Carrier would withdraw its subsidy request.

A service Henry Harrington South Shaftsbury dial 442 9664 Randolph Center a gov. Philip h. Hoff reported thursday he is encouraged by the Progress of his study commission and expects enough findings and recommendations to prepare a legislative program for the coming Winter. The governor explained to More than 200 persons who attended the 10th annual farm Industry Day at Vermont technical College what he called the a state of Drift in which he found Vermont government last january. There was no real idea of what the states economic base was no list of priorities and a Lack of coordination among state departments he said. After asking the state to a take a Long hard look at itself a the governor has concluded that the states Lack of growth and the vagueness about its direction presents a a really great outlining some of Vermont a attributes of scenery and natural resources he pointed out a in Vermont we have something available to no other state. We have not had the economic development and population growth of other states. To some this is a tragedy but it presents us with a really great Opportunity. A a in a convinced that the Vermont we know and love today can be maintained for All times. But of we allow ourselves to Drift we could become like every other state and i done to think we want to be like every other state. These qualities cannot be fostered by Hoff noted that his planning councils operation represents a a prodigious Effort a and that just getting it organized was a major Endeavor. More than too vermonters including scientists technicians of various sorts educators and members of state and Federal agencies will make the final recommendations to the planning commission he said. The governor stressed that no one was asked party affiliation and that knowledge and ability were the Only criteria. More than too panel meetings have already been held he said. Tomorrow saturday.
