Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, APRIL THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PAGE URGES CMC SUPPORT PROPOSED COMPOSITE HIGH SCHOOL mace a strong appeal at the y dab weekly luncheon meet- On Monday Cfeairman Gilbert C. Baterson, K-C, of the public school board Rotary ing for support, for the proposed composite high school for lethbridge. Ic was the first de- tailedpresentation of the proposal, end The resents the ad- dress herewith in full: Mr. Pateraon's "'WUas the best and wisest par- ent wants for his own efcild. that must the community want for all of its It seems to be the consensus that only by having a well educated citizenry "can. the grave problems of war and peace be solved, and the common welfare of the community advanced." The foregoing is a quotation from last month's letter puc out by The Royal Bank of Canada. When a financial institution of the imoonanee of this bank devotes 250 log buildings which outrage all meats. As late ma last fall we called a meeting in at- tended by the minister of education j and his "senior official, as well asj representatives from trustee- boards" throughout, southern Alberta. We were told in no uncertain terms a; that time bv the minister that tne province had no further moneys to spend on education and that if it had. Lethbridge would not get it. While standing solidly behind our J contention ihat the senior govern- ments must assume a greater share c' the responsibility for educational costs, we recognize the fact that other "oarts of the province are much worse off than we are. To indicate what I mean I quote from a letter from the chairman of Grande Prairie school division. divisions north and west of Edmonton at least five thousand children are attending school in campus, to allow for regulation size f ootiwJl tield lor the boys.

AS we are here to "discuss a financial aspect of education in our city, we might begin bv calling attention to a com- mon assumption when we think of value and quality; namely, that ties, we do well matter carefully. present ideas of decent living con- ditions, which are a menace to the health of teachers and pupils, and a disgrace to the province of Al- berta." We have not as yet given up hope of getting a grant through the Dominion government, but the pro- vince must, match it- dollar for dol- lar, and I raerelv refer to the prob- we eet just about, what we pay for; lem facing the provincial govem- ifcat in education as elsewhere you menL Our local member is giving s every assistance. We are accustomed get value in proportion to price. One authority says, "There is a high association be- tween the "amount of money spent and both the aBuantity and quslity or the instructional materials and staff nroviced." Another authori- ty savs, "Everv aspect of education is related to cost, and say what one will, support will be gained, in- creased and retained only as the public is willing to see that the product bears a definite relation- ship to the cost and that it is being bought at market, nrices." Undoubtedly there are exceptions to assumption, but its general soundness cannot be questioned. Taxation Method Obsolete The real problem of financing education lies -in our present obso- lete method of taxation. In L-eth- bricge S2.5 per. cent, of the school revenue is derived from the local ______________ to making advances slow degrees, and al- though the financial problem is of enormous importance, progress in education in this city need not. I submit, await the discovery of its solution. It becomes a question of deter- mining our present mating our requirements for the next number of years as closely as these requirements cart be forecast. Crowded Classrooms At present we have 63 classes in the schools of which 17 are in the Collegiate and 48 ia the elementary schools. The total enrolment is or an average per room over 37. last year Jennie Euiott, a the being a low area in block 100 where I fats have liie sumulus of the Separate school will build, We 1 agreed to pay sum of raoansains-Crow and their satellites. i the west to LetfebrU3e on the Up t you plav and varied. eerpi frora a. leuer lasi year, re- Feaceck Mis reived overseas. ane.

As a consequence securing adequate fin- ancial support for education is ex- tremelv difficult even in normal becomes impossible in many communities during periods of depression." Province's Position Members of the school board are weli aware of the great number of lots that have reverted to the city through tax forfeiture, and of the fact that in the depression years some home owners stood in jeo- Bardy of losing their-homes. The board for many years has co-oper- ated in every move to obtain great- er aasistance from senior govem- fl none: Medicine Hat, 28 per cent.; Saskatoon, 3i per cent.; Monctoft. 67 per cent.; classes having over 40 29 per cent.; rialgarv, 85 per cent; Medicine Hat, 11 per" cent.: Saskatoon, 11 per cent.; Moncton. none. Ml classrooms in the city are in use. The Collegiate was designed for 14 classrooms. We are now operating 18 such rooms in the Building, three of which are in the aasement. Another room used for tvpewriting was not intended as a classroom. The ventilation is poor and it is otherwise unsatisfactory. The auditorium, the laboratories, reading and social studies room, men's room and office space all fail to meet present day require- ments for senior high school. In September we- anticipate a net in- crease in the Collegiate of two classes. This estimate has been taken from the' superintendent's report based on the number of pu- pils in various classes who are likely to move forward. It is also In line with what we would nat- urally expect. Even if the popula- tion of the city dio- not increase we would expect an increase in the enrolment 'of the Collegiate. In the Koval Bank letter to which. I re- ferred it is pointed out that over a 40-year period, the population Oj Ontario increased about 60 per cent whereas secondary school enrol- ment increased nearly oOO per cent While the school population o the city has not varied greatlv during the past five years, the war had placed a. heavy drain on the senior grades. During the war years the names of 425 students young men and women, have been placed on the honor roll. Normally manv of these students would have remained another year or so a Expects Difficult Time A brief glance at the developmen of the city and surrounding distric should convince us that it is uasafi to leave our school accommodation at its present low level. There has recentlv been an extensive builojrag program in the city and the hous- ing situation is still acute. It is inconceivable that this development will not affect the school popula- tion. We anticipate a difficult tune when school opens after mid-sum- mer vacation. The general program of the board nas been correctly outlined by The Herald in its editorial of March 30. This province as well as others has arranged that the elementary schools comprise grades 1 to 6; 7 8 and 9 make up the junior high school, and 10 to 12 inclusive, the senior high. Our school buildings in 3-etn- bridge do not lend themselves to this arrangement so that we have continued with, grades 7 and 8 in the elementarv, with grade 9 in the Collegiate along with the senior grades. We now contemplate builc- ing a senior high school, which will house grades 10 to 12 including technical and household science classes. We plan to use the pres- ent Collegiate as a junior high tak- ing in grades 7. 8 and S. This will mean the withdrawal from the ele- mentary schools of grades 7 ana 8. a total of 12 classes now spread around the 19th and 20ch street area, and will be particularly de- sirable when the Separate school board builds its new high scnool.

Our shops are so far from the Collegiate that there can be no free inter-change of classes, and no workable timetable can be satisfactorily set, up. Let me quote again from the writer whose words carry with them the prestige of the Koyal Bank: "Education has become increas- ingly miscellaneous and encyclopae- dic. Job specialization demands a more deliberate and specific form of vocational training for those who desire it; intelligent participa- tion in civic and political affairs requires a broad general education: and the responsibilitv of social life calls for guidance such as never was attempted in past generations. This is why technical education in Canada is skilfully blended with the academic, combining the gen- eral with the specific, and the cul- tural with the practical."
