MAGRATH (HNS) - Magrath Home and School president Mrs. Inger Bressler introduced Mrs. Ruth Daw of Lethbridge, past chairman of the Lethbridge council for the Home and School Federation, to explain the Worth Report on Education. She was pleased to announce that grants for elementary schools are now the same as for high schools as a result of recommendations in the report. Educationists realize more money is needed for early training in basic skills. The value of preschool training was also emphasized but at present grants are only available for cities of 200,000 or more. Mrs. Daw explained the new direction of education by outlining the system in Alberta. From 1910 to 1920 we still had country schools to help immigrants learn English. By 1933 education made a "fantastic" change. Then consolidation took over and rural students were bused to towns while country schools closed.

The problem of straight academic subjects and "no jobs at graduation" started vocational schooling. From 1940 to 1960 the population and schools doubled. Urban population reached 70 per cent from 1957 to 1967, necessitating further change. As a school counsellor, Mi's. Daw noted a possible trend of our time. Twenty-five to 30 per cent of the children come from one-parent families. In remedial classes 80 to 90 per cent only have one parent. Turnover is constant, such as 23 new students and 20 leaving. Dr. Worth feels the education system must change to meet new needs. It is necessary to equip children to earn a living whether they can pass Grade 8 or not. A Grade 9 diploma is now required to be an apprentice. A high school diploma is essen-Ital to get a job.
