Teachers best qualified to decide student needs CALGARY (CP) Teachers are the best qualified to decide the educational needs of stu- dents and should not allow others to encroach on their au- thority, says Dr. Walter H. Johns, former president of the University of Alberta. He told the annual con- vention of Southern Al- berta Rural Teachers Thurs- day their authority is being threatened by parents, directly or through local school boards, and through legislation. "You are the people in the business of education and you surely should know best what methods succeed and what fail. "The future of education in this country lies primarily and basically in your bands." Dr. Johns was critical of pro- posals which allow students to select their own programs and proceed at their own pace. "In the first place, how many students are competent to say what they need to learn "In the second place, can you imagine yourselves spend- ing hours holding consultations with individual students about their own private study plans and curricula. "And finally, when a pro- gram has been agreed upon, how would you handle 20 or 30 distinct programs The convention was later told students need to feel a sense of worth and love in the class- room. Dr. Richard Hawes, vice- president of the Institute for Reality Therapy in Los An- geles, said these needs can be met by individual attention or active involvement of one chile in the welfare of another. Dr. Hawes is an advocate o: schools without failure because students are in the situation of "passed and not passed yet, rather than passed or failed." "People who fail or who feel failure withdraw. "When a child feels he is re- sponsible for his success or failure in schools, his achieve- ment goes up." Police ready to handle protesters SASKATOON (CP) Chief Jim Kettles says polios may rave to forcibly prevent a women's liberation group from entering the exhibition grounds [f they insist on demonstrating before Prime Minister Trudeau when he opens the Canada Winter Games tonight. "We'll play it by Chief Kettles said Thursday in an in- terview. "But I expect there's going to be trouble." He said he and his superin- tendent talked to representa- tives of the group Thursday but were unable to deter them- from going ahead with their planned protest. The group, fighting for legis- lation to permit abortions on demand say they want to meet with Mr. Trudeau for only 15 minutes. "I sympathize with the prime Chief Kettles said. "He has a killing sched- ule. The women's lib want 15 minutes. He hasn't got 15 min- utes." He said in the Commons that new discussions on an agree- ment will be initiated at u 'appropriate time." Major exploring and iraport- ng countries had considered proposals on quantities and >riee levels which would be lelpful in future discussions Canada was not "unduly dis- couraged" about failure to reach agreement at this time. Clifford Downey (PC Battle River) said the results of the Geneva meeting were very dis- appointing and John Burton (NDP-Regina East) said the or- derly international marketing of grains has collapsed because of an unparalleled series of er- rors by the Canadian govern- ment going back ot 1966, LANG CRITICIZED In the question period later, Mr. Lang was assailed by nu- merous MPs demanding to know what steps the govern ment would take to assist west ern fanners now that hopes for an agreement have collapsed Former prime minister John Diefenbafcer asked whether the government would have the courage to introduce acreage payments, a two-price-domestie and foreign-system for whea and a floor price. Mr. Lang replied there wouli likely be little change in market conditions for gram even with out an agreement, in view o the fact that a former agree- ment had done little to promote international order anyway. The minister also refused t give a "blow-by-blow" descrip tion of the Geneva talks whe asked by Mr. Burton to stat what position had been taken b other countries. Agriculture Minister H.
