Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID - Thursday, January 28, 1971 More say needed in governing school districts Mass participation urged by Larson EDMONTON - A system of | committees designed to give all groups involved in the educational process a say in school district governance was advocated here Wednesday by Dr. 0. P. Larson, Lethbridge public schools superintendent. Final decisions would be up to the school board, Dr. Larson said, because they are the only elected representatives of the people who give financial support to education. Dr. Larson was addressing the annual conference of Alberta school superintendents, consultants1, supervisors and inspectors. In the school system itself, there would be committees of teachers, administrators and trustees; within individual schools there would be com- Coffeehouse opening Saturday A new coffeehouse at South-minster Church, to open Saturday at 7:30 p.m., is still on the look-out for local and district young folks ingers who would like to perform this week. Currently scheduled are two Lethbridge solo performers, Scott Wolsey and Don Flaig. The coffeehouse, being held in the basement of Southmin-ster Hall, will be open every second Saturday night. Persons wishing to perform are asked to contact Don Dor* am at 328-3920. mittees involving students, teachers and administrators. A panel discussing Dr. Larson's speech agreed with his concept of mass participation, but did take some exceptions. Ken Bride, a development officer with the Alberta Teachers' Association, said the formation of too many committees would thwart their objective, making communication increasingly difficult. Mr. Bride pointed to "teacher power" as an important factor in decision - making, but said if teachers are to participate they should also be accountable to the public. Harold Jepson, Lethbridge high schools inspector and director of the regional department of education office, said a "continuing dialogue" is essential if mass participation in education is to succeed. He said a board could set up a structure to facilitate communication among several groups, but dialogue must be continued and encouraged after it is started if the objective of mass participation is to be achieved. John Fried, a student at Edmonton's Ross Sheppard Composite High School, compared the present educational administrative structure with a military establishment where stu dents are treated "as privates on kitchen duty." He said students may apoear to be apathetic toward education, but the cause of their lack Lecture Friday at university Robert Rowan, professor of philosophy at the University of British Columbia, will give an address on The Retreat From Politics Friday at 1 p.m. in Room 38 of the University of Lethbridge Kate Andrews Building.

The lecture is open to the public.

Dr. Larson's address was, in many ways, a report on the system now in operation in Lethbridge public schools, where many educational concerns are briefly discussed at a school board meeting, and then referred to one of several existing outside committees, or a new committee, all of which would involve parents, teachers, trustees and often students. The committees draw on school district specialists for whatever information they need, and their recommendations are sent to the school board for its decision. Similar committees, involving students, teachers and administrators and in some cases, parents, have been developed in a few city schools, Home for young people turned down by the MPC An application by the department of public works for a group home for young people was refused Wednesday by the Municipal Planning Commission. Refusal was on the grounds that the hostility of residents of the area might be harmful to the concept of the group home and that it was not considered suitable for the area. The proposed home, to be operated by the department of social development, would serve youngsters not able to Business okays Five home occupation business applications were dealt with by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday. Three were approved, one refused and one tabled.

Although there was some talk this week about tabling, the commission went ahead and dealt with all applications on the agenda. A report on home occupations from City Manager Tom Nutting, expected at Wednesday's meeting, was not available as Mr. Nutting had been called out of town. The report is now expected for next week's meeting. It is part of a review of home occupations that has been under way for some time Refused by the commission was an application from Art Williams Agencies to re-establish residential use of a house at 1503 3rd Ave. S. that is in a commercial zone and which most recently has been used as an office. Approved was an application for a cash and carry wholesale grocery business by Western Grocers at 542 13th St. N Factory houses approved A total of seven factory-fabricated houses were approved at Wednesday's meeting of the Municipal Planning Commission. All of the applications had been tabled last week in order to give city planners a chance to peruse the plans. Three of the homes are to be moved onto sites at 20th St. and 13th Ave. N. by Squire Development. The other four are planned as show homes, by Schwartz Agencies, at 11th Ave. and 25th S't. N. Erwin Adderley, director of planning, said he had some res-ervations about the show homes if there were going to be a large number of them in one area. He suggested there was a need for more variety in design. This has been a concern of the commission regarding the prefabricated units and a bylaw change regulating them is in the process of being passed function in a large institution, but not yet ready to be returned to their parents. About IS residents of the area presented a.petition, containing some 60 names, protesting the home's location in their neighborhood. The petition says, in part, "there is a distinct possibility that there will be incidents of an unfavorable nature," if the home is located in a residential area. The petition adds that most of the children in the neighborhood are at, an impressionable age (the average is five years) and "there is a definite possibility of direct or indirect social deterioration in their behavior." Suites under gun The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday instructed Development Officer Tosh Kan-ashiro to prepare a recommendation to city council regarding the enforcement of the bylaw on basement suites. The commission is, in effect asking for some definite instructions from council on whether it wants the bylaw amended or strictly enforced. While some suites are legal, those in areas zoned for single - family units are not, unless they were built before the bylaw was passed. An application from Eric Stehiwy to convert a single-fam ily dwelling at 216 16th St. N. to a two - family residence prompted the commis s i o n's move to get advice from council. Mr. Schiwy's application was rejected on the grounds the lot size was smaller than that allowed under the bylaw and that he had been informed while the house was being built that it could be used only as a single-family residence. Mr. Kanashiro told the commission this was only one case in which a building permit for a single - family unit had been used to build a house containing a basement suite. He said people sometimes apply for permission to build an extra suite in the basement and when they are told they cannot they apply for a permit for rumpus room and a summer kitchen. The result, he said, is that a suite is built and rented. Chairman Joe Balla suggest ed such persons might be given three months in which to close down the illegal suite. CONST. N. E.
