Open teaching area ousted TABER (HNS) The wide- open spaces of Taber Central Elementary School are to be no more. Following a study of pro and :on arguments on the open caching area concept, the pub- ic school board has approved be construction of five perma- nent divider walls between the rarious teaching areas. The board acted on both par- ent and teacher complaints about the distraction occasion- ed by noise and confusion 'from ther classes in the same teaching area. Not all teachers objected to ie lack of separating walls some were satisfied with the modern concept. Generally the older teachers referred the conventional [assroom system of instruc- tion.
