Dont delay let us- Milk River teachers' transfer thwarted By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer WARNER An attempt by the County of Warner to "per- suade" two Milk River Teach- ers into accepting transfers to Hutterite colonies was thwarted Wednesday in a Warner public meeting. County of Warner school officials ended the day-and- a-nalf bearing by agreeing to defer the transfer of Milk River High School teachers, H. R. Jeffers and his wife Ivy Jeffers. The Herald was told by ob- servers that the teacher-ad- ministrator problem appar- ently resulted from a person- ality conflict between Milk River High School adminis- trators and Mrs. Jeffers. Mrs. Jeffers' concern about an apparent lack of consist- ent policy in tbe school also created a tense atmosphere between her and her immedi- ate superiors. There was no logical rea- son given during the meet- ing for the attempted trans- fer of. Mr. Jeffers, observers said. An observer who was label- led impartial 0y opposing forces at the meeting claimed there were definite problems on both sides. "There have been real problems in the school and there were lots of errors committed by all par- ties involved." It was suggested by a few. who attended the meeting that there have been prob- lems among teacher, school administrator, Milk River School Board and County of Warner school officials for many years now. At the end of the last school term, lie Jeffers received transfer notices in the mail, but declined to accept them. They asked the Alberta Teachers Association for a hearing. The hearing began Tuesday with ATA representatives, Milk River High School ad- ministrators, County of Warn- er school officials, lawyers for the respective sides and about 50 parents and interested per- sons in attendance. Tbe administrators appar- ently told the meeting the transfers were issued because the Jeffers were incompatible with school administration. Later they admitted the Jeffers were "superior high school observers told Tbe Herald. Gary 6. Potvin, superinten- dent of the Warner County schools, in an interview with The Herald said "problems did exist in the school and they were amicably resolved" at the meeting. "Machinery was set up at the meeting to see that the situation will work he explained. He declined to elaborate. The Jeffers told The Herald they were "satisfied with the decision." One observer said it has been the- practice of some school administrators in Southern Alberta to send teachers who "don't fit the system" to Hutterite colonies as a method of discipline. Apparently transfers most often result from a personal- ity conflict between adminis- trators and teachers. The transfer practice has been a favorite school admin- istration "carpet sweeper" for years, a Milk River parent .explained. "In the past, administrators used to send so called problem teachers to one room coun- try schools." The administrators revers- ed their original decision to transfer tbe teachers before tiie Jeffers scheduled public testimony Wednesday. Some Milk River parents didn't agree on tbe outcome of the meeting. "Nothing has been resolv- one .person claimed. "They didn't have firm grounds to fire or transfer them and the meeting prov- ed it." Another however, suggest- ed tbe decision was most f au- to everybody involved and there will have to be "a tot of giving on both sides" if tbe problems are to be re- solved.
