PHONE 328-7121 "Do you have a spare pair oF glasses for holiday Expert reaction starts to Worth education report By HON CALDWELL ilcralii Staff Writer The Worth Commission Re- port on Educational Planning is "a real contribution to ed- ucation and a challenge to all of soys Bob Kimmitt, superintendent of the Leth- bridge separate school sys- tem. "I [ind it a very exciting report. I've read quite a few reports on education over the years and this one will stand up and compare to any in Canada, including the Kali- Dennis Report which was done in Ontario a years ago." However, Mr. Kimmitt said he expects to find some things he doesn't like in the Worth Report "once I get into it." "We have only received one copy and its been passed oround so I haven't bad a chance to read the whole said Mr. Kimmill. Commenting on the recom- mendation thai small separ- ate school systems in centres like Lethbridge amalgamate with the larger public school systems, Mr. Kimmitt said he doesn'I forsee such a move for some time. "People are not ready for that. It is a long way into the future. Just because the recommendation i s there, doesn't mean its going, to he said. Mr. Kimmilt also predicted that the "full dream" of the Alberta Academy proposed in Ihe report won't be realized right away. "This Is the kind of think- ing that is going on in the minds of many educators to- he said. "But the provincial govern- ment has to get into educa- tional television on a prov- ince-wide scale first." The Alberla Academy pro- posal a province-wide multi-media educational ser- vice was described by Dr.' Walter Worth, author of the Worth report, as the one rec- ommendation that the provin- cial government should "start work on tomorrow." Mr. Kim mil said he thinks the report will have a trem- endous impact on education in Alberta and will almost certainly speed up getting formal education for five- year-olds. Stewart: 'wait and see' Dr. C. D. Stewart, presi- dent of the Lethbridge Com- munity College, said he re- gards Ihe Worth Commission Report on Educational Plan- ning as "a fairly typical roy- al commission report." "I've read hundreds of commission reports and so often they just end up on the shelf gathering said Dr. Stewart. "I'd like to know how ser- ious liie minister ol advanced education is about this re- port." Dr. said he wasn't too enthusiastic about a corn- mission recommendation that the Alberta universities commission and the Alberta colleges commission be scrapped. He said if this occurred, the province's six colleges would probably gel the short end of the deal. "With one body looking after both colleges and uni- versities, I fear that the uni- versities would get most of the money and attention and we would suffer for he said. "It is the personnel that make a commission go. I don't care if you have one, two or six commissions, if good people are involved then it will work. "It's when you gel people who get hung up in red tape that you have problems." Dr. Stewart said after reading about one-third or the 325-page report and judging from what he has heard from ether sources, it would be best to adopt a wait-and-see attitude about the Worth Commission study. "As far as we are con- cerned at the college, it all depends on Mr. Foster, the minister of advanced educa- tion, whether or not this re- port makes any contribution to education in he said. Boras: 'food for thought' The Worth Commission re- port provides a lot oE food for thought but it is going to re- quire quite a bit of digesting, said John Boras, chairman of the Lethbridge separate school board. f'I found the report to be quite he said. "But it's probably going to be some time before we see some of the things in it come to pass." Mr. Boras said he was "quite interested" in the com- mission's proposal for reach- ing settlements in teacher contract negotiations. The recommendation called for the appointment of a neu- tral third party to intervene when talks break down. His task would be to select the most reasonable offer sub- mitted by the parties in- volved thus forcing both sides Plaque honors Sapper Presentation of a plaque in memory of the late WOZ L. M.

"I've been quite interested In that idea. It may be a step to a relurn to sanity in ne- said Mr. Boras. However, he said that it is unlikely such a system will be adopted in Lethbridge in the immediate future. "Teachers here have done pretly well under the present system and when someone is getting what they want, they are reluctant to Mr. Boras said. "Personally, I would accept it for our contract negotia- tions." Commenting on the recom- mendation for early educa- tion for five year olds, Mr. Boras said he would strong- ly favor such a syslcm as long as it was voluntary. "I don't favor compulsory he said. "Education doesn't just take place within four walls. It is obtained in many other places." Early education would be particularly useful for the talented, the retarded, the disabled and the immigrant, he said. And, its value in the study of languagej should not be overlooked. "This is the age when a child should slart sludying anolher language. I would like lo see this become part of an early education pro- gram." Mr. Boras said he is op- posed to the recommenda- tion that separate school boards in small centres, such as Lethbridge, amalgamate with the larger public school hoards. More than invitations have been sent out to students who attended the Lethbridge Housing officials meet here The Alberta Housing Corpor- ation meets here Tuesday as the first of a new program of meeting at locations outside Edmonton. Fred Weatherup, Lethbridge director of the corporation, said the bi-monthly meeting will be at p.m. at the Uni- versity of Lethbridge after dir- ectors' have toured the city and inspected a factory-buill housing project on the Blood Indian reserve. The new policy of meeting outside oE Edmonton is to aquaint the corporation's seven directors with the various areas of Alberta, he said. Another reason is the nev provincial government's staler policy to fry to decentralize government. David Russell, minister p municipal affairs and chair man of the corporation, wil meet news reporters at p.m. at the university, follow ing the meeting. Mr. Weatherup declined to reveal what the corporation agenda contains, but said it is unlikely to include anything o major interest to Lethbridgr j people in particular.
