The system does away wilh the traditional grading meth- ods by incorporating a learn- ns-you-go system of academic advancement. Grade 1, 2 and so on are dropped.

Mr. Landry said the revi- sions are linked together by a problem s o 1 v i n g or inquiry technique; less emphasis on textbooks and more emphasis on all media for research pur- poses; less teacher talk and more classroom discussion; more stress in preparing the pupils the future by offer- ing experiences in living as well as preparation for living.

Government official backs education property taxes By RO.V CALDWELL jicrahl Staff Writer BANFF It was a mind- boggling speech that greeted delegates at the Tuesday's ses- sion of the Alberta seminar on education finance here. But, after the fluff was blown away from the comments by Al Bredo, Uie director of finance for the department of educa- tion, the main issue that sur- fa ced was that property ta x should remain as the basis for paying for education, but other forms of taxation should be brought into the picture. The 100 delegates had to wade through some heavy dia- logue before finding the point contained in the 28-page pre- sentation. 'In other words, any re- straints, whatever Ihey may be, can fully circumscribe local effort.

Mr. Bredo suggested thero should be a move away from property tax being a principal source of money for education.

He indicated that, be favored drawing more money from in- come tax rather than imposing provincial sales tax as has been suggested by several speakers at the conference. "The (sales) tax would na- turally put a much greater bur- den on Uie lower money incomo said Mr. Bredo. "If the retail sales lax wore used throughout, the burden of tax would remain with those in the lower income money brack- ets." He said personal income tax is the fairest method of raising money, but the possibility of combining this witii tw.o or more other systems of taxation should be explored.
