WHY THE DELAY? II was also asked why teach- ers are not made aware of the grade I hey will leach until after Sept. 3. This has been an in- convenience for several years as some teachers look for nia terial through vacation months and could be aware of more if Ihey were certain of the grade. .Mr. Matkin replied Ihey are rying lo control this.
