Each iring a number of cases of >g poisoning are reported to ily police. Under a city bylaw dogs are oi to be permitted to run at irge. This appears to be the est, and possibly the only 'ay, to prevent a dog .from poisoned accidently or eliberately. To date there have been two as2s this spring of dogs found oiscmed. One of the main causes ol og poisoning is the abundance f rubbish that until recently ay hidden under snow or ice. Dogs are known to often in-estigate such piles of rubbish md occasional? eat something bat is poisonous, according t( Triief James H. Carpenter a he city police. Also there have been cases In past years of apparent deliberate poisoning of dogs. Mouse seed containing stry dminc and hamburger are boil ;asily purchased and form a deadly combination. Most cases where deliberate loisoning is suspected prove dif icult to investigate as not onlv must a poisoner be determined wt the intent to poison mus >e proved.

It is certainly not any business of most parents in Lethbridge, and it is definitely not the business of any taxpayers. Not one solitary taxpayer has one tiny tidbit of a right to open his or her mouth about one soli- tary thing any school, any teacher, any student, any school trustee or any school administrator does. Why? Because obviously none of the taxpayers could care less how money'is spent on school activ- ities, how the school boards set their policies or what the policies are or what problems school trustees and teachers must overcome to try to give Lethbridge students a good education. 1 have NEVER seen a parent or taxpayer attend a school board meeting in this city 'with the exception of two parents' groups which had special complaints and took delegations to the public school board's meeting. I have seldom seen representatives of the home and school council attend public school board meet- ings regularly (they have for the past handful of and never sesn them at a separate school board meeting. The Alberta Teachers' Association sends repre- sentatives to every meeting, but never has a teacher appeared out of personal interest or concern. I haven't seen many students attend, either. The Herald always gives advance notice of when the boards will meet; so do the radio and TV sta- tions. But no one goes except the trustees. Yet it's the parents' children who are the root of every word at school board meetings. It is the chil- dren's education, and it is the taxpayers' dollars about ?7 million this year, including government grants (also from This does not include money spent on school construction. The City of Lethbridge, in administering every- thing but education for an entire city, spends the same amount of money. Think about it for awhile. (Of course no one usually bothers to go to city council meetings, The money is spent on something of tremen- dous value the future, no mailer how dramatic it may sound. But how many people know how well it is being spent? Certainly not the taxpayers. Certainly not the parents. Teachers can suggest how well it is being spent, Iml they also have a professional bias. Students can definitely tell how well it is being spent {or how poorly as many of them since they are the recipients. How many parents can say they have gone to a home and school meeling in the past six months? And if they have, how many can say they went to learn something about education instead of misusing the meetings to attack Jill or Johnny's teacher for saying they need to do more homework or are mis- behaved. Abysmally few is how many. Tiiere are many things parents should care about in the schools far more than they do, and unlil they care, and make sure they know what they're talking about, they are at best second-class parents. For example: teachers are at present upset about an increase in the number of classroom aides (teacher aides it you prefer the archaic Yet these aides could just be the best advance Leth- bridge education has seen. Teachers say the aides are untrained amateurs who can't help the children (but they will, of course accept aides for typing exams and printing them, and marking simple test papers; this is clerical work, not aide That's balderdash. There are a number of teach- ers who are less-qualified as real educators than many classroom aides. A teaching certificate doesn't make a teacher, but a powerful union like the ATA can certainly make people think il does. Classroom aides want to work in the schools because they like and understand children, and they have interest and concern in great quantities. Teachers are, for the most part, vitally impor- tant to the education system and they can direct a classroom aide in such a way that the aide can add immeasurably to a child's education. (That is, if the teacher has enough confidence in his or her abilities to not fee! threatened.) A classroom aide can concentrate on particular problems a student has, under direction from a teacher but the aide could even assist the stu- dent in another room, after getting the instruction needed. Most of that type of learning is repetition, not deep thinking, but it is vitally necessary to the stu- dent. The aide would ask thf: teacher for further di- rection if necessary, so the teacher's control would still exist. Substantial use of classroom aides would allow true individualized instruction, instead of the weak attempt most concerned schools make at il now, and volunteers could be sought from among parents for part of the work. The teacher would be free lo concentrate on helping other students to learn. But how many parents understand what any of this is all about? They can get one biased viewpoint from a teacher, with all the potential professional jealousies and insecurities involved. They can get other, less-biased viewpoints from other people. It's a real responsibility, no matter how common it might seem: parents have their children's futures in their hands, and if they don't take some notice, if they don't tell the school board and the govern- ment what they want, and whether they want more money spend on education, then they're giving the government the sole right and authority to educate their children in whatever way it seems fit as the parents continue to sit back and do nothing bill watch and watch, WHOOPS!
