Vast education changes proposed for Alberta Rp RON CALDWEU, StafI Writer RED DEER Proposals that could make the face of ed- ucation in Alberta almost un- recognizable if they were en- acted, are sparking serious dis- cussion among the approxi- mately 300 delegates attending a special conference here on the mollified school year. A lengthy study by Dr. Mel- vm Fenske of (he provincial department of education, is the focal point of the two-day con- ference. It outlines various possible changes in the present school year adopting double, triple and even four semester school years, changing vacation pe- riods and dropping the matri- culation examinations as a method of evaluating student progress. One of the major recommen- dations of the report is that a two-semester system be estab- lished with classes running from August to December and from January to tile end of May, with some students hav- ing vacation at the end of the first semester and others at the end of the second semester. Dr. Fenske said one of the basic issues is the length of the school year. He said studies indicate that a lengthening of the school year results in a worthwhile i n- crease in achievement by stu- dents. On the other hand, an in- crease in daily instructional time has the opposite effect, he said. Dr. Fenske said year-round operation of schools with stag- gered vacation periods is not acceptable and other methods of restructuring the school year would not result in appreciable financial savings. Tiie importance of the report and reactions to it was stressed by Education Minister Lou Hyndman. "I will be listening closely to what goes on he said. "Future government policy will definitely take in account what happens at this confer- ence. "It will be a major factor in future government decisions." Mr. Hyndman said the con- ference, wiu'cli was called by the former Social Credit gov- ernment prior to the provincial election, is an attempt to get wide-ranging views on numer- ous possible changes in the op- eration of schools. "The ideas we are throwing out here are generally for dis- cussion. Nothing is government policy he said. "We want to get feedback and then work out our policy." "When the various groups administrators, teachers, par- ents and others who are con- cerned with the modified school year come back to us with their reactions on Friday, then we will have something to go on, said Mr. Hyndman. "We will have a better idea Decision expected soon on divided school year RED DEER A pilot edu- cation project launched three years ago in Lethbridge may have been the first step in the possible restructuring of the Worth report advanced RED DEER The Worth Commission report on educa- tional planning in Alberta will presented to Hie provincial government by June, three months ahead of schedule. Education Mini s t e r Lou Byndman announced the mov- ing ahead of the completion date during the conference on the modified school year now under way here. Mr. Hyndman later explain- ed that he requested early com- pletion of the report in order 'to generate as much public discussion as possible." He said if the report was completed in September, as scheduled, it couldn't be in- corporated into normal fall con- 'erences. RELIEVES GAS PAINS NEW 1600 V.W.

Mr. Hyndman said the report would probably not be reflect- ed in government legislation before the spring of 1973. The report has been two years in the making. Mr. Hyndman described the report as "the most broadly conceived study yet undertaken in Canadian education." The report is concerned with of education, not the past or present, said Mr. Hynd- man. "It is basically a study to de- termine how our society may achieve maximum benefit from our education investment dol- lars in the years ahead." He said the report will be subjected to further public de- bate and province wide reac- tion before it is implemented. Dr. Walter Worth, who is heading the commission, said the focus of the report is on "educational planning rather than simply education." It is expected to be a major factor in setting the tone of education in Alberta for many years. In outlining the work of the commission during the past two years, Dr. Worth said many ideas have been received in i n d ividual presentations, public hearings, one day con- ferences and special seminars. "There has been talk of re- ducing the compulsory school attendance age to 15, others have said raise it to 18 while others have recommended it be I done away with altogether." Communications will be a key to the future of education, Dr. Worth said. "We have received many ideas in this field teaching students how to use computers, for example, or teaching better communications with each other. We have even had a sug- gestion to teach sign language in elementary schools on the assumption that noise pollution will make everyone deaf in 10 years so they will have to com- municate in sign language." "One of the basic purposes of the report will be to propose adaptations and changes in policy for all levels and forms of education to meet future Dr. Worth said. He said it is important that there be follow up to the re- port. "It is vital that these ideas be tested in the public realm for the approval, rejection or modification of the people of Alberta."

In 1968, the city school boards began experimenting with the divided school year which saw depart mental examinations thrown out the window. This year, several other school boards approached the government for permission to establish a school year fitted Lo their own needs, similar to the Lethbridge divided school year. Now, the government is hold- ing a conference to determine whether the school year can be modified, in an organized way, on a province-wide basis. The alternative could be to scrap the Lethbridge experi- ment and kill what some be- lieve is a valuable step forward in education or to give every school board in the province a free hand in determining their own school year, a move that would result in educational chaos. "I think what we are doing in Lethbridge may have had a lot to do with bringing about this said Dr. 0. P. Larson superintendent of the public school board. Education Minister Lou Hyndman agreed that the Leth- bridge experiment had a bear- ing on the conference. "The situation there could be regarded as one of the reasons why we're he said. "The subject of the divided school year in Lethbridge is being tackled now." PRIMROSE SHOP 313 6th St. S. Phone 327-2244 Pharmacy Facts from O. C.

AFTER EXPLORER Dease Lake, B.C., was named after an early explorer, Peter W. Cease. of how the people would like to sec education changed." If tlie delegates turn thumbs down on a certain proposal, in all probability, it would not be included in the revamping of the educational system. The views of the delegates were to be presented today prior to the conclusion of the conference. Mr. Hyndman said the first outlines of educational change in Alberta will be presented during the spring session of the legislature which will probably open in mid-February. "There will bo educational changes but we can't assess the extent at this time." Some of the changes pro- posed in the Fenske report would have far-reacliing effects both inside and outside the school system. For this reason, several or- ganizations not directly con- cerned with education have sent delegates to the confer- ence. Canada Manpower, tour- ism and transportation officials are attending because a change in the holiday schedule would affect tourism, student employ- ment and the moving industry. Dr. Fenske's 44-page report was followed by two presenta- tions relating to its proposals. Dr. Jack Church, director of pupil personnel for the depart- ment of education, suggested the school year should be lengthened, schools should op- erate year-round resulting in substantial savings. Stan Gibson, principal of Okc- toks High School argued that these proposals would not stand up.
