Any increase, he said, would have to be approved by the Public Utilities Board. A possibility for further ac- tion was suggested from the floor that the Park Lake REA come up with a counter proposal for presentation to Calgary Power that would set out the REA's own solutions to tfe problems of how to upgrade the system and handle the deposit account deficit that has amounted to in the past two years.

"Education costs have grown twice as fast as the gross na- tional product in many, coun- tries and this is probably go- ing to Mr. Gass said. "We will also continue to see rapid growth in our technology and a headlong rush for social change." He said the 1960s were the time of rapid growth and de- velopment in education, and the 1970s should be the lime for application of the develop- ments to "emphasize satisfac- tion in the life of the individ- ual." "I don't think it is possible for society anymore to say to a child that, here is all you need.to survive in the future, and to teach you to contribute to society today. "But that's what a specific curriculum drsss to our educa- tion he said. Card Calls For Action., Less Talk EDMONTON (Staff) It is time the Canadian Edueatio Association and education lead ers in general stopped talkin and started working in the fiel of educational television, Leth bridge public school trustee Doug Card said tare Wednes day. Speaking in an educationa television seminar at the CEA convention, Mr. Card said h had attended similar confer ences for the past five year "and we talk about the sam thing every time we get togeth its all talk. "In southern Alberta we'v tried a new approach to ETV and we've found it works ei tremely Mr. Card said referring to work by the South ern Alberta Educational Televi sion Association, which com prises about 25 southern schoo districts. "We've been most interested in rural schools, but we've pro duced a system that helps ev eryone." He was critical of other Ca nadian ETV systems, which of fer programs on a pre-sched tiled basis without much flex ibility. "We decided to see how to adapt television to education in southern Alberta, instead o trying to adapt education t< television programs like every one else has Mr. Care said.

"Education can no longer be the monopoly of youth we need it all of our lives. We've been looking at education as part of a production process for business and industry im- pose education on cur youth as a sort of conscription into the system. "We oblige them to follow the path of higher studies even if they don't want to take them and would benefit from some- tiling else. We tell them they have to continue their educa- tions immediately, or else have a lesser view of their social futures. "What we should provide is for individual ple should be able to acquire higher e d u c ation whenever they feel it best-fits the devel- opment of their capabilities. "Today it's a railway station where we shunt people off on certain paths of our choice, and exclude them from other paths" Turmoil To' Rise In Negotiations EDMONTON Contract ne- gotiations between teachers and school boards across Can- ada will produce "increasing turmoil" in the next few years although there will be fewer strikes, Carmen F. Moir, super- intendent of schools in Winni- peg, said Wednesday. Annual contract talks be- tween the two sides have al- ready reached such proportions "that everybody shudders on hearing the term teachers' ne- gotiations" and the situation is getting worse, he said. Mr. Moir was addressing a panel discussion at the three- day convention of the Canadian Education Association. The average Canadian school board and teacher association spent nearly eight months in contract negotiations during the last year, he said. "These eight months repre- sent valuable time that could have been spent by both teach- ers and trustees in improving the quality of education, rather than in many cases hindering growth of education. "A dispute of this nature, re. gardless of the conduct of the parties, tends to produce wounds that sometimes take years to heal." Mr. Moir predicted: 8 More professional negotia- tors will be hired by both boards and teachers. More subtle forms of pres- sure will he used by both sides, thus reducing the number ol strikes and strike tlireats. There will be less empha- sis in negotiations on salary rang2s and more stress on working conditions. o Two or three-year con- tracts will become standard, in- stead of one-year contracts. o There will be increasing attempts by teachers to obtain co-management of schools on all matters including transfer, promotion, educational policy, class size and teacher certifica- tion.
