Basics' stress may be wrong approach
NEW YORK (AP) — School reforms that stress only ‘ basics” have missed the problem for the many youngsters who lack reasoning and literacy •kills needed for job success, according to a report released today
Recent reforms like the stress on homework have helped ease the problem, according to the report. Learning to Be Literate In America It said that youngsters who did two hours or more of homework per day tended to have higher basic reading and writing abilities than those who did less
Teachers are demanding more essays and reports as a way to increase reasoning skills But
that reform, part of the “back to basics” thrust of the 1970s and 1980s, did not produce the hoped-for results, because teachers tended to stress the mechanics of writing, but often neglected the reasoning and subject matter behind it. the report said
"American business needs workers who not only are proficient in the basic skills, but who know how to think and can communicate what they’re thinking,” David T Keams, chairman and chief executive officer of Xerox Corp., said in a foreword to the report
—"We’re saying that we all have to work together There s a strong conviction that schools will do whatever we tell them to Most recently, we said
everyone should be stronger in the basics, and they did that,” said Archie LaPointe NAEF ex ecutive director
While nearly all young people can understand what they read and express ideas on a surface level, “far too many of our young people appear to lack effective thinking skills," the report said
"Unfortunately, this report confirms what many of us in business have known for some time, ” said Keams "The basic skills of our entry-level workers are simply not good enough to give us the kind of work force we need to compete in a fiercely competitive global market This is no less than a survival issue for America ' ’

Anti-hazing bill clears state senate
AUSTIN (API - The Senate alarmed by a growing trend of "Ramboism” on Texas college campuses, has passed a bill that bans hazing and provides stiff penalties for violations
"I don't know what it is whether it is a cycle of Ramboism,’ machismo or whatever. we have to change it now,’ Sen Gonzalo Barrientos said Wednes day before his bill won Senate approval
In the past nine years 40 young people have died in hazing incidents in the United States but the Texas hazing law has not been changed since 1937 he said
He said his bill redefines haz mg — tightens up the definition — cuts out the loopholes and increases the penalties from a slap on the hand’’ to fines and jail time
Barrientos. D-Austin, said he began thinking about the hazing issue two years ago after a Texas AAM University student died after doing calisthenics Last year a University of Texas student died of alcohol poisoning
Barrientos bill. which was sent to the House on voice vote, increases the penalties for individuals who commit hazing from the current maximum of $250 and 90 days in jail to a maximum fine of SI OOO and 180 days in jail if there is no serious bode Iv injury
If there is serious bodily injury the penalties would be a
fine of up to $5,000 and a jail term of one year If the offense results in a death, the maximum penalty would be a fine of $10,000 and a jail term of two years
An organization could be punished if it condoned or encouraged hazing or it one of its members, pledges or alumni committed or assisted in hazing
"It is not a defense to prosecution of an offense that the person against whom the hazing was directed consented to or acquiesced in the hazing activity.” the bill states
The measure would require colleges to distribute on campus each semester a summary of the proposed hazing law
In other action, the Senate approved a bill that would eliminate the one-year time restriction currently placed on foreign exchange teachers Sponsor Carl Parker. D-Port Arthur said if the bill is enacted, federal visa regulations would limit foreign teachers to a three-year period
Currently seven teachers from Germany are teaching in the Houston Independent School District, according to a printed analysis of Parker s bill
State Education Commissioner William Kirby has estimated that next school year approximately 50 West Berlin teachers will be employed in Texas, with 50 Texas teachers going to Germany to study in the summer of 1988Stocks
