Kimball House of Representatives, State of Iowa (This is the conclusion in a series of three articles on the pending school reorganization.) PART III WHY IMMEDIATE ACTION IS NECESSARY The first big reason why immediate action on the reorganization issue is necessary is the education of our young people. The second reason is that its either clone now or IT IS TO BE REQUIRED BY THE STATE LEGISLATURE IN THE NEAR FUTURE. Many say ( I ) West Central is large enough already and (2) our kids will get an adequate education as the systems are today. The fact that West Central is large enough is true. But, will it be ten years from now? Remaining as we are today means we have planned a few years ahead. That is good. But, the approval of the new district means that we have looked at least 30 years ahead. We have insured ourselves against change lor that long! An adequate education is wonderful, but we must give the best to let our youth compare favorably, educationally, with those of all other and larger schools. Actually, there is little or no choice. So, if for these imminent reasons we must face the reorganization prospect, let us do it now, while we are free to work it out in such a way that the most people can be happy with its result. The present plan has been worked out by conscientious men from all parts of the proposed district. It would appear that the interests of the greater number of people have been served thru-out the planning of the present proposed merger. Some facts concerning the district have been misconstrued and/or misinterpreted. Fact No. I : The new high school will NOT be located in Fayette. It will be located in a place that is very near or exactly the geographical center of the district. Fact No. 2 : Westgate Alpha, WILL retain her local grade school. The country school is a thing of the past. And the sooner people realize this fact, the better off our whole educational set-up is going to be. Iowa has always been a progressive state in the field of education. It must remain that way. But, it cannot do so by retaining antique methods of education. We We must live in our day. We must meet the standards of our day. It is a matter of tradition versus convention. The conventional system has been outmoded by advances in technology, educational methods and rapid strides in transportation and communication. To truly live up to the tradition of Iowa we must retain that aggressive, progressive spirit. In old Hebrew theology was the idea that, the chil- ren of the coming generation must suffer for the sins of the parents. It is no less true that reluctance to act in a case such as school reorganization constitutes a "sin" in that field. It is certainly true that the same defection will cause the children of the coming generation to suffer Except in rare cases, children of smaller schools do not enter college today with an education equal to that of students from the larger schools with the variety of subjects. If schools reorganization will accomplish this, then surely we are foolish to linger as we are. A very fine young man, graduating from Fayette High School, not long ago, has learned this fact the hard way by struggling at Ames; he'll make good. It's his nature. But, there's no reason why some of the subjects he is taking now could not have been taught in high school. All we have to do is make them available—the kids will take them from there. To have an education or not to have one was the question of some years ago. Now the question is that of having an education or the best education. It is time, as we move into this project, that all citizens concerned look at the 'big picture.' Look at where we are and where we are going. Look at the difference in the types of education (we see them all the time from the statewide point of view in the capitol). It is a matter of choice for us . . . shall we stay where we are or go forward? Above all, realize that we, here in the mid-west, have the finest young people in the whole nation! We have a philosophy and a way of life that combines the . £L . .1.1. • • 1 1 1.1 I ravin;: recently "browsed" lliru the cieat department stores on Stale Street and visited the Art Mn-eum on Michigan Ace., we shall attempt a few gentle '.eords in ie;:ard milady's style, and "mod; nustic" art. • • * » • We think all women who care 'now lliev look, should band to- ."j-tbrr, can;.: up on the fashion designers, chase them into the der.) sea, and hold 'em under a wmle.
