CHAMBER MEETING AT G & B Quality and Economy Keys To Education Program "Quality and economy are key words in a four-point program needed for Iowa schools", said listiicts formed during the last half of Hlf.7, replacing 112 old districts. However, size is not always the answer because neither economy or quality are increased after a reasonable number of students are obtained, "A broader base for local school taxes is needed. Property alone is not adequate. Increased property taxes in the last two years for local schools have amounted to 20 million dollars with no increase in state aid. And the budget, for 1D50, now being prepared, indicate a large property tax irv.Teasc for next year. The time has come for property tax . relief through increased aid for local schools.

"These points include, (1) good instruction, (2) well planned reorganizations, (3) state financial aid for local schools, and (4) adequate college buildings so a college education is available lo all qualified Iowa students. Quality education means well trained teachers who know their subjects as well as how to teaoh. Since Iowa has many teachers who have not had the training required for the subjects they teach, this is an objective that should be emphasized. Economy as well as quality in Iowa schools can 'be achieved by school reorganizations that provide full size classes taught by competent teachers".
