E12-Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 24, 1968 Taxpayers' Revolt Forces Youngstown Schools To Close For Month union to take a stand and a rebellion by senior citizens, who feel they are paying the freight lor everybody through property taxes. And. everyone agrees with School Supt. Woodrow Zmser it is tragic that 45 Youngstown schools will be closed in De Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. To compensate, they will attend class until June 23. instead of the usual June 6 closing date. "I feel sorry for the children." Zinser said. 'They will be deprived of an education w hen it 's so badly needed. "Manv kids need to be in shutdown of schools in November, school officials secured an advance on tax payments using funds set aside for December a month early. Parents were warned then that schools would be closed in December, unless the levy was approved Hunter said he felt 'e L-CIO Vol (;STOW. Ohio ill'li City Councilman C.itsouk's. an as-siljnt high school principal. calK it a taxpayers' rebellion Hanking executive Jack Hunter, also a member ol council, sees it as failure of the strong WL-CIO labor cember because of a lack of funds. The school doors will close for Thanksgiving Thursday and will not open again for the city's 27.000 students until Jan. 2. when the money is available at the start of a new fiscal year. Voters rejected a 12-mill in crease in the school operating levy Nov. 5 the third time the same tax proposal has failed and the sixth time in recent years city residents refused to boost taxes for other city improvements. Zinser points out that the school children will miss only lj school days between the school to keep warm, and many youngsters only receive their hot meal a day in the hot lunch program." Zinser said it would take $85,000 per day to operate the city's six high schools, six junior high schools and 33 elementary schools in December. To prevent a threatened failure to organise a teachers union had prevented the labor union from supporting tax levies. Nearly 80 per cent of the city 's work force is employed in steel mills, and the labor group wields considerable influence among its members.
