COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, MAY 24, 1947 Arkansas Schools Again Criticized ; Federal Assistance Not The Answer to Problem, fx|>ert on Taxes Says BY BOB BROWN United Press Staff Correspondent UTTLE ROCK, Ark.. May ?4 —Tilt school system of Arkansas mored Into the dare of the na tioruU spotlight lust week, and ".11 that was salu was not complementary. Members of the Federal House Committee on Education and Labor vere told that although state aid to Arkansas schools increased 13s'p«r cent from 103S-193D to 10454«, the Increase In average tcach- cr salaries was only 55 per cen: 'Tiie inference is plain," said Steve Slahl, executive vlce-presi- ^dent of Die Oklahoma Public Expenditure Council. "Too much mdiwy wasted on an Inefficient system, not enough going" Into teachers salaries.".Stahl, the former director of t'lc Arkansas Public Expenditures Council, was areulng against fed*en»l alfi for education. I He told the group thai after studying the Arkansas school system for five years he was convinc- |ed thai the plight of the schools .fc "not the result of financial in- nbility tn snnriort an ndnniuite program of education." Rather, he 'said, "it is due to the continuance of archaic, Inefficient, wasteful school systems." " Stlhl recalled that the Dawson- LIUJ* survey inad? in 1D30. con- 'tained an especially strom; artui- ^nent for consolidation of many .small schools and the establishment of larger fiscal and adminis- tirthre units. i He pointed out that the Dspart- jnfmt of Education had slnted hi •1940 that the state "could plan its School program much more effectively on a basis of 75 to 300 units. each sufficiently large to present : a complete program." . ~. .Instead, Slahl said. Arkansas still has some 2000 school districts -"many of which are unable to raise Je much »s $100 In local school revenues nnd many of which are still maintaining schools with less than : 10 ntitills." \ "In the fnco of these indictments I rio not believe the federal pov- ornmcnt should be asked In dissipate a single taxpayer dollar tc perpeluaEe" "such" extravagant and wasteful school systems." Stahl said. "Nor do I believe any reasonable sum expended by the fcdcr.i government would greatly improvi educational opportunities for ou children until such .condition.; ar corrected. When they are corrected, federal aid will not be necessary." ' ; KIDS: Stay Off the Street!
