' Fiscal Problems Outlined · Representatives of the Slate De- nrlmcnl of Education detailed seal problems faced'by school stricts i i? Colorado and the over- I problems of financial support r puhlic school* in the state. Speaking in terms of legislative ials, they noted that increases the support given by the stole the public schools in urgently ceded, ; Seek Improvement is Act Elbie Garni, assistant cotmnis- oner for cducalion for adminis- ation. outlined improvement of c state foundation 'acts as one the goals of Hxs state dcpart- icnt in Ihc next legislature. Gann pointed out that property xcs a r c - n o longer adequate to ipport the cost of local govern- cnt and an adequate school pro- ·am. Because of its broader tax- g powers, the state is in a bet- position to support the in- ·casing cost of education than ·r- the local districts. · ' Tiie cost of public elementary nd secondary education in the nited Stales has'doubled every ccadc since 1900, . w i t h ' t h e cx- eplkm of the 30's. It is estimated lat the cost of education in Colc- ido will need lo double in Ihe ext 10 years, he pointed out. Most schodl districts have found necessary to greatly increase icir local properly tax rates in ic lasl few years, This course annot continue lo absorb Ihe in- ·easing cost of education, the as- stant commiEsioner noted. More Classrooms Needed I/cal districts have been un- D!O lo keep up with present class- oom needs. Al a ratio of 25 chil- rcn per,' classroom, over 700 assrooms in excess of those cur- ently being conslruclcd are necd- d to properly house the present chool population fii Colorado he aid.

No school is better, than its teachers, yet o line western states, Colorado is bird from last in salaries o eachers and in the tenure of eachers. Colo.' Support Lowest Of the nine stales, Colorado is owest in' its provision of state support per child in Ihe public schools, Gann pointed out. Only 12.7 per cent of'Ihc state's expenditures during the 1960-61 went for Ihc support of public schools. Highways and road expenditures 'and health, welfare and rehabilitation, both cost more than twice as much as schools in terms of state expenditures, the state department representatives noted.
