School ^Revamping' Initial Changes Would Include Teacher Pay Increase Next Year A complete remodeling of the administration of West v irginia's public schools system has been proposed in a tentative report by a professional survey group. The price tag for next year for certain recommendations, principally higher teacher salaries, is estimated at $19,230,000. Raising of school debt limits to enable counties tq give greater local support to schools also is among the recommendations in the bulky, three-volume report. A group headed . by Dr. E. L. Lindman of \George Peabody College for Teachers In Nashville, Tenn., undertook the study last summer. It was made for two leg' islative interim groups—the Joint Committee on Government and Finance and the Interstate Cooperation Commission—and the 21-merri' ber Citizens Commission on Education. Findings and recommendations, still tentative since they have not been acted upon by the parent groups, will be' presented at a meeting of the three bodies here next Monday. Here are some major items picketf from the long list of rec ommendations: 1. Amend the state constitution to provide for appointment of the state school superintendent by the State Board of Education. He is now elected.. "It is desirable to remove the position- from partisan politics in so far as possible," the report said. 2. Reconstitute the State Board of Education as a nine-member body, consisting of three members appointed by the governor at large and six members elected by popular vote from the respective congressional districts. The present board is made up of nine members appointed by the governor, plus State School Supt. W. W. Trent as an ex officio member. 3. Reorganize the State Education Department into an agency with at least four major divisions for administration and finance, in struction, vocational education anc rehabilitation, and research. . 4. Revise the. state's minimum .teacher salary law upward. The proposed scale in the repori amounts to roughly a 15 per-cenl increase over present beginning minimumns. "The average salary of teacher: (in West Virginia) lags behind the averages of neighboring states, the whole of the. United States and skilled and semi-skilled workers in West Virginia.' "The proposed salary increases were adjusted to the economic status -'of* ; the state, a moderate standard of living, and to the leve of competing school systems and industrial occupations," the survey group said. 5. Increase the maximum dura- lion and amount of excess levies which counties may vote for, school purposes. A proposed constitutional amendment embodying this principle, to be submitted to the voters next year, received the survey team's endorsement. 6. Raise the county debt limit for school purposes, now 3 per cent of assessed valuation. The report •-proposes increasing it to 5 per cent and applying the percentage 'to ap praised value of property as determined by the state tax commissioner rather than to assessed valuation. The present limit, the report said, is inadequate, "especially when applied to valuations which are extremely low." 7. "Amend or hold in abeyance" an act passed by the Legislature this year, under which counties whose property assessments are not up to specified levels will be penalized accordingly in distribution of state school aid. This act, the survey team said, "penalizes children in the event of failure on the part of the assessing authorities." Noted Names Answer to Previous Puzzle .
