18—Uklah Daily Journal, Uklah, Calif. Friday, January 6, 197^ Pare^nts* rights movement takes aim atschoois By PATRICIA McCORMACK UPI Education Editor Ttie parents' rights movement takes aim at schools . across the nation. A little more tough-ipinded than the PTA, the movement gets help from' the National edmrnittee for Citizens in Education. , Its network consists o^ more than 300 groups nationwide, "niumb throu^ the directory and the names give you a clue to the main business. Some typical names: — The Citizens Information Service, Chicago, III. —The Colorado Institute for Parent Involvement, Denver. — The California Institute for Child Advocacy, Los Angeles. — Concerned Parents for Public Education in Qmncy, Fla. "Network," the committee's parents, guides those in the parents rights movement. The current isSue is a good index to some of the things going on in the mpyentient, —, an education crusade some authorities Ijnk to a conservative mood. . One article calls for more citizen participation in education at the federal level. Another talks about Chicago parents and their advocates who are suing both the Oiicago School District and the State Board of Education for not giving parents free access to .children's .school records — a ri^t provided by federal law. • The first annual "Network" awards also are announced in the December-January issue. One sample: — "Antiestablishmentlsm vaward to t)an Sanfran pf, the Center for the Study of Patent Involvement, Berkeley, Calif. ''Everytiriielcreate a group I think about starting two. That way if the first one becomes a part of the establishment, the second one can come in and kill it off." Dr. Carl Marburger, senior associate of the National Committee,,'in ai) interview listed issues on the minds of paroits these days. They included tenure anfl unions, special laws for handicapped children, the inssibility of the energy crisis causing school closings, the tead^ing of values, unfab dismissals of teachers or administrator^., who express unpopular views. Marburger is one of three "senior associates" on the leadership team of the committee. Before coming to the committee in 1973 he was commissioner of education for New Jersey. Earlier he was Detroit's superintendent of schools. TTie other associates are Stan Salett, former director of education <in the Office of Economic Opportunity's War on Poverty; Dr. William Rioux, former president of Merril Palmer Institute in Detroit — prestigious child- development institutes. "The committee knows \yhat education is all about because we've served at the lotal, state and local levels," Marburger said in an interview. "We are not out to build a big organization but we are out to help the network grow. "We provide information on ri^ts and school issues such as discipline and violence and financing. We get the materials to the parents and that helps thfem to get involved. There is some evidence it is wolfing. Marburger said citi- "zeits are becoming involved in education budgets, in curriculum development, in helping to decide what their kids learn in schoOl. The committee offers a free Parent Rights Card to anyone who calls their toll free number — 800-NETWORK. Or sends a self-addressed envelope and request to Parents' Network, < 410 Wilde Lake. Village Green, Columbia, Md. 21044. On the card are listed parents' legal rights in education. The National Committee for atizens in Education fu^t was callrf the National Committee for Support of the Public •Schools. This year's model is ohiy 433,000 (pennies) PAWTUCKET, R.l. (UPI) — A penny here and a penny there adds up. Pharmacist Norman Rondeau bought a new car Wednesday with 433,000 pennies. The V/2. tons of coins in 86 cloth sacks were taken to the auto dealer in a pickup truck. kondeau said he saved pennies paid to him by his customers for four years. He said it's easier than saving dollars. "When you have a dollar, you're going to spend it, but you're not going to put together a roll of pennies just to take to the store," he said.
