VOTE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY- MAY 2nd RALPH YARBOROUGH SENOIR SENATOR from TEXAS WASHINGTON America's high schools — from the ghettoes to Ihe suburbs — today are like boiling cauldrons. No one can predict when the pot will boil over, but already violence, vandalism and noisy protest are common. In February alone, a government survey showed, there were 43 Incidents at high schools resulting In police being called 19 limes to make 257 arrests — and many incidents go unrcported. These confrontations are like the steam issuing from a bubbling teapot — they are Ihe most visible manifestation of the widespread student unrest detected in a nationwide Associated Press study. The study indicated that only a tiny percentage of the nation's 18 million high school students arc In open, sometimes violent, rebellion. But. at the -mine time, student complaints dominated scores u/ interviews. Sludenls from New York Io California say their schools operate in a prison-like atmosphere-armed guards, fenced schoolyard* and in one California school locked classroom doors. Other complaints range from racism to censored newspapers, uninspired teachers to unrealistic regulations and refusal of school administrators and parents to listen to student demands for and education relevant to the world they must compete In. Government officials are becoming Increasingly con. cerned. "I'm upset with Ihe trend In the country," said youthful Tobey Moffett. director of the U.S. Office of Education's section on students and youth. As incidents increase there Is a demand for stricter rules by parents, administrators and politicians. "There is no evidence that tougher rules. stricter discipline or calling Ihe police cools the situation. It only serves to increase the tension You are nol going to scare kids into submission They have neither respect nor fear ol the police." What's behind the widespread unrest ami the more limited outright rebellion and raclicaluatmii uf America's teen-ager*? It's a complicated jigiaw punle. but students say they arc reacting to racism, poverty, war. low quality of education and denial of their rights by*. administrators, parents and politicians. "The current generation in the high schools has discovered that the situation they confront as students is inhuman and the slatiu Ihey hold is one of subjugation," said leiu-lier Marc l.ibarle in the Introduction of a book he co edited, "The High School llevohilionarlcs." "There is nothing radical about wluit (he students are asking the right to form their clubs such as anti-war or political, the rlghl to dress as they wish, Ihe right to a fair trial if iiccustil," said Ira liliisser.
