It was delivered to the board shortly before the board meeting last Monday night). SUBJECT: Analysis of the presentation by the Americans United For Separation Of Church And State. One week ago, a presentation was made by the Americans United For Separation Of Church And State against requests made by the non-public schools for aid via the Auxiliary Service Act and Shared-Time laws. While much could be written regarding the nature and source of their views, we instead present a few brief items for your consideration. 1. The Americans United tried to emphasize that you are a public school board and thus that your only concern is public school education. However, because of the Minimum Standards Act and Shared-Time Laws of 1S65, the Driver Education Law, the Auxiliary Service Act and implementation of Federal laws, your role has been expanded to think also of non-public school students. 2. The Americans United inferred on page one of their presentation that you are to consider questions of constitutionality of the non-public school request. Your obligation is not to decide •questions of constitutionality. Your obligation is to implement laws. The courts decide constitutionality. The legislature by overwhelmingly enacting this law felt it to be constitutional and thus gave it to you as a school board to implement. 3. The Americans United implied that we are a segregated school, that we discriminate against certain students for admission. This is not true locally, nor state-wide. Our doors are open to all regardless of race, religion, origin, economic or academic ability, etc.,-in fact, to receive Federal aid we have to agree to such status. No child has ever been denied education because of afore mentioned factors. 4. The Americans United referred to certain Supreme Court justices lor support of their arguments. They should have been consistent in quoting legal opinions because the majority of cases uphold aid to non-public schools. They merely quoted opinions that were opposed. 5. The Americans United attacked the implementation of the Auxiliary Service Act because it was passed on the last day of the session. . Would they therefore logically follow and attack all bills passed on the last day of a session? 6. The Americans United on page five of their presentation argued that it's not necessarily "just a matter of time" before you'll have to provide such public funds to non-public schools. In the March issue of their magazine, "Church and State", their organization listed 80% of the States of the Union as having legislative and court battles over aid to non-public schools this year. Isn't it really just a matter of time before aid is given? L\ SUMMARY, in answering the charge that private schools serve private interests, may we cite a recent communication of Pastor Cleo Kautsch to you, the board members. He stated: "Private schools also serve public interests. It is the public interests which our State law recognized by its Auxiliary Services and Shared-Time Acts." Could any board member state that Garrigan High School and the nonpublic grade schools have not served the public interest for years?
