Page 14-THE HERALD, Prove, Utah, Sunday, April 6, 1975 Problem of Child Abuse Seen As Matter for Special Education PROUD OF THE HOME they are building, these students of Spanish Fork High School not only spent class time on the project but a lot of their free time as well. From left are, Mark Warner, Gregg Nlelson, Kris Cole, Eldon Nixon, Gary A Practical Experience Bartholomew, Rocky Henderson, Jim Arnold, Wesley Sanford, Terry Branln, and Kim Gordon. Class members not in the picture are Paul Bliss, Ron Knotts, and Scott Peterson. Sp. Fork Students Build Home SPANISH FORK - Jay N.ewitt showed the nearly finished brick home with a great deal of pride. He is the instructor for Spanish Fork High's carpentry class and his "boys" had done the work on the home. He called it an experience in practical education and explained that this type of exercise can prepare a boy for a vocation — "one that can help him to work his way through school or help him build or remodel his own home." Members of the class include Mark Warner, Gregg Nielson, Kris Cole, Eldon Nixon, Gary Bartholomew, Rocky Henderson, Jim Arnold, Wesley Sanford, Terry Branin, Kevin Gordon, Paul Bliss, Ron Knotts and Scott Peterson. The brick home, located at 693 South 1650 East in Spanish Fork was begun last fall. Mr. Newitt said the 13 boys involved with the class enjoyed the project so much that their enthusiasm brought them to work on the house not only during their class period but also on Saturdays and after school. The boys dug the footings, did the framing, the sub floors, walls roof and shingling. They also did the inside walls, electrical work, applied the sheetrock, hung the doors and are now putting the base and finishing trim on the inside. Before they are finished they will paint the home inside and outside. The only thing sub-contracted were the foundation, brick laying and heating installations. Mr. Newitt said the project also provided practical experience for two other classes at tlie school — drafting and TACKING SHEET ROCK to the ceiling of a home being built Spanish Fork High School Vocational carpentry students is Terry Branin. Aviation Company Seeks Provo Airport Location A newly formed aviation company, Mountain West Aviation, has asked the Provo City Commissioners for permission to become a fixed-base operator at the Provo City airport. In a private meeting with city officials, the company organizers explained they intend to operate an air ambulance service, charter aircraft, flying lessons at special rates, and a number of other services in connection with the Four Seasons ski resort if the project is built. The aircrft company also plans to engage in aircraft sales and service, the commissioners were told in a Wednesday meeting. According to one city official, the commissioners expressed cautious optimism about the idea, but made no decision. Airport manager David Gunn said the commissioners invited member of the firm to appear at next Tuesday evening's city commission meeting at about 8 p.m. to make a public presentation of their proposal. Mr. Gunn said most of the principals of the company have had some affiliation with the Provo area in the past, and some graduated from BYU. He said the same people also have been operating successful ski equipment stores in several states. Three of the principals in the company are Alan Jensen, Kirk Alldredge, and Fred Ward, Mr. Gunn reports. Currently there are about four aircraft related businesses located at the city's airport. The new company is requesting permission from the city to set up south of the present companies and that the city provide utilities to the site. homemaking. The drafting class drew plans and did architectural work for the new home under instructor Varian Bartholomew. Ann Allred's students in girl's homemaking are planning the interior decorating. It was mentioned that if someone buys the home before that aspect is completed the buyers would have input into the planning. Mr. Newitt expressed confidence in his crew and said Carnovsky's Lear STRATFORD, Conn. (DPI) The revival of "King Lear" with Morris Carnovsky in the title role will open the American Shakespeare Theater's repertory season on May 17. Carnovsky made his debut in New York with the Provincetown Theater in 1922 and has had a long and distinguished career as actor, director and teacher. His last performance of Lear at the Shakespeare Theater was one of the most critically acclaimed in the history of the modern stage.? that any contractor would do well to hire the boys for summer and part-time jobs. The instructor also said he was especially grateful to the Nebo School Board and Principal J. Rulon Nelson for encouragement and support. The district purchased the lot and has financed the building, he said. He hopes the profit developed from the project will provide money for the school. LOGAN - It's Utah law - any person who suspects a child is being abused or neglected must report it to the authorities. "But many people do not understand this, even school teachers who are the most likely to come into contact with such a child. And if they do understand that part of the law, they perhaps don't know that they are protected from libel," said Lionel Brady, special education instructor at Utah State University. "The law reads that any case reported in good faith can not be prosecuted. And in Utah, at least 60 per cent of the reports which do come in require action — more than 4,000 yearly," he explained. Dr. Brady said child abuse is a special education problem for several reasons. First, the Council for Exceptional Children has classified the abused and neglected child as exceptional. Second it is suspected a number of abused and neglected children are in special education. "Perhaps they are there because they are abused to begin with, or perhaps they are abused because they are different," Brady noted. "Here at Utah State University, a number of special education graduate researchers are working on projects to find out who the abused child is and what role education can play in the problem. The professions currently involved in the child abuse problem are doctors, psychologists, law enforcement officers, social workers and the legal profession. "However these professionals are not required to take a college level course in child abuse before they start their careers. We are hoping out of our research, such an academic course will be made possible, and also that educators will become part of the professional team concerned with the problem," Brady said. "After all, it is the teacher who sees more of the abused and neglected child than any of the others already on the team," he added. Brady said child abuse has been with us for ages, but it wasn't until about the mid 1980's that a big push was made to find out anything about the elusive but serious problem. "And many of the accepted data on the subject are not research substantiated — like there are no data that say the child abuser was child abused, although most people accept this as a fact," the special education instructor related. What does Brady see as the total role of education to the child abuse problem? He feels the upcoming role for educators in eliminating child abuse rests in eight areas that follow. — 1 Study of the total problem to gather knowledge on which theory, curriculum and methods can be built. —2 Description of the roles played by other professions involved in child protection. — 3 Description of functions presently neglected or inadequately carried out by other professions within the reach of education to perform. —4 Description of an expanded role for education. — 5 Systematization of the functions best performed by educators. — 6 Implementation, observation, evaluation and revision of pilot systems. — 7 Widespread implementation of the tested systems. "Adequate parenting is taught most effectively not by the psychiatrist nor the counselor nor the social worker, but by some kind of teacher. The need for direct, continuous and frequent instruction in parenting within the homes of known abuse rs and neglectors of children is recognized by most people presently engaged in child protection. "These authorities have begun programs which utilize the services of lay instructors known as homemakers. Their function is essential educational, and educators should be involved with them," Brady concluded.
