SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE 7 THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 1978 P', !OPL BANK m ii OF CHARLES TOWN A GROWING BANK FOR A GROWING COMMUNITY 00rEST By Dr. James Moler The took a at school md this time told in Mercer to use after The ged for interm a location not parents. Two that district reverse the by having the a bill. During years some attempted to [rorn the State turn it ts was the case concern. It beware!! It until local let the same of the text- I I book controversy, and some of I our local delegates supported  the move. When one hundred legislators attempt to tell a l school board where to place' children from a burned out school, it's certainly time for adjournment. Over a thousand hills were introduced in the House d Delegates and approximately seven hundred in the Senate during the 1978 session to say nothing of resolutions, etc. This is election year and there seemingly was a bill to deal with anyone or everyone's problem. Each of these bills was promp- ted by some person or group of persons wanting the government to solve their problem. It has been said many times, 'heaven help the state if all these bills became law'. You would be Charles Town W. Va. 304. 725.5.5 ! 1 amazed if you reviewed the list. Ask your delegate for a list of the proposed bills and then you will join my thoughts about the waste of time and taxpayers money. This current session could have developed the budget, raised our taxes and come home a month ago. Nothing of significance has been passed because salaries are included in the budget. The proposed new school aid formula has been held back until next year or until the Supreme Court decides the Lincoln County case where it is claimed the same amount of money should be spent on every child in the state to provide equal education regardless of where the child lives. State Superin- tendent of Schools, Dr. Daniel Taylor claims that equal education is when each student has the same quality teaching and services. It would take an additional $176 million to raise the expenditure per child to equal the best in the state. It would take $56 million to bring all counties up to the 90th per- centile. This session of the legislature also shied away from capital punishment, abortion, no-fault insurance, tax relief for middle income, additional services for the elderly and orphan roads. Did you know that there are 125,000 high school students enrolled in vocational education and 30,000 children in the kin- dergarten and ,pre-school programs in West Virginia, each a reasonably new program. Also did you know that 20 percent d all teachers in West Virginia are beginners.
