Council Opposes
Parochiaid Plan

A statement re-affirming the tra-
ditional opposition of the Jewish
Community Council to public sup-
port of non-public education was
released by the Council's execu-
tive committee following its Feb-
ruary meeting. Directed particu-
larly against "parochiaid" pro-
posals to be considered by the
Michigan Legislature, the state-
ment raises concerns with govern-
ment involvement in religious edu-
cation and with any diversion of
public funds from public school
districts already in serious finan-
cial straits.
Adopted upon a recommendation
of the community relations com-
mittee submitted by Avern L.
Cohn, chairmali, the Council posi-
tion is in accord with the pre-
dominant views of national and
local Jewish organizations.
The Council's statement warns
that "permanent, full support" of
non-public schools could be the out-
come, eventually, of direct finan-
cial subsidies and it questions the
obligation of the state to support
competing school systems as advo,
cated by some proponents of the
"parochiaid" measures. "Any pa-
rent desiring to provide private
education for his children must be
willing to assume the obligation to
pay for such services at his own
private expense," the statement
says, with the state assuming its
proper obligation to provide "qual-
ity public" education for all chil-
dren.

Parochiaid Is Subject
of Two Area Meetings

Parochiaid — the use of state
funds for the support of non-public
education—will be discussed at two
area meetings next week.
