sidered by the Michigan Legisla-
ture, the statement raises concerns
with government involvement in re-
ligious education and with any di-
version of public funds from public
school districts already in serious
The Council position is in accord
with the predominant views of na-
tional and local Jewish organiza-
tions, and warns that "permanent,
full support" of nonpublic schools
could be the eventual outcome of
direct financial subsidies, and it
questions the obligation of the state
to support competing school sys-
tems as advocated by some pro-
ponents of the parochiaid measures.
"Any parent desiring to provide
private education for his children
must be willing to assume the obli-
gation to pay for such-services at
his own private expense," the state-
ment says, while the state's obliga-
tion is to provide "qUality public"
education for all children.
The Council statement pointed as
welleto the dangers to religious or
private education that would ac-
company government support.
"The increased government control
which inevitably accompanies pub-
lic money could diminish those
characteristics which distinguish
nonpublic from public education.'
