A2 Board discusses desegregation plans;
sets timetable for establishing racial plan
(Continued from Page 3)
"dangers of specifying (in curriculum)
so young in life."
'Board member Wendy Barhydt ad-
ded that the transportation cost of
magnet schools "might be inhibitive."
Urging careful planning in the
development of a magnet school plan,
board member John Powell warned,
"It won't necessarily rectify
desegregation. It may create more of
an imbalance because minority
families won't pick the school."
" Focus on the Child Plan - It em-
phasizes children's psychological
development so that they can "reason
in a multi-cultural society." The plan
states that housing is the most critical
factor in racial imbalance, and
recommends the board work with
governmental agencies to determine
future placement of assisted housing.
Among the methods for increasing
educational opportunity, the plan calls
for the development of a "Partners in
Learning Handbook," which outlines
learning objectives and the ways
parents can reinforce classroom lear-
ning. It also recommends establish-
ment of a permanent citizens' advisory
committee to annually review policies.
Boardrmembers support this plan,
but according to Dannemiller "there
isn't enough in it' to be looked at
" Minimum Busing Plan - It calls
for the elimination of racial imbalance
with as little busing as possible. Busing
plans would be accomplished with the
least disruption possible and would en-
sure that not only members of one
racial group would be bused.
Most board members support this
proposal. "This is what all of us would
like to have," said board member John
* Guideline Exemption Approach -
It recommends that the school board
ask for an exemption from state
desegregation guidelines. It calls for
the developmentuof new programs for
bringing students in different racial
groups together year round; increasing
summer school opportunities for
elementary school children, and de-
emphasizing concern with the numbers
of students in racial groups in a school,
and instead stressing educational op-
Board members said it was too early
to discuss the possibility of an exem-
ption. "This is something we will have
to deal with later," said Dannemiller,
"but first we have to look at what we
can put together."
School Board Vice President Joseph
Vaughn, however, said he would reject
the exemption proposal "out of hand."
The formation of a desegregation
policy was made necessary when the
Michigan Department of Education
notified the Ann Arbor School District
in June 1978 that it did not meet state
racial balance guidelines in six of its 26
The state's guidelines specify that the
percentage of student enrollment of any
individual racial group in a school can-
not be greater than 15 per cent above or
below the student percentage for that
racial group in the district as a whole.

Luther, who was most recently in
Iran, answered the question. "There's a
residue of feeling against the American
government," he began. "In addition to
which, it's a very emotional time of the
religious calendar anyway. However,
the individual American can wander in

Robert Faber said the Democrats
might benefit in one of the city's five
wards if elections took place in Novem-
That advantage would be slight,
however, because ward lines will be
redrawn after the 1980 census, Faber
In any case, Faber said, local issues
received little play in the last election,
because the Ann Arbor News, with its
large circulation, failed to give much
publicity to the election.
"Because there's a better turnout (in
November), there would be more atten-
tion paid to the issues" if the election
date were changed, Faber said.
"It just seems to me that it's good
democratic procedure, with a small
'd'," he said.
