Plan F major issue in school race

(COnetened frot" Page 31
PLAN H suggests that the
overflow ninth graders ron
Ht High be bused to Sla-
son and Tappan Junior Highs.
Moderate candidates William
Cash and E. Stevens Binder
state that the popoal reflects
a lack of long-range planning
by the schoof hard, but say
they probably wouldn't support

repeal.
They say it would be too time-
consuming and expensive for
the beard to reverse its deci-
sio",
THE JUDGMENT was made
on Plan F "with a lack of c *n-
munity, parent and student in-
volvement," contends Binder.
"My plao is to plan a whole lot

- rI

further in advance," he says.
Republican - backed Barhydt,
Bielby and Wright all oppose re-
peal of the proposal,
However, liberal board mem-
ber Pat Pooley says that Plan
F was approved "without ever
being discussed by the full
scchool board." She reports that
she was "astounded that the
superintendent's plan was nev-
er even brought up."
FRII)L GORl3ON, chairwom-
an of the North Campus School
Committee, describes Plan F as
"unpalatable, highly discrimin-
atory and probably illegal."
She says there has been "a
long - standing animosity to-
wrards the North Campus famni-
lies by a handful of owners re-

tus."
A state law prohibits the city
from collecting property tax
from North Campus residents
because they live on Univer-
sity property.
CONSERVATIVE b o a r d
members and candidates deny
that Plan F was passed as a
discriminatory action aimed at
North Campus residents, but
many say the University should
pay city property taxes, which
are the school system's main
source of revenue.
Conservatives say the Univer-
sity has a responsibility to pro-
vide funds to the schools to pro-
vide for the education of North
Campus children. "I can't for
the life of me understand why
the University isn't meeting its
financial obligations in the way
that Michigan State University
and other state colleges are,"
Wright says.
At these institutions, he ex-
plains, parents who live on uni-
versity property and send their
children to public schools pay
an "out of district" fee to the
schools at nearly the same cost
as property taxes.
THE CONTROVERSY over
property taxes began in 1970
when the University assessed

a $6 monthly fee on each hous-
ng unit in the Northwood ad
University Terrace areas.
Residents have filed a clas
action suit contending that Abe
University has no authorIty to
tax. The case is still in the pro-
cess of appeal.
Meanwhile, many NWr &
Campus residents have bmss
paying the $6 assessments lo
an -escrow fund, which nW' to
tals over $4W,S.
