to appear on the June 10 ballot, Mayor
James Stephenson last night suggested
to City Council that any funds saved
from the proposed reduction of city ve-
hicles be funneled into the city's social
service programs and the anti-rape pro-
Stephenson's proiosal was the result
of a compromise agreement reached
with Councitwoman Kathy Kozachenko
(IIRP-Second Ward), who was previous-
ly opposed to the millage because "not
enough money was being allocated to
social services," she said.
IN THE EVENT that the proposed
millage fails, city administrator Sylves-
ter Murray has recommended:
-cutting off funds to the Community
Outreach Program;
-reducing the number of city vehicles;
-laying off 30 full-time employes; and
-granting no salary increases to city
IF STEPHENSON'S suggestion is
adopted, the number of city vehicles will
be reduced even if the millage passes.
It was originally estimated that cut-
ting back on the number of vehicles
used for city services w o ual d save
$100,000, Although the exact figure is
unknown, Murray now expects to save
about only $20,000 from this proposed
budget cat.
Stephenson's suggestion met with no
disapproval from council and was strong-
ly supported by council members Carol
Jones (D-Second Ward) and Robert
Henry fR-Third Ward).
"IT SHOULD be apparent that we
(the Republicans) care about more than
refuse collection, fire and police," said
Although HRP support of the millage
is not yet official, the party plans to
hold a mass meeting Thursday night to
vote on the matter.
If HRP decides to support the one-
time tax levy that would result in an
additional $1 million in city revenue,
council support of the Inillage will be

Hopefuls split on curriculum issue

Recent academic reforms in the city's public educa-
tion have touched off a running debate between con-
servatives who want tighter city-wide controls on
curriculum, and liberals who argue for more decen-
This rift fuels a major controversy among 11 can-
didates seeking three Board of Education seats in the
June 10 city elections.
FROM 1971 to 1973, then-School Superintendent Bruce
McPherson instituted a wave of liberal reforms in-
cluding open classrooms and decentralization of cur-
riculum decision-making.
Since then conservative board members have charged
that these changes created academic 'confusion" in
the secondary schools.
Some board members advocate a return to more cen-
trally controlled curriculum, citing a recent University
study which contended the city's schools lacked aca-
demic uniformity.
posed 1.3 mill property tax increase on the June 10
ballot has been earmarked for hiring a "curriculum
.oordinator" to help standardize academic programs
between junior and senior high schools.
The millage proposal also allocates funds for a full-
time "attendence counselor," maintenance expenses
and inflation,
Republican-backed conservatives Wendy Barhydt,
Stanley Bielby and Peter Wright all back the millage
increase and strongly support tighter controls over

WRIGHT CONTENDS that curriculum coordination
could "bring some structure, objectives and rationale
back to the schools."
"There is some merit to decentralization," he ad-
mits, "but you can't have a school that's an island
unto itself. You get 12 years of education and then you
have to go out into the world and compete. We owe
the graduating senior the education he is capable of
Moderate board candidates E. Stevens Binder, Wil
liam Cash and Manfred Schmidt support the millage
proposal "with reservations.,"
CASH SAYS he sees no need for a coordinator,
;ommenting, "Schools shouldn't be top-heavy with
administrative types." However, he backs the mill
levy under the condition that it must "augment the
school system's delivery of services to the community."
Schmidt says that he hopes the coordinators "allow
for flexibility and avoid a 'lock-step' curriculum."
Liberal school board candidates Tanya Israel and
Will Simpson, backed by a loose coalition of Democrats
mown as the "liberal caucus," both support the mill
evy with "reluctance."
BOTH ARE cool to the curriculum coordinator and
:he attendance counseler proposals. However, "There
are some items we need quite severely," Simpson ex-
plains, "I fear the school system will suffer unless
the levy passes," he says.
The most conservative and the most radical hopefuls
are the only candidates to indicate their disapproval
of the millage proposal.
