Educational attitudes vary in board race

however, few candidates
had very concrete ideas about
wii they would do with a giv-
er budget. Though he has
been a board member for
three years and claims that the
boird "is now at a point where
ie can't add on any more pro'

grams," Weinhold would not
spacify what constitutes the
"fringe areas" that he feels
could be cut. "It's difficult to
fish them out," he admitted.
Dannemiller protested that
candidates who had not "sat
on the board for three years as
Weinhold and Martin have" end
up sounding rather unknowl-
edgeable about the budget.
"It's easy to raise broad things
but very difficult to come up
with a strategy," she confess-
Blue and Jahn, though, did
have a common idea they
thought could save money -- to
have administrators do some
teaching. "They (the adminis-

trators) don't have tenure as
administrators, they have ten-
ure as teachers," Blue com-
mented. "So we can maake ad-

Jahn was more critical of the
utility of administrators.
"I see too damn many ad-
