Poles knock slow reforms
Prime Minister urges faster democratization of Poland

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Prime
Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki asked par-

democratic elections for local governments,
saying Communist holdouts are resisting
"The government's most important task
next to leading the nation out of economic
collapse is the building of a strong and
stable democratic foundation for a demo-
cratic system," Mazowiecki told the Sejm,
the lower house of parliament.
"Until we create a real 'self-govern-
ment,' we will not defeat the resistance that
we meet while introducing reforms."
Parliament members rose to their feet
and applauded his call for earlier elections,
despite concern that Poles may blame the

The 53-year-old Barry, a former civil

joins universities, K

-12 schools

by Christine Kloostra
Daily Government Reporter
A partnership between the state's
universities and K-12 schools is be-
ing established as part of Governor
James Blanchard's agenda to increase
the quality of education in Michigan.
The Michigan Partnership for
New Education will link the research
capabilities of the University of
Michigan, Michigan State Univer-
sity and Wayne State University

The Michigan basketball team,
no matter where it travels, makes
sure the paying customers get their
money's worth - right to the final
second. After a two-point loss to
start Big Ten play, the Wolverines
won two games by four points and
then snuck by a young Ohio State
team, 90-88, last night at Crisler
Michigan (13-2 overall; 3-1 Big
Ten) pulled off the win first by
erasing a seven-point deficit with
just over 14 minutes left to play,
then by holding off a late Ohio State
(8-6; 3-2) surge after they had taken
a nine-point lead of their own.
With five seconds left and
Michigan clinging to a three-point
* lead, Alex Davis threw up a three-
point shot from the left side that hit

with the public school system "to
develop, test, evaluate and share new
methods of teaching and learning,"
according to Blanchard's "Michigan
Strategy," an expansion of his State
of the State Address last week.
The five-year partnership plan is
an addition to the Educational Exten-
sion Service, a program proposed by
Blanchard in 1988.
The program established
"professional development schools"
where education students and univer-

sity faculty work to apply and test
new teaching techniques and learn
first hand what does and doesn't
work, said Ron Koehler, editor in
the Governor's News Office.
Sue Poppink, special assistant to
the partnership, said Michigan State
University is already working with
six of these schools.
The University of Michigan has
not yet established any professional
development schools, but over the

next five years plans to develop the
program in three or four local
schools, said Cecil Miskel, Dean of
the School of Education.
Benefits of the partnership in-
clude increased practical experience
for education students, and a method
for university faculty to learn to-
gether with public school faculty,
Poppink pointed out.
"The purpose of the partnership
will extend (the Education Extension
program) throughout the education al

system and have educators at the lo-
cal school level and universities
learn not only what works best, but
the implementation behind it,"
Koehler said.
An additional 18-24 professional
development schools in K-12
schools will be created by the part-
Announcing the partnership at
last month's Regent's meeting,
University President James Duder-

stadt said its formation illustrates
that the state's universities are will-
ing to address the serious problem of
the quality of K-12 education in
The $48 million partnership was
proposed by Michigan business
leader A. Alfred Taubman, who is
also providing financial support,
Koehler said. The universities, the
state and the private sector will
commit $16 million each over the
next five years.

Events celebrate
Asian American
heritage month

by Britt Isaly
Daily Staff Writer
Five hundred members of the,,
three largest Asian American campus
groups have been celebrating their
cultural heritage since the beginning
of the decade.
January has been designated by
the Michigan Student Assembly's
Minority Affairs Commission - in
collaboration with the Asian
American Association (AAA), the
Korean Student Association (KSA),
and the University of Michigan
Asian Student Coalition (UMASC)
- to be "Asian American month."
The month began with an AAA-
sponsored guest performance by the
comedian Phil Nee Wednesday night
at the Michigan League.
"One of the jokes about Asians is
that we cannot speak English," said
A A A l. T... .

concerns Asian Americans have with
regard to the public issues that Dr.
King was interested in: equality,
diversity, and things like this."
Generally, the highlight of Asian
American month is the Lunar New
Year Celebration, which will be held
in Couzens cafeteria Jan. 27. The
Union will also present a display of
Asian American artwork, currently
on exhibition in the Union Art
The three campus groups
sponsoring the month receive their
funding from University Housing,
campus libraries, and member
contributions, said AAA President
and UMASC member Lawrence Wu.
Although all three groups are
designed to bring Asian American
students together, Wu said the
groups have different purposes.
