Faculty petition criticizes Ed. Schoo cuts

(Continued from Page 1)
FACULTY members from almost
every department in the University
signed the petition.
Many faculty members said the key
University committee which proposed
the cuts ignored the value of the
ducation school. Although the Art
School and the School of Natural

Resources are also slated for budget
cuts, those proposed for the Education
school are most severe.
THE CUTS are part of the Univer-
sity's plan to cut $20 million from its
budget. The $20 million would be put in-
to high priority areas such as faculty
salaries, graduate student aid and pur-
chasing new equipment. A 40 percent
cut in the education school would save

nearly $2 million.
Prof. Jack Rothman in the School of
Social Work said the recent federal
government report on the quality of
education in the U.S. should be con-
sidered before 'carrying out the
proposed cuts.
"The problems being faced in
education recently, indicate that the
cuts (to the Education School) willin-
terfere with the capability of the
University to deal with problems of
such magnitude," Rothman said.
"So far there has been almost a silen-
ce in the University community on the
issue," he said.

of the cuts and the future of the
