The Education Committee of the Central Citizens Advisory
Council has discussed many issues over the past year. We
are concerned that the recently passed School Board Issue be
carefully inspected and monitored to see that the highest

‘* priorities will be those areas in greatest need. We intend

to watch the School System on this Board Issue.

Futhermore, we recommend:

1. The Georgia State Legislature is called to pass the
. following amendments:
‘e. At present the board of education candidate's fee
is $900.00. This large fee eliminates the possibi ity
of grass root people becoming candidates.


We recommend that the board of education candidate's

fee be reduced to $25.00 in order to insure the
possibility of all persons being fostered the opportunity
to run in the élection.

b. Several months ago the Department of Health, Education,

\ and Welfare evaluated the school systems of the United
States and Georgia rated forty-ninth.
In order tc dissolve the education lag in Georgia,
training mvst start at an early age. We therefore
recommenda compulsory’ Kindergarden throughout the State.

d. Funds be withheld until local boards of education comply
with the State Board of Education's requirements.

e. Representatives to Boards of Education be elected by
wards and areas.

advice of community advisory committees.
