FORTJM NEWS, February, 1955 —Wide World Photo General Frank Howley Mr. Hecht: Bj a program of federal aid for school construction, you will avoid the problem of Federal control because if you put the responsibilit) on the' I.nal iiiniinunily to run the schools, lei pay the teachers, and decide the curriculum, there'll nol be any federal control. If the federal government's pari in the picture is only to provide some e>f lhe- money lo build the se-hools. then there can be no federal control. Thai's the way the system work- in the hospital field. Mr. Garrity: I'm just wondering where this federal aid money is supposed to come from. You mean to tax the citizens of New York and the citizens of Connecticut and New Jersey to pay for the schools that will be erected, presumably, in Arkansas and in West Virginia and in slates of thai kind who APPEARING on Facts Forum's ANSWERS FOR AMERICANS radio-television program, Mr. Hecht and General Howley debate this challenging issue with Panelists Devin Garrity. President of Devin-Adair Publishing Co., and Professor John K. Norton of Columbia Teachers College, with Hardy Burt acting as Moderator. NO says General Frank Howley, Vice-Chancellor of New York University, former U, S. Commandant in Berlin, asserting that federal aid means federal control. caul afford to build them or don't i house lo? You mean to ram litem down their throats if they don't want to have them? OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL Prof. Norton: I would lax the citizens ol the I niled States for a matter which is of general national concern— namely, thai every American child shall get a decent educational opportunity. We are all in the same boat. For instance, if half Ihe draftees of Mississippi are rejected, we have to replace them with New Yorkers. During the war five southern states had over half their draftees rejected. The record was much better in states like New Jersey, New York, and the other states that maintain good schools. Mr. Garrity: I think New Yorkers are just as often rejected. Forty per cent is the average rejection by the draft boards—and some of it has to do with nutritional deficiency and just poor mentalities. And did it ever occur to you that some of those southern stales —as in one particular case that I know firsthand — decided to keep their good farmers and field hands and send the riffraff to the war? Prof. Norton: In World War II, seventeen million men were examined under the draft. Five million were rejected for physical or mental or educational reasons—far too many! Nearly all of them came from these slum areas of American education where we furnish only five, ten, or fifteen dollars per pupil per year. Mr. Hecht: The main thing wrong with schools is that there are not enough of them. There is a shortage of at least 3 15,000 classrooms in the United States. School classes are being held in garages, in basements: 61 per cent of classrooms are seriously overcrowded, and the conditions are getting worse, not better.
