Should We Compromise?

Wednesday, May 16, is the regular May meeting with a subject of more than usual interest: FEDERAL AID TO EDUCATION. To quote from a letter sent by our national president; Mrs. John G. Lee, "Since 1944 the League has favored 'Federal aid to equalize opportunities for public education, such grants to be administered by state departments of education.' There are several matters about which decisions must be made... the item has called for 3 criteria: Federal funds 1, must be used to equalize educational opportunities; i.e., money should be given to states in the lower financial brackets to enable them to raise the quality of their children's education to the present average; 2, must be spent only in connection with education in the public schools; 3, must be freely administered by stale educationa1 authorities."
