ADDITIONAL SERVICES WILL BE SUPPLIED TO THE PRIMARY AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS. OTHER EFFORTS INVOLVE A NEWLY CREATED PROFESSIONAL "COMMITTEE ON SECONDARY EDUCATION" TO SCRUTINIZE THE ENTIRE PATTERN OF JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION, A REEXAMINATION OF CURRENT AND PROJECTED BUILDING PLANS, THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCHEMES FOR AN EDUCATIONAL PARK, AND THE RECRUITMENT AND ADVANCEMENT OF MINORITY GROUP TEACHERS. QUALITY EDUCATION FURTHER WILL BE ENCOURAGED BY INCREASING CLASS TIME, ADDING KINDERGARTENS AND PREKINDERGARTENS, CREATING FIVE EDUCATIONAL COMPLEXES, PROVIDING ADDITIONAL STAFF AND SUPPLIES FOR PAIRED SCHOOLS AND FOR JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS WITH CHANGED FEEDER PATTERNS, AND STRENGTHENING COOPERATION BETWEEN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND LOCAL TEACHER TRAINING SCHOOLS.
