Who's In Charge Here?
Howe, Harold, II
In this speech it is pointed out that New Jersey assumes only 21 percent of the cost of education and, thus, has relatively little control over educational quality at the local level. To compensate for the wide discrepancies which, as a result, occur in schools, the state must set minimum standards of educational quality and must tax sufficiently o insure that they are met. However, such action should not imply state control of school curriculums, and local schools should retain the option of determining how high their academic ceilings will be. The state must also take a leading role in comprehensive planning for higher education. It must decide what range of academic programs and other types of continuing education are to be offered and who is to have administrative authority for guiding the development of education at this level. It is especially important, however, to guard the academic freedom of faculties in higher education. (NH)
