Will Tell Congressional Com:
mittee of Plans for Edut
' Appointment of members of the
hoard of education by tbe Commissioners
and several important changes
In the administration of the public
Schools will be advocated by Supt.
trunk W. BaJlou when he appears the
totter part of this week before the
Congressional committee investlgatmg
the schools. All of the changes I
- T1-" ?in It won oaid to- I '
*r. r?ct11uu win ui^c, v ?
<av. will lie designed for the educational
betterment of the school system.
' Returning today from Boston, Dr. I
Ballou plunged into the preparation
df a comprehensive statement em- !
bodying the changes in the school system
he will request before the com- I
$iittee. The statement will first be ]
Submitted to the school board at its '
meeting Wednesday for approval.
Therefore when it is presented to the i
Joint Seuate and House school invest!- j
tating committee it will represent |
(he opinion of the board members as i
Sell as the superintendent.
?Perhaps the salient recommends
Hon of L)r. Ballou will be for the appointment
of school board members
?y the Commissioners instead of by
' --" ru ntnlot WnnrAm>>
cue justices 01 ni?r J'lou v
<Tourt, as at present. The Supreme 1
?ourt justices already have formally
asked to be relieved of this duty. i
t A larger administrative staff and
reorganization of the salary schedule |
school employes will be among the
Other important recommendations to
lie made by Dr. Ballou. Several mi- ,
ijor changes, which include the enlargement
of the boards of examiners,
Also will be recommended. .
f In enlarging the administrative
fbrce Dr. Ballou will propose that a
business manager be appointed and
a group of supervising principals or- \
ganizod to act as assistant superintendents.
Under this plan the busi- '
ness manager also would be rated as \
an assistant superintendent and ;
would be charged with disposing of
all general routine matters. Thus ]
the superintendent would be permit- '
tfd to give his entire attention to
educational matters, which is re- :
garded as virtually impossible under
the present system of administra- '
By diverting the staff of supervising
principals into assistant superintendents
their work would be
broadened to a city-wide scope instead
of small districts, as at present.
Plans Another Change. '
Another administrative change J
which Sunt. Ballou will recommend '
is that a group of administrative!
principals be formally organized to]
supply resident administrative and >
educational direction in various sec- ]
tions of the city. |
There are now thirty-three administrative
principals in the school system.
but they are not rated as such
under the law. They are described
by school authorities as de facto administrative
In recommending a reorganization
of the salary scale of school employes
it is the Intention of Dr.
Rallou to increase the maximum pay
and not the minimum. School officials
believe that by providing a
larger maximum wage efficient and
well qualified teachers will be retained
in the school system because
they will have some incentive to
work for a promotion and increased
pay. The maximum salary now, it Is
contended, is so low that it is feared
that some of the best teachers will
seek teaching positions in other cities
where the pay is higher than in
