Proposes to Change Present
System of Providing Funds
for Support of Public Schools
It is anticipated that the llunt-Niel
Hon-Monson .bill introduced in tho
house of representatives, providing for
n complete change in the present sys
tem of providing funds for tho support
of the schools, making a direct state
tax, will cause a lively discussion be
fere the present legislature. This is
not the first time the change has been
proposed. For the last several sessions
similar hills have been introduced but
were not passed.
The real object of the bill, it is said,
if; t « > provide for a fairer and more
equitable distribution of school funds,
so that all may be treated alike. It
in claimed that under the present sys
tem school districts fortunate in hav
ing heavy assessed valuations, such as
railroad mileage, raise a surplus for
the support of their schools, in propor
tion to their valuation, while other
districts having no public utilities on
which to assess, but with large school
populations, are badly handicapped for
want of funds.
Thc new bill changes this by sub
stituting the following system as out
lined in its provisions:
"The state board of equalization shall
levy anually upon all the taxable,
property within the state an amount
which, when added to tho income de
rived from the common school fund,
will produce a fund sufficient to pro
vide $20 per capita for all children of
school age in the state.
"The state board of education shall
annually certify on or before the fourth
Monday of August, to the state board
of equalization, the school census of
the state, showing the total number
of children of school age, and the in
come. from the state school fund fur
the preceding 12 months, together with
nn estimate of the income from said
school fund for the ensuing 12

education recommended the passage of
a similar act, but it did not survive

Payette, Jan. 22. -At a meeting to be

This Construction Placed
Law if Districts Expect to
Share in State and County
Funds —Trustees Given Im
If school trustees are responsible for
closing schools in their districts and
fail to hold the minimum terms of nine
and seven months they are not entitled
to participate in either state or county
funds, but if their schools are closed by
order of the health authorities so they
cannot hold the minimum terms then
they may participate in both funds. An
opinion to this effect was handed to |
.Miss Ethel K. Redlicld, state superin- I
tendent of public instruction by the at
torney general's department late Tues
The holding is In substance that the
trustees of both common and inde
pendent school districts have implied
power to suspend school temporarily
any time, subject only to the absolute
requirement that not less than the min
imum term of seven or nine months, as
the case may be, he held during the
Trustees of neither class of districts
have any power t<* suspend school for
such a length of time as would in cad*
the minimum term for the year. Tin*
minimum term ir; seven months in
school districts having less than 75
pupils and nine months in districts
having more than that number. On the
other hand, the local health authorities
have express power to close the schools
at any time and for ar.y length of time.
If the schools are dosed hy order of
the health authorities, as distinguished
from the district trustees, the school
receives its share of both county and
state funds, but, on the other hand, if
the district trustees themselves keep
the school closed to such an extent that
the minimum term is not held, the dis
trict is entitled to participate in neither
the state nor county funds.
