Proposed $ 100 State AM
Increase Not Enough
ALL REGULAR ACCOUNTS EARN
The New York State Board
of Regents may recommend a
$ 100 increase in the maximum
per pupil aid ceiling which the
state gives to local school districts,
according to a report
this week. The announcement
came on the heels of the inception
of the New York State School
Boards Association convention
held in Syracuse, New York.
District # 22 Trustee A. Terry
Weathers of Farmingdale, and
Robert Mackreth, Trustee of the
Plainedge Board of Education
both attended the cornetion.
Awaiting comment from these
school trustees, the Observer
interviewed the 9th Assembly
District Democratic Candidate
William G. OTJonnell of Massa-pequa,
who has proposed a plan
for State Aid for education which
will save $ 2 per hundred for
each homeowner on his tax bill
and encourage the preservation
of quality education.

taxable base to accommodate
more commercial and industrial
property to relieve school taxes.
A fair and equitable solution is
for a uniform state- wide real
estate tax with the money returned
to each school district-on
the basis of pupils enrolled.
This " would result in an immediate
savings of about $ 2 per $ 00-
of assesed valuation. It would
equalize future costs and not
shortchange our children's education.
There would be a fair
sharing in each school district
of industrial and commercial
Trustee A. Terry Weathers
of the Farmingdale Board of
Education and Finance Chairman
of the Nassau- Suffolk School
Board Association commented on
the OTJonnell plan for lowering
local real estate tax burden on
financing public school education
as ' fcn idea worthy of serious
. study. It is a step in the right
direction to have candidates interested
in this serious problem.
I welcome his attention.
I wish every legislative candidate
would address himself to
this problem. The financing of
public schools is the largest
