QUOTE: Due to economic reasons many of our present schools are far below minimum standards and hardly worthy of the name. Teachers are often obliged to accept very meager salaries, and in some instances have received no salary for several months at a time. Such a condition constitutes a challenge to every thinking citizen. To obtain for these towns the proposed minimum program…it is estimated that only $500,000 per year beyond the present State school fund would be required.
