During the week-end of Feb. 24 through Feb 27, I had the privilege I of attending the National Second¬ ary School Principals Association Convention at St. Louis Missouri. i There were a number of outstand- : ing speakers and sectional meet¬ ings plus the giant show of new ¦¦ school materials and methods to he viewed. ! One of the most striking con- j cepts that I received from this con¬ ference was the strong recommen¬ dation that students, especially those not planning for college, should prepare as much as possible I for more than one vocation. This j stems from the projection of auto¬ mation's throwing certain skilled j and semi-skilled people out of work. It was also quite inspirational to have the privilege of sharing cer¬ tain administrative practices with administrators from other states and a few foreign countries. Miss Carol John has been foiced I to resign her teaching duties by j orders from her doctor. She must ! undergo surgery soon and will not I be able to return to Huntley for the remainder of the yeai-. Mr. Donald Henne will replace her as social science teacher in our 7th and Sth departmental setup. Mr. Henne graduated from Northern Illinois Unicversity and was doing work on his master's degree when the vacancy occurred. We arc very fortunate to have found a fully- qualified teacher to fill this posi¬ tion. As a result of re-reading our President's message to Congress on Education of February 6, I should like to repeat afew strik¬ ing highlights: "An estimated one million a year leave school before completing completing high school." "Forty per cent of this who en¬ ter college drop out l)efore gradu¬ ation." "By 1970 college enrollments alone will nearly double." "Already over half a million pu¬ pils are in curtailed or half-day sessions." "Adult education must be pur¬ sued agrcssively. Over eight mil¬ lion American citizens aged 25 or above have attended school for less than five years and more than a third of these completely lack the abilitv to read and write." Feb.
