The Ann Arbor Education Association (AAEA) urged last night that the administration of the Ann Arbor Public Schools intensify its efforts to attract minority group members to apply for faculty positions in Ann Arbor. ' ' W h i 1 e we applaud the administration for their improvements in this area, we believe the efforts need to be intensified," AAEA President David R. Harrell said at last night's school board meeting. In March, Personnel Director Stanley Zubel announced plans for an aggressive recruiting drive to hire more black faculty by September. The AAEA urged that black teachers who wish to help be used in the recruitment program, and süggested they be given released time to accompany the administrators of the school district on an intensified recruitment program. The AAEA also urged that the position of assistant pürson-l nel director "be filled by a black person. vThis action will help provide a more adequate recruitment campaign and lend credence to our earnest desire to provide cross racial experiences for all children, and provide additional black models of success for bjack children.''
