The Ann&rbor Principáis' Association voted Monday to support incumbent School Board members Henry JohnSon and Ronald Bishop for re-election in the June 12 election. "We believe that both of these candidates have, in their statements and by their votes, expressed the kind of concerns we feel are vital in providing the kind of leadership needed in the search for answers to the m a n y problems we face," the AAPA statement said. "Public education is under serious attack and there are those who feel that the only way to save the schools is through a return to the basics - to teach reading, writing and artithmetic. Others teel more radical changes are req u i r e d to make education more relevant for all students. "T h e manner of financing public education is likewise under attack. Some courts have already ruled that the property tax as a means of financing the schools is discriminatory, yet the real solutions are yet to be devised. All of these questions require hard, thoughtful answers, and involve a Board of Education whose members are equally concerned about a quality education equally available to all students," the AAPA said.
