Scholarship recipients, including
Morehead scholars and graduate
students, may find themselves once
again exempt from taxes if a bill
under consideration in the House
Ways and Means Committee passes
The bill would revive tax deduc
tions for scholarship recipients taken
by last year's Tax Reform Act.
The bill, cosponsored by Reps.
David Price, D-N.C, and Martin
Lancaster, D-N.C, would restore tax
deductions for interest paid on
student loans and for all scholarships,
said Frank Proctor, legislative assist
ant to Lancaster.
' Before the Tax Reform Act, Proc
tor said, students could deduct any
scholarship aid, but the new tax
legislation taxes everything except
tuition and book allowances.

Gfomp finds disparity in school
Dy KELLY JOHNSON
' Chapel Hill-Carrboro city schools
receive more funding per student than
Orange County schools, although
both systems have about the same
number of students enrolled.
I A commission organized to study
a proposed merger of Chapel Hill
Carrboro and. Orange County
schools in 1985 and 1986 found that
expenditures for the entire county
school district at that time totaled
$14,550,000, or $2,860 per pupil. The
Chapel Hill-Carrboro expenditures
totaled $18,172,000, or $3,382 per
. The commission recommended
that the Orange County commission
ers equalize the per-pupil funding
county wide. A fact-finding group is
now studying ways to fund the two

"This is not a policy study,"
Marshall said. "It's just to bring out
all the questions. Then well try to
give some direction on what we want
done about (unequal allocations)."
The group will discuss the inequi
ties, but the county commissioners

now everybody isn't worrying about
it. It's real but it's unreal."
The Tax Reform Act's authors
intended the student aid provisions
to prevent scholarship abuse at high
profile, private institutions and did
not realize the impact it would have
on average students, Proctor said.
Dan Rostenkowski, chairman of
the House of Representatives Ways
and Means Committee, had been
reluctant to accept individual groups'
requests for special treatment under
the act, fearing a bombardment of
requests, Proctor said.
The Price-Lancaster bill was the
first of many bills attempting to
amend the act, he said. Many of these
bills have similar, overlapping pro
visions, so it is possible to apply the
bill to other areas not mentioned
specifically, he said.

ity," Marshall said.
The disparity is partly a result of
the Chapel Hill-Carrboro city school
system's supplementary tax. Resi
dents in the jurisdiction of this system
voted in 1967 for a tax of up to 35
cents for their district, Marshall said.
Sue Baker, chairman of the Chapel
Hill-Carrboro City School Board and
a member of the fact-finding group,
said the tax for the city school district
will produce $3,498,000 this year. The
money is used for teachers' supple
ments, reading teachers, support staff
supplements and aides grades four
and above, she said.
Residents in the Orange County
system have never voted for a similar
supplement. If they approved a
supplement, the county would require
a school district tax of two cents per
$100 property tax evaluation to equal
the amount raised by one cent per

Ford said she could not estimate
the ticket sales, but said she expects
that as with many evangelical tours
ticket sales will increase dramat
ically as the concert dates draw closer.
She said this disparity was caused
by a difference in the county and city
tax bases. The Chapel Hill-Carrboro
district is more populated and has
more businesses, so the assessment on
the worth of the land is greater, Baker
Two-thirds of the county tax base
is concentrated in the Chapel Hill
Carrboro district, while the remain
ing one-third is in Orange County,
Baker said the group has met once
to define equal funding. "Per-pupil
funding between the Chapel Hill
Carrboro schools and the Orange
County schools means equal resource
availability so that appropriate
programs can be available based on
the identified needs of the respective
student population," she said.
Marshall said the county can close
the gap in funding to the county and
city schools by increasing the general
tax and decreasing the district tax.
In early December, the fact-finding
group will present its information to
the county commissioners, who will
determine ways to create equal
allocation for both school systems.
The children will receive instruction
in the regular classroom or in a part
time special education class, he said.
"We will try to determine the most
effective practice for each individual
child," McKinney said.
Susan Osborne, co-principal inves
tigator for the project, said she does
not think the disabled children will
be negatively affected by participating
in classrooms with children oriented
for normal achievement.
"Children benefit from being
integrated with normal achievement
oriented peers," she said.
