chool system approves plan
o emphasize diverse cultures
By NICOLE PERAD0TT0
.. Administrators and teachers in the
Chanel Hill-Parrhnrn school svstem
recently approved a plan aimed at em
phasizing cultural diversity in the
For students, this may mean new
textbooks, said Kim Hoke, assistant to
the suDerintendent of the ChaDel Hill-
"When a student comes in and opens
abook, instead of seeing white children
! performing a science experiment, he or
she will see an Indian student, a Chinese
student, a black student," said Hoke.
She added that many of the existing
. textbooks at the schools already reflect
the contributions, accomplishments and
problems of minorities.
"No longer is it the 'Dick, Jane, Spot'
that I used when I was in elementary
school," she said.
; Chapel Hill High School Principal
Marvin Koenig said that one possible
outcome of the plan would be an increase
of multicultural education in the present
"We could offer specific semester
courses, such as Afro-American Stud
ies, or Latin-American Studies," said
Koenig. "We don't have that here (at
Chapel Hill High School)."
The school calender, as a result of the
plan, will reflect more diverse holidays.
Hoke said that the Chapel Hill-Carrboro
Schools have already become sensitive
to the issue.
"This year, in September, we held a
teacher work day on a High Holy Jew
ish holiday," she said.
The plan requires teachers and ad
ministrators to devote 30 hours to in
creasing their own cultural awareness,
"At least 20 (of the 30) hours will be
used for the instruction of multi-cultural
awareness," said Hoke of the staff-de-velopment
program, adding that during
this time, teachers would learn tech
niques in fostering cross-cultural ac
tivities among their students.
"Five hours may be used to attend
multi-cultural events, such as the
American Dance Festival in Durham
anything that would expand a staff
member's multi-cultural awareness,"
Koenig said no single incident of
discrimination or racism necessitated
the idea for the plan, which has been in
the works for about a year and a half
under the guise of a task force co-chaired
by Margo Crawford, director of the

Black Cultural Center at UNC.
But, he said, there was a need for
more "appreciation" of minorities.
"There is not the racial sensitivity we
once knew in the schools," he said,
referring to the achievements of the
Civil Rights movement. "There is a
lack of patience and tolerance on both
sides of the blackwhite issue."
This intolerance, Koenig said,
manifested itself at Chapel Hill High
School during programs for Black
History Month in February.
'There was a lack of appreciation on
the part of some kids, who didn't see the
reason for the program," he said.
Koenig added that there were 1 5 black
students in the 22 honors classes at the
high school, and he expressed hope that
these numbers would increase through
the implementation of the program and
teachers' increased cultural awareness.
"You don't see a whole lot of blacks
in the A.P. courses. That has not been
the ethos of the black student," he said,
adding that data would have to be col
lected to determine the reasons for the
low number of blacks in honors courses.
Community members will contrib
ute to the success of the program, Hoke
said. This could mean that educators
and residents with culturally diverse
backgrounds would be invited to speak
to students and staff members, she said.
"The UNC campus would be a
wonderful resource for tapping people
who have those strengths," Hoke said,
adding that the task force was planning
to hold district events to gain support.
HERE'S WHY MORE AND MORE
ARE SAYING IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE.
JESSE HELMS SAYS IMPROVING THE EDUCATION OF NORTH
CAROLINA'S CHILDREN IS NOT HIS JOB.
North Carolina ranks 49th out of 50 states in SAT scores. But Jesse
Helms is against all federal aid to education. Jesse Helms has the worst
education record in the Senate, rated zero by the National Education
Association. Just this week, Jesse Helms blocked passage of President
Bush's Educational Excellence Act.
JESSE HELMS SAYS FIGHTING A REGIONAL HAZARDOUS
WASTE INCINERATOR IS NOT HIS JOB.
North Carolina is in danger of becoming a toxic waste dumping ground for
the region. But Jesse Helms has criticized Harvey Gantt for speaking out
against a regional incinerator, and Helms has voted 95 times against
protecting North Carolina's environment. Just this week, Jesse Helms
voted against the Clean Air Act.
JESSE HELMS SAYS HE WAS JUST TOO BUSY TO LOOK OUT
FOR THE INTERESTS OF NORTH CAROLINA FARMERS.
After promising North Carolina farmers he wouldn't, Jesse Helms gave up
his position as the ranking Republican on the Senate Agriculture
Committee. This year, Jesse Helms missed 18 out of 19 committee
meetings on the farm bill and then voted against it.
JESSE HELMS SAYS IT COSTS TOO MUCH TO CARE FOR THE
ELDERLY IN NORTH CAROLINA.
Jesse Helms voted against Social Security 25 times, even voting against
cost of living increases for the elderly. Jesse Helms voted against
Medicare 23 times. In fact, the National Council of Senior Citizens found
that Jesse Helms voted against the elderly 99 percent of the time from
1973 to 1988.
IT'S TIME FOR A SENATOR WHO'LL DO THE JOB FOR
IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE.

Area residents to participate
in G'litter clean up Saturday
By NANCY JOHNSON
Chapel Hill and Carrboro residents
will join forces Saturday to clean up
litter along local roadsides at the
semiannual G'Litter Day.
G'Litter Day, or "Get Litter Day,"
will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon
Saturday and will target roads such as
Merritt Mill Road, Airport Road and
Finley Golf Course Road among oth
ers, said Francis DiGiano, a member
of Cleanscape, Inc., the organization
sponsoring the project.
Digiano, who is hoping for around
75 volunteers said 10 roadsides have
been chosen for the clean up.
"We're hoping for a good day and
a good turn out," Digiano said.
Volunteers for the project should
meet at the Chapel Hill Department of
Public Works on Municipal Drive off
Airport Road, Digiano said. He added
that participants should wear appro
priate clothing for the weather but will
be provided with safety vests, gloves
and trash bags.
With no home football game to pre
occupy students, DiGiano said he is
hoping for representation from the
"We hope that folks will come out to
help, and that some University students
will help," DiGiano said. "We'd love
Organizations are encouraged to
participate as groups, and cash prizes of
$50, $30 and $20 will be awarded to the
three largest groups, DiGiano said.
Some groups that have participated in
the past are the Campus Y and Amnesty
Volunteers unable to participate
Saturday are encouraged to have an
individual litter-pickup at their conve
nience. Trash bags for individual
projects are available at all local Central
Carolina Bank branches until Nov. 2,
For more information, volunteers
can call the Chapel Hill Department
of Public Works.
Cleanscape, Inc. was formed in
1 986 in an effort to rid local roadsides
of litter, DiGiano said. With no money
and little publicity, the first G'Litter
Day drew about 80 volunteers and
was made into a semi-annual event.
Last spring, about 40 people came out
to pick up litter.
The town of Chapel Hill now pro-:
vides Cleanscape, Inc. with a small;
budget that provides the cash prizes-;
and pays for advertising. DiGiano said.
This fall's clean-up marks the 10th
DiGiano said he is expecting good
weather, but should rain prevent
G'Litter Day from happening, the"
event will be postponed until the al
ready planned spring clean-up.
