Willie Anderson, president of the Forsyth Association sai<

decline in enrollment 891 students or 1 teacher of every 10 :j:j
students," was the reaction of Eysenbach, who added 1
, that he didn't believe that the end justified the means.
"This year, as in years past, we have had classes over ?
the state maximum and we're talking about cutting even jj:
deeper into that ratio making matters worse," he said. &
Anderson called the probable budget cuts, "an unfor- &
tunate situation." >tj
Things are a bit premature, and we would have to s
know more before we could anticipate any action, but I :j:; S
am very distressed by the sounds coming from the county :? v
commissioners. They're out to make some big cuts," h
Anderson said. 3 b
Both Eysenbach and Anderson agreed that they b
definitely oppose the elimination of the Strings Program. |j
According to Anderson, Adams' figures indicating g g
that a little over 100 students participated in the program $
was erroneous. r(
"The number of students enrolled in the Strings Pro- a
gram is 1092, most of whom would not be able to afford | ^
this type of training otherwise," said Anderson who add- a
ed that he believes that "disadvantaged," students would
be the ones to suffer further. \
''There will be students, a few, who will be able to take n
private lessons, but what about the homes with several K tt
children, or the average home where the parents have in- >:j p

in the school lunch program and projected reductions in
the Title J program.
According to Father Michael Curry, NAACP education
chairperson, if Title I is reduced as recommended by
Superintendent Dr. James A. Adams, it will eliminate 96
student participants in the Elementary and Intermediate
Reading Laboratory; ~ 150 students in the Junior High
Reading Lab; 300 students in the Junior High Math Program
and 881 students in High School Mathematics programs.
"Nine schools technically categorized as ineligible but
legally eligible under continuing eligibility provision of
the law, are eliminated from the program. In one school
for example, 60.9 percent of the students are considered
educationally deprived while 29.36 percent are considered
low income. Assuming the federal cut in the program that
school would no longer participate in the program,"
In a prepared statement released Tuesday Curry said,
"the Annual Evaluation Renort on

Education Programs 1979-80 documented the fact that
these programs which are designed to improve reading
and mathematics proficiency have enabled student participants
to achieve educational progress and, in most
cases, achieve significant educational progress.*'
He continued, "It is our belief that these compensatory
programs which reach out to educationally deprived and
low income children in particular in the areas of reading
and math, are not ancillary, auxiliary or extra. Because
they seek to remediate math and reading weaknesses they
are essential to the academic program of the school
