Extractions: Until his recent retirement, Richard Baepler, professor emeritus of theology and law, had been a part of Valparaiso University's community for more than 40 years, serving as chair of the theology department, dean of Christ College and vice president of academic affairs. For the past five years, he has been researching and writing a history of Valparaiso University. This article is Part I in a series of conversations with him about significant events in the University's history. VALPO: The University was established by the Methodists in 1859 as the Valparaiso Male and Female College. In 1873 the Northern Indiana Normal School was created by Henry Baker Brown. It wasn't until 1925 that it was purchased by the Lutheran University Association (LUA). What were the times like right before and during the purchase? Just prior to 1925, Valparaiso University was owned by the Brown family and governed by a board. By the early 1920s, Henry Baker Brown had died and the University was verging on bankruptcy. It had big debts and was on the slope downward. The owners were desperate and were looking for a buyer, trying to peddle it to many people. World War I was a major factor in the University's financial decline, because the men left to fight the war and the women replaced the men in factories. The University's enrollment collapsed.

This position was adopted nearly 40 years ago after the first voucher proposals were introduced as a way for southern states to bypass desegregation laws. Over the years we have seen a number of voucher, tuition tax credit proposals and parochiaid proposals introduced around the country. As each proposal is introduced we look at it and evaluate its merits or failings before taking a stand. Since 1960 we have renewed our anti-voucher stand a number of times (In Michigan this is usually every 5 years). PTA opposes vouchers and tuition tax credits for a variety of reasons. We believe that all children deserve a quality education, not just those who can afford it or whose parents are in a position to know about or take advantage of a voucher.

Extractions: ( in favor of vouchers) FREQUENT QUESTIONS ON SCHOOL VOUCHERS 1. What is guaranteed funding for public schools? The state of Michigan used to give public schools money in one lump sum each year. Now schools receive money for each child that they teach. Each year the state uses a formula to determine the 'per-child' funding levels for each public school district. In 1994 when voters passed Proposal A, a minimum amount of funding that each school would receive per-child was established. Schools received a guarantee that they would receive no less than $5,492 per-child, on average. When the state legislature passed the 2001 school aid budget in June, they brought school funding levels to an all-time high, an average of $6,643 per-child. Kids First! Yes! will update the guarantee of 1994 and lock in those increased funding levels. That means an increased minimum guarantee of nearly two billion dollars for Michigan's public schools! 2. Why do public schools need this funding guarantee?

DTA7/1/02 huge battle between michigans public school supporters and political conservativeswho want to funnel public funds into private and parochial schools. http://www.dft231.com/new_page_23.htm
Extractions: Detroit Teacher, July 1, 2002 Cleveland ruling could spell trouble locally The recent U. S. Supreme Court decision in the Cleveland school voucher case could signal the start of another huge battle between Michigans public school supporters and political conservatives who want to funnel public funds into private and parochial schools. The June 27 U.S. Supreme Court ruling has no effect on Michigan. However, voucher advocates will likely redouble their efforts to change our state Constitution and thus allow public funds to pay for tuition at private and parochial schools. But, just as we routed the pro-voucher people at the polls in November 2000, we are ready and able to do it again if necessary. As we know, voucher programs hurt public schools because they siphon away desperately needed funds and redirect them to private and parochial schools. The already strapped public school systems are thus left with fewer dollars with which to educate students. Even with vouchers, nine out of 10 students will continue to attend public schools. Last months Supreme Court decision gave the go-ahead to a six-year-old pilot program in Clevelands inner city. Under that program, about 4,000 of the districts 57,000 elementary-school aged children receive tuition assistance vouchers worth $2,250.

Extractions: The first diocesan school organized outside of Detroit was the school affiliated with the newly dedicated Church of St. Mary. It was begun January 15, 1846 with a small group of Sisters under the guidance of Fr. Louis Gillet, the pastor. The Sisters would soon be known as Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM). The nuns taught their young female charges within their own house until the following year when a two-story wooden frame school was built. The old church bell of St. Antoine found a new home atop this building and remains in the IHM Museum today. The end of the first school year was August 2, when the "distribution of premiums by the Bishop" took place. The young boy pupils met in a brick building opposite St. Mary Church, and were instructed by a Mr. Thomas Digue. The schools remained under the guidance of the Redemptorist Fathers, until their departure from Monroe in 1855. The Redemptorists had helped maintain the schools by their mission work. That and the Sisters' dowries had been used for improvements. Tuition was minimal and was the only steady source of income. Records indicate few boarders and about two hundred day students, although probably not at one time. Several parishioners had complained that the Sisters were a financial burden and the Sisters wrote back from Pennsylvania that the attitude was different there. No salaries were paid to the Sisters for many years, and the parish, unlike those outside Monroe, did not have the added expense of housing and utilities.

Extractions: Detroit Free Press LANSING A randomly selected group of Michigan eighth-graders performed better than similar groups in 12 other states in an international science and math study. Gov. John Engler and state education officials announced the results of the 1999 Third International Mathematics and Science Study, or TIMSS, on Wednesday morning. "We lead the nation in these scores," Engler said. "I think we can conclude from this that our efforts statewide are showing some dividends." The Michigan students came from 57 schools, representing urban and rural districts as well as some parochial schools. Metro districts included those serving Anchor Bay, Birmingham, Brighton, Detroit, Livonia and Northville. The Michigan students performed better than randomly selected groups in Texas, Indiana, Massachusetts and other states, but below the top standards that were set by groups from Singapore, South Korea and Japan.
