Serving the needs of the school-going population in 
years gone by was relatively simple and inexpensive. 
Provided with little beyond book learning, few acquired 
what was equivalent to a high school education. 

During the first half of this century, the high school 
still had as a primary aim the preparation of students 
for college, but there also was a movement to provide 
some vocational training or experience in the area of 
the practical arts. Often as not, people looked upon the 
vocational phase of secondary training as providing a 
front of recruits for local business and industry. 

Today, American schools are fully committed to the 
philosophy of educating all of the children of all of the 
people, and applies not only to that segment of youth 
considered educable, but trainable. Public pressure is 
being brought to bear on the schools to provide facili- 
ties and training for many who normally would be 
deprived. While we respect the fact that the schools 
will not always meet all of the needs of those who 
attend, nevertheless, the challenge must be met as 
successfully as possible. The public schools will be 
counted upon to carry the biggest share of the load — 
if for no reason other than mounting enrollments. 

This brings us to the crux of the problem. The con- 
tractual arrangement with the Governor Wentworth 
Regional School District will terminate in June of this 
year. The citizens of Brookfield are faced with several 
possibilities which are listed below: 

1. Renew your contractural arrangement with the 
Governor Wentworth Regional School District. 

2. Negotiate a contractural arrangement for the 
elementary children with neighboring Wakefield 
School District. 

3. Buy into the Governor Wentworth Regional 
School District.

The decision is yours, in light of the above, it is 
recommended that some sort of long term arrangement 
can be agreed upon. 

In conclusion, we should like to express our apprecia- 
tion for the cooperation given us during the year by 
the citizens and School Board of Brookfield. 

Respectfully submitted, 

RAMON MARTINEAU 

Supt. of Schools
