CHAPTER 339

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

PROVIDING FOR A STUDY OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM OF THE STATE.

WHEREAS, pursuant to a Concurrent Resolution adopted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware at its 1945 Regular Session provision was made for the appointment by the Governor of a bi-partisan commission to study the Public School Educational System of the State; and

WHEREAS, such a Commission was duly appointed by the Governor, and professional assistance was engaged by the Commission to assist it in its study of the school system of the State; and

WHEREAS, the voluminous working records of those who have participated in the study have been available to the Commission for such a very limited period that the Commission has been unable to digest all of the material available for its study, and it is therefore believed that additional time should be devoted to the study of the school system of the State in order that practical recommendations for solution may be made to the Governor and to the 115th General Assembly; Now, Therefore,

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the records and working papers of the Commission appointed pursuant to the Concurrent Resolution adopted at the General Assembly of 1945 be made available for the use and study of the Commission authorized by this Resolution;
