Harris, ateacher of science at Oxbow, and the head of the Science depart- ment since 1972, feels that the teachers of today owe it to the students to ask the simple question: "will they be adequately prepared for the job market in the next decade?" He feels that high expectation is the key to producing students who will be able to compete in the careers of the 90's. One of Harris' major con- cerns is the "back to basics" move. "We must not allow the current emphasis on the Basic Competencies to become our standard. We must always remember that the Basic Competencies are just that. basic competencies, and go on from there, with much higher expectations for our students." "We are in era of knowledge explosion. We must prepare our students for this new age of advanced technology. It is estimated by some, that many of the jobs today will he ob- solete in the next decade. Education must remain in the forefront of these trends." Harris stresses the fact that education cannot afford to ignore the trends of today and the future. A change in at- titude may be required, it is imperative that education does not have to "catch up" to the real world.

Vocational Open House On Thursday, Feb. 11, 1982, the Oxbow High School Vocational Center will hold its annual open house between the hours of 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. Bob Jones, chairman of the open house and vocational teacher at Oxbow, says that there are "three purposes for this occasion." One is to show the parents what the students do in vocational classes. Another reason is "to help keep kids in school and help their studying skills." The third reason is to show the freshmen -and sophomore classes what the vocational classes are like. Some of the activities that will take place during the open house are: a blood pressure clinic by the Health Occupations class, free babysitting by the Child Care class, chainsaw sharpening and cleaning by the Forestry class, safety films on chain- saws, a seminar for the parents and the Oxbow Inn will serve food made by the Food Services class. There will be door prizes such as one quarter chord of wood, a dozen tomato plants, a car wash. Armed Forces recruiters will attend the open house, as well as representatives from Vermont Technical College, New Hampshire Votech College and the Vermont Nursing School.

Harris, ateacher of science at Oxbow, and the head of the Science depart- ment since 1972, feels that the teachers of today owe it to the students to ask the simple question: "will they be adequately prepared for the job market in the next decade?" He feels that high expectation is the key to producing students who will be able to compete in the careers of the 90's. One of Harris' major con- cerns is the "back to basics" move. "We must not allow the current emphasis on the Basic Competencies to become our standard. We must always remember that the Basic Competencies are just that. basic competencies, and go on from there, with much higher expectations for our students." "We are in era of knowledge explosion. We must prepare our students for this new age of advanced technology. It is estimated by some, that many of the jobs today will he ob- solete in the next decade. Education must remain in the forefront of these trends." Harris stresses the fact that education cannot afford to ignore the trends of today and the future. A change in at- titude may be required, it is imperative that education does not have to "catch up" to the real world.
