Reagan outlines view on education for PTA
Albuquerque, N.M. — President Reagan outlined his back-to-basics view of education reform before skeptical leaders of the National PTA. He declared the need for quality education in US schools ''must never become a political football.''
Mr. Reagan told the PTA leaders that excellence can be restored without increasing federal support that many of them see as necessary.
In Washington, Democratic presidential hopeful Walter Mondale branded Reagan ''the most anti-education president in history'' and called for an additional $ 11 billion to be spent on education.
