EDUCATION LEGISLATION, 1973

Categorical Education Programs

WEDNESDAY, JULY 25, 1973

U.S. SENATE,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON EDUCATION, OF THE
COMMITTEE ON LABOR AND PUBLIC WELFARE,

Washington, D.C. . The subcommittee met pursuant to notice, at 10:10 a.m. in room 4232 Dirksen Office Building, Hon. Claiborne Pell, subcommittee chairman, presiding.

Present: Senators Pell, Dominick, and Stafford.
Senator PELL. The Subcommittee on Education will come to order.

Today's hearing is a continuation of the subcommittee's study of the present Federal programs of aid to education, the problems facing education today and hopefully, the possible legislative solutions to those problems.

The subcommittee has decided on a different form of hearings for this year. In the past a group would come in and discuss the whole gamut of education programs, Federal and non-Federal alike, at one sitting. This made the record somewhat cumbersome and did not allow for in-depth discussions of particular programs.

This year the subcommittee has structured its hearings into subject matter segments. Starting with the administration's special revenue sharing bill, we have entered into a section of hearings on the categorical programs already in existence. We have already discussed reading programs, adult education, education of the gifted and talented, and community schools.

Today's hearing, at which four of the national education associations will be testifying, will discuss present categorical programs. Next week, on August 1, we will return to the topic of the administration's special revenue-sharing bill, S. 1319.

Following the August recess I hope to turn to the following subjects: Public Law 874, the effectiveness and changes necessary in the title I formula, and school finance. It is my hope that we will be able to conclude hearings on these subjects by the latter part of September so that the Subcommittee on Education can start executive sessions in October.

These hearings, while segmented, will cover the gamut of all existing law and introduced legislation. Our first witness today is Mrs. Barbara D. Reimers, president of the National School Boards Association.
