New Life for the Dodo.
Howe, Harold , II
This speech discusses the Federal role in initiating educational change and its relationship to the functions and activities of local school boards and districts. It is noted that, despite the enormous increase in Federal expenditures, the control over education is still vested in state and local bodies, and this local control may result in both good and bad schools. However, Federal educational legislation has prohibited any Federal control over local districts. Moreover, state education departments have the power to approve Federally-funded local plans. But new Federal programs, while placing greater responsibility on local schools boards than ever before, also offer greater possibilities for educational excellence. (NH)
