The primary focus of the Higher Education Act is student assistance, which accounts for some 94 percent of the funds appropriated for the act. Focus of this report is on lifelong learning. Sessions in Hartford and Waterbury, Connecticut examined the program of community service and continuing education authorized by Title I of the Higher Education Act. Text of House Resolution 4531, the Lifelong Learning Act of 1979, is provided.
