Early Alert: The Impact of Federal Education Cutbacks on the States.
McNett, Ian; And Others
In this compilation, five alumni of the Institute for Educational Leadership's Journalism Fellowship Program assess the impact of policies and conditions under the Reagan administration on state education in Washington, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Nebraska, and Texas. An introduction reviews the Reagan administration's education program and budget. A summary of the impacts found by the journalists notes that the poor, minorities, and large urban school districts were hardest hit but that other elementary, secondary, and higher education programs were affected. It also mentions the responses of states and state lobbyists. A brief discussion outlines some of the implications of the federal programs for education. The articles' authors and titles are as follows: Constantine Angelos in Washington, "'A Double Whammy' State and Federal Cutbacks"; David Bednarek in Wisconsin, "Federal Cuts Affect Urban Poor and Minorities"; Muriel Cohen in Massachusetts, "Local Funds Limited by Property Tax Lid"; Jack Kennedy in Nebraska, "State Unlikely to Make Up Federal Cuts"; and Dale Rice in Texas, "'Building a Cadillac on a Model T Budget.'"
