Federal Legislation and Education in New York State.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
Every year, the University of the State of New York and the State Education Department present to the members of Congress and the Federal Administration their analysis of key education issues and proposals for related legislation. This 1992 edition focuses on four main issues: (1) promoting technology as an integral part of teaching and learning; (2) reauthorizing the Higher Education and Rehabilitation Acts; (3) implementing national education reform based on the goals embodied in the America 2000 program, the New York State Compact for Learning, and the reform efforts of other states; and (4) building a strong national education research program. Recommendations are provided for the reauthorization of both the Higher Education Act and the Rehabilitation Act. Youth apprenticeship programs are suggested as a necessary means to keep up with changing industrial and business needs. A brief review of problems concerning working students and labor laws suggests the need for a single, comprehensive set of laws and regulations that would allow educators to make decisions regarding work and students. Several recommendations are given to continue current federal tax incentives promoting education, job development and cultural awareness. Critical areas in education research and development, and cultural service institutions are targeted. An appendix includes a chronological list of significant dates of federal involvement in education. (LAP)
