A Driver Education Survey and Analysis of State Laws and Practices Pertaining to Non-Public and Out-of-School Youth.
Central Missouri State Coll., Warrensburg.
The study was made of state and local legal and non-legal problems involved with reaching non-public and out-of-school youth with an approved driver education course; and to develop recommendations and guidelines by which the states could plan to meet the standard requirement. Questionnaires were sent to 50 state supervisors. Data were divided into two parts: that to be prepared for statistical analysis; that classified for content review. Eighteen states reported that driver education was available to all; 32, that it was unavailable. For purposes of coordinated program administration the state departments of education should administer and supervise local driver education programs. State studies of tax fund availability should be considered as a first step to special state financial support legislation, and the 15 states that do not have special state financial support should plan for legislation to obtain this aid.
