Needs of Elementary and Secondary Education for the Seventies; a Compendium of Policy Papers. Compiled by the General Subcommittee on Education, Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, Ninety-First Congress, First Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The General Subcommittee on Education of the House Committee on Education and Labor has compiled policy papers on the educational needs of the seventies in order to deepen Congressional understanding of these issues. The first section of the compendium consists of essays which have been prepared at the invitation of the Subcommittee by a distinguished group of men, considered to reflect perhaps every shade of opinion about education. They have been asked both to predict what will be the compelling issues of the seventies and beyond and to suggest potentially fruitful alternatives. The second section of the anthology is comprised of the formal statements which were submitted by witnesses when they testified at the Subcommittee hearings. The essays focus on such subjects as educational finance, school construction, research and development, educational technology, evaluation and accountability, education of culturally and ethnically diverse populations, educational planning and management, reading, school governance, the application of systems analysis techniques to education, early childhood education, aid to private schools, occupational education and training, and the selection, training, and compensation of teachers and paraprofessionals.
