Legislation, Achievements and Problems in Education: A Survey of the States, 1971.
Wing, Dennis R. W.
In June 1970, the Education Commission of the States (ECS) collected information concerning the legislation (both enacted and proposed), the outstanding educational achievements, and major problem areas of the States in education. The compilation of this data in its present form represents an updating of a similar survey conducted by ECS in January 1968. Questionnaires were sent to all chief State school officers, executive officers of State boards of higher education, State board associations and State education associations. Replies were recieved from 46 States. The information received has been compiled under 11 main headings, conceived of as "best fits" to the information. Under each major heading a varying number of subheadings further define the information. Each subheading is followed by data of three sorts: data concerning enacted legislation, data on proposed legislation, and data indicating outstanding educational achievements. The information relating to major problem areas is dealt with in a separate section at the end of the report. This report is a record of what the respondents in each State personally consider to be the outstanding activities of their States during the years 1968-1970. (Author/JM)
