Legislation, Achievements and Problems in Education. A Survey of the States, 1972. Revised.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
In January 1972, the Education Commission of the States (ECS) collected information concerning educational legislation (both enacted and proposed), outstanding educational achievements, and major educational problem areas of the States. The compilation of this data in its present form represents an updating of a similar survey conducted by ECS in June 1970. Questionnaires were sent to all State education departments and replies received from 46 States. The information received was compiled under 12 major headings (most of them are subdivided) and was reproduced verbatim in most instances. Some States sent various publications in answer to the questionnaire and, in these cases, the information was extracted and condensed. Each item is identified by State, provided with either a contact address for additional information or a legislative citation, and identified according to whether the item is an achievement, an enacted, or a proposed piece of legislation; or information about a council, committee, commission, or task force is provided. A narrative on problem areas appears in a separate section at the end of the report. The report is a record of what the respondents in each State personally consider to be the outstanding activities of their States during the period June 1970 to December 1971. A related document is ED 048 406. (Author/JF)
