High Spots in State School Legislation, January 1-August 31, 1972.
Shapiro, Frieda S., Comp.
This report summarizes, for 38 of the 43 States whose legislatures sat during the first eight months of the 1972 calendar year, major legislative achievements and defeats as identified by State education associations. It provides a State-by-State listing of association goals, indicates the extent to which these goals were realized, and points up the significant school laws passed (grouped under 18 subject headings for the 39 States represented.) The information reported was supplied by the State education associations in response to an annual questionnaire on State school legislation. Where possible, the information has been supplemented by data from State education journals and legislative bulletins and by inclusion of full texts of the enactments. Additional information on 1971 legislative goals and enactments are carried in this issue for a few States for which reporting in the previous year was meager. No information is reported for Louisiana, Mississippi, or Vermont. For the previous report, see ED 059 539. (Author)
