Staffing the Learning Society: Recommendations for Federal Legislation. A Report to the President and the Congress.
National Advisory Council on Education Professions Development, Washington, DC.
In anticipation of Congressional hearings, the National Advisory Council on Education Professions Development has prepared this document containing recommendations about the future of the Education Professions Development Act (EPDA). It is felt that the Act should be extended, but revised to reflect changing societal needs. The document is divided into three parts. The first part is an evaluation of the Act. Although the concept of EPDA is still valid and much needed today, there is some question as to whether the Act has been well administered. The second part deals with trends and issues affecting new legislation, and part three identifies and explains specific recommendations. Appendixes include the following: (a) federal programs with a component for professional education development, (b) descriptions of major EPDA programs, (c) recommendations and views of selected educators and citizens, and (d) names of persons consulted in preparing this report.
