Ross, Doris M.
This report lists the results of a 50 state survey on education's response to the energy crisis conducted in December 1973. The survey asked respondents in state departments of education and state higher education executive offices to report facts about their state's response to the energy crisis, as well as their own opinions and projections. Seventy-two respondents in 48 states sent back completed questionnaires from which information was extracted for this report. Among the topics discussed are action that has been taken, transportation and heating, contingency plans formulated by states, state legislative changes, gasoline shortages, rising costs, education and the economy, ecology, unique scheduling alternatives, and lesson plans. A copy of the survey instrument is included in the appendix. (BT)
