Education Legislation in New York State: A Review of Key Issues in 1974.
The Sub-committee on Legislation of the Committee on Education of the Community Service Society (CSS) focuses on education law at the local, state and federal levels. It reviewed 617 bills on education submitted to the New York State Legislature. Committee on Education of CSS reviewed only those bills which were of special interest. The Committee was particularly interested in bills relating to bilingual education. Similarly, the Society's support of school decentralization prompted interest in legislation pertaining to the governance and administration of public schools of Community School Boards. Previous policy positions in regard to education for the handicapped, students' rights, integration, pre-kindergarten and other compensatory education programs, continuing education and church-state issues in state aid to non-public schools, provided additional guidelines to the selection of bills for analysis and action. The bills on which the Committee took action are listed in the final section of this report. Included in the table of bills are brief descriptions, introductory numbers for Senate and Assembly bills, the names of legislators who introduced the bills, the type of CSS action and the final outcome. The bulk of the report describes highlights of action on education bills in the 1974 session. (Author/JM)
