The Life of a Federal Advisory Council in Education.
Auton, Sylvia
Often federal legislation that creates educational programs also creates advisory councils to review and evaluate these programs. Such councils provide opportunities for close citizen participation in overseeing federal policy. The purpose of this paper is to analyze and describe the life of one such council, the National Advisory Council on Education Professions Development, and to relate this to similar councils in education. Reviewed are the statutory creation of the council, data on the composition of council members, funding patterns, and the selection of issues and strategies chosen by the council in attempting to fulfill its responsibilities.
