The Changing Map of Postsecondary Education. State Postsecondary Education Commissions (1202): Their Origin, Development and Current Status. Report No. 66.
McGuinness, Aims C., Jr.; And Others
As we face reconsideration and possible extension of the Education Amendments of 1972 and reconsideration and new legislation in connection with the Vocational Education Act of 1963, as amended in 1968, it is important to look at the legislative history, implementation and current status of Sections 1202 and 1203 including the current impact of establishing state postsecondary commissions. It is to such review and assessment that this report is directed. The first section is devoted to an analysis of the legislative history and implementation of Section 1202 up to the point at which the states responded to the invitation of the Commissioner of Education to designate or establish commissions. The second section deals with response of the states, the establishment of commissions, their structures and their proposals for planning as reported to the Office of Education. Special notation is included in relation to the involvement of the commissions with vocational education and manpower planning. The third section is concerned with some of the impact, continuity and problems related both to the legislation and to the establishment of state commissions. (Author)
