Education for All Handicapped Children Act: Calendar No. 162, 94th Congress, 1st Session, Senate. Report No. 94-168.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare.
The report of the Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare deals with S.6, a bill to provide financial assistance to the States for improved educational services for handicapped children under the Education of the Handicapped Act. Included are sections to extend entitlement through 1979, to establish eligibility and application provisions, to strengthen the administrative and evaluative responsibilities of the Commissioner of Education, to remove architectural barriers, and to require affirmative action in the employment of qualified handicapped individuals. Also presented are the additional views of five senators who disagree with the full committee's action insofar as it fails to require all states to provide special educational services (including early identification and evaluations) to preschool handicapped children.
