Authorization for Voluntary Services of Certain Students; Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Manpower and Civil Service of the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service; House of Representatives; Ninety-Fourth Congress; First Session.
Congress of the U. S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Post Office and Civil Service.
The hearing considered two bills, H.R. 2162 introduced by Charles Wilson of California, and H.R. 3522 by C. W. Bill Young of Florida, which authorize any officer or employee of the United States to accept the voluntary services of certain students for the United States. This was advocated by President Ford in his commencement address to the Ohio State University where he strongly emphasized the need to bring education and employees together in a new climate of credibility and pledged the government's help to create a responsive vocational environment. The testimony presented includes comments from students participating in the Executive High School Internships of America Program, serving as special assistants to senior officials in government, private nonprofit agencies, civil organizations, educational and cultural institutions, mass communications, and the private sector. Other supportive testimony came from sponsors and schools involved in the Internship Program, the Associate Secretary of the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the Administrative Assistant of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, and others. The full text of all testimony and discussion is included in the document. (Author/EC)
