Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Office of Planning, Budgeting, and Evaluation.
A comprehensive report on Office of Education programs is provided in this evaluation of the programs for the 1974 fiscal year (FY). This report also updates and extends the FY 1973 report and provides additional information from 1974 program operations and monitoring activities. The status of the evaluation function itself is breifly discussed; a general overview is made of the effectiveness of the Office of Education programs, and short evaluation reports are provided for each of the educational programs and legislative titles. These reports appear under the following categories of programs: Elementary and Secondary Education Programs, Education for the Handicapped Programs, Vocational and Adult Education Programs, Higher Education Programs, Education Professions Development Programs, Library Programs, Educational Technology Programs, Special Demonstration Programs, and Indian Education Programs. The three principal thrusts of the Office of Education programs are seen as being: (1) equalizing educational opportunities; (2) improving the quality and relevance of American education; and (3) providing limited general support to selected educational functions and activities.
