The Federal Role: Active or Reactive?
Trotter, Virginia
The federal role in education is active when the issues are national in scope (such as in ensuring equal educational opportunities), when a unified research agenda is the issue, or when the problem is assessing the progress of education. The role is reactive when the government must be responsive to the needs of the states and local school districts in the three areas just mentioned. The federal position is not to dictate educational policy to the states and local education agencies. Rather, the government intends the states and local districts to have even more responsibility to determine the direction of educational priorities and programs in the future. (Author/IRT)
