This publication describes the 1973 legislative goals of state education associations throughout the U.S. and briefly summarizes educational legislation enacted from January through August 1973. Additional information on 1972 legislation is included for a few states where legislative sessions either ran late or resumed activities after September 1972. Altogether, information is presented for 42 of the 49 states whose legislatures met during 1973. The Kentucky legislature did not meet, and information was not available from Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Vermont. Information included in this report was furnished mainly by state education associations affiliated with the National Education Association. Most of the report consists of state-by-state listings of association goals and relevant legislation for each of 18 topical categories, including school finance, salaries, tenure and contracts, certification, leaves of absence, negotations, retirement, miscellaneous teacher legislation, textbooks and curriculum, pupil transportation, exceptional children, miscellaneous pupil legislation, school buildings, district reorganization, local school administration, state school administration, higher education, and miscellaneous general legislation.
