An Analysis of Advisory Councils to the United States Office of Education.
Kluempke, Gerald J.
Questionnaire responses obtained from 64 percent of both the 216 members and the 14 directors of education advisory councils revealed membership characteristics, roles, and responsibilities, and obtained members' suggestions for strengthening the advisory council concept. The 16 statutory public advisory councils and committees serving the U.S. Office of Education on June 30, 1975, served as the basis of the study. Members' age, sex, area of employment, ethnic or racial group, political preference, education, personal income, length of service, and other characteristics and comments are analyzed; conclusions are drawn; and recommendations are made in the document. A comprehensive review of the literature includes material (related to federal hearings, reports, and legislation) that shows the historical development of advisory councils. The appendixes contain copies of the questionnaires and letters, public laws pertaining to advisory councils, education-related advisory councils established 1956-75, names and addresses of council executives, and a bibliography.
