The Missing Link: A State Perspective on the State of the Federal System.
Ten points have caused concern in connection with the federal involvement in educational matters in the states: (1) the imposition of federal programs directly to school districts without input from the states; (2) the attitude that states have no business inquiring about programs initiated between the school district and the federal government; (3) the reluctance of federal officials to recognize cash flow problems that cause both state and local districts to terminate investments to meet federal obligations; (4) the claim that federal dollars are different from state dollars and should not be subject to state statutes, rules, and regulations; (5) the tenure issue in regard to employees from federally funded programs; (6) the problems caused by salaries paid to federal program employees; (7) the competition for the same "entitlement" caused by the independent action of various federal program managers; (8) the enticement of the federal government offering possible funds to a local school district after the board has approved an expenditure plan; (9) the administrative overhead so state departments of education can create slush funds that can be used by such departments to implement programs that may have been denied by the legislature; and (10) grave concern that federal involvement may create an artifical economic boom in some districts.
