The Dragon in Washington: Paper or Real?
Burke, Fred G.
The trend seems to be in the direction of the federal government recognizing the state as the primary legitimate source for educational policy-making. This is not to say, however, that the federal government has given up trying to accomplish beneficial educational ends because of the limitation that the states' supremacy seems to posit. Public education vis-a-vis Washington will continue to be reactive until a legitimate and powerful educational spokesman can be developed. Unfortunately, there is virtually no opportunity for meaningful sharing of views among federal and state legislators or among governors, educational aides, and the like. (Author/IRT)
