Clarifying the Federal Role by Strengthening the Intergovernmental System.
The federal government is trying to do far too much in the field of education, there is no clear sense of federal priorities, and the burden of federal regulation and administration has become excessive. Indeed, the real worth of Washington's contribution to improved education is very much in question. Reform can come about only in a spirit of cooperation and partnership among federal and state governments and the educational community. Both our national and our educational leadership should actively jointly foster processes to clarify and focus the federal role in education. Every action--federal, state, or associational--should proceed with the deliberate intention to strengthen the intergovernmental system in education. Three approaches to consider as methods of strengthening intergovernmental cooperation are given for consideration. (Author/IRT)
