Questions Persist About Federal Support for Development of Curriculum Materials and Behavior Modification Techniques Used in Local Schools. A Report.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
Concern about curriculum materials and behavior modification techniques being used in local schools continue to be expressed by individuals, groups, and organizations. One concern is the belief that federal funding for development and dissemination of material and techniques is an encroachment on local curriculum decisions. Although existing laws, regulations, and procedures limit federal influence, questions persist about the proper federal role in such activities. This report identifies the major federal programs that fund the development and dissemination of curriculum materials and behavior modification techniques for use in local schools. Total federal funding of such activities could not be determined; however, indications of the extent and nature of federal activities are included. Much of the report consists of an extensive appendix that provides information on a program-by-program basis for the relevant federal programs administered by the Office of Education, National Institute of Education, National Institute of Mental Health, National Science Foundation, and National Endowment for the Humanities, respectively.
