The Federal Government and Education: Problems and Prospects.
Burbach, Harold J.
Although the federal role in education has expanded over the last ten years, critics have only recently begun to examine what this means to educational policy-making. Theorists, empirical researchers, and policy-makers need to examine a number of questions. (1) Why and how does the national government involve itself in public education? (2) What is the extent of federal influence on public education? (3) What kinds of issues arise from federal involvement in public education? (4) What are the prospects for the future federal role in education? (Author/JM)
