Part 8: ESEA Consolidated Programs. Hearings before the Subcommittee on Elementary, Secondary, and Vocational Education of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, Ninety-Fifth Congress, First Session on H.R. 15 (July 26, 27, and 28, 1972).

This document contains testimony, prepared statements, letters, and supplemental materials submitted during three days of hearings held in July, 1977. Under consideration was a bill to extend for five years a number of programs authorized in the Education Amendments of 1974. The Education Amendments of 1974 consolidated a number of categorical programs into two parts under Title IV, Parts B and C. Part B authorizes funds for school library resources, textbooks, and other instructional materials; testing, guidance and counseling; and equipment and minor remodeling to strengthen instruction in the academic subjects. Part C authorizes funds for supplementary education centers and services; strengthening state and local educational agencies; dropout prevention; and demonstration projects to improve school nutrition and health services for low-income children. This consolidation was enacted to simplify the administration of these federal programs, and the hearings were held to learn how the structure appeared to be working. (MLF)
