Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
Hearings held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education regarding reauthorization of the Higher Education Act and related measures are presented. The focal area is issues of administrative allowances for the student financial aid programs and student information. Title IV presently authorizes three administrative allowances for institutions of postsecondary education which participate in the student financial assistance programs. Legislation stipulates that institutions are to provide information about the institution and about student financial assistance to all students and prospective students. Testimony is presented by representatives of student organizations, states, and education professionals concerned with these topics. Hearings also concern Titles IX and XI of the Higher Education Act, graduate programs and law school clinical experience programs. Title IX includes graduate and professional opportunities program, public service fellowships, and domestic mining and mineral fuel conservation fellowships. Hearings also consider Title XII of the Higher Education Act. Among the provisions of Title XII are sections 1202 and 1203 which provide state postsecondary education commissions and for federal assistance for comprehensive statewide planning in postsecondary education. Another area considered by the subcommittee is the reauthorization of the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education, which is authorized by section 404 of the General Education Act. The fund has been laboring to stimulate creative and innovative educational practices in postsecondary education. (SW)
