Implementation of Public Law 94-142: The Education for All Handicapped Children Act. Second Annual Report to Congress.
Developed by a special task force, this booklet is meant to define a comprehensive program of health education in the schools and to serve as a resource for the education and health professions. Its ten recommendations to state education agencies and policymakers include promoting school health education programs, providing technical assistance to school districts in developing, implementing, and evaluating such programs, and encouraging federal aid for health education. The manual defines school health education and related terms, suggests a policy statement for state boards of education on health education, discusses the reasons for school health education, describes the field's current status at federal and state levels, and notes recent problems and positive developments. A list of ten content areas recommended by the task force is added, as are the names and addresses of a number of public and private resource agencies. (RW)
