A number of recommendations regarding federal educational legislation are made in this 1982 edition of a New York State publication that discusses key statutory, budget, and regulatory issues of concern to the state. The document begins with a general examination of the federal role in education and then suggests guidelines for federal education programs. It next points out the implications of regional economic and demographic trends for the allocation of federal resources and analyzes federal programs under the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, and the Vocational Education Act of 1963. The authors consider the problems of youth employment and review the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act. The needs of state library and cultural services, foreign language and international studies, and mathematics and science programs are described. Changes in postsecondary school admissions testing are noted. Finally, the document looks at problems in financial assistance for postsecondary students and discusses the relationship between educational institutions and national defense programs. Overall recommendations include continuation of the federal role in education, revisions in federal programs and manpower policies, aid to postsecondary students, and changes in federal allocation formulas.
