Staff Report and Fiscal Year 1984 Budget Analysis of Programs under the Jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education. Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives. Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education, Ninety-Eighth Congress, First Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
Programs within the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education are reviewed, and the impact of the fiscal year 1984 budget recommendations is analyzed. Conclusions include the following: the Administration's student aid recommendations represent major policy recommendations rather than budgetary changes; the proposed elimination of funding for most of the discretionary programs, including a major reduction in funding for the TRIO programs, are unwise and ill-timed; the proposed elimination of funding for college and public libraries would substantially erode the country's effort to encourage academic pursuit and expand the availability of knowledge; and the funding recommendations for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Institute for Museum Services, are unacceptable. Specific topics include: accreditation of postsecondary institutions, College Assistance Migrant Program and Higher Education Equivalency Program, cooperative education, the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education, graduate education, international education and foreign language, the Fulbright-Hays Act, institutional aid, and various student aid programs.
