This document, a transcript of a series of Congressional hearings, considers the reauthorization of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act and the Education of the Handicapped Act. The hearings were designed to assess the effectiveness of existing programs and to seek ways to ensure their continued success in the future. Testimony and prepared reports were given by 85 witnesses, support personnel, and organizations. The witnesses represented federal, state, and local governmental agencies and organizations that serve handicapped and displaced workers, including those serving minority groups such as American Indians.
