Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The oversight hearing documented in this report was convened to examine the expenditure of $26,750 to produce and televise an appearance by the President of the United States, George Bush, at Alice Deal Junior High School in Washington, District of Columbia, on October 1, 1991. In his opening address, Chairman of the House Committee on Education and Labor William D. Ford argued that the use of Department of Education funds resulted in the potential politicizing of the Department of Education and endangered the working relationship between previous presidential administrations and the Department of Education and the Committee. In addition to the opening statements, the report contains prepared statements, letters, and supplemental materials that were entered into the record by Lamar Alexander, U.S. Secretary of Education; John A. Boehner, Representative from the State of Ohio; and William D. Ford, Representative from the State of Michigan. Also included in the report is the transcript of a detailed question and answer session between Secretary of Education Alexander and several of the Committee members. (DB)
