Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This publication begins with a message from the President of the United States, George Bush, transmitting to the Congress the "Lifelong Learning Act of 1992." A draft of the proposed legislation to amend the Higher Education Act of 1965 follows. Its key provisions, intended to encourage lifelong learning, are as follows: (1) to extend eligibility for Pell Grants and the three Guaranteed Student Loan programs to students studying less than half time; (2) to authorize the Student Loan Marketing Association to originate loans under a Lifelong Learning Line of Credit for education and job training to be repaid based on the borrower's ability to pay; and (3) to explore the use of high-quality education and training programs offered by nonschool based providers. A section-by-section analysis is also provided of this act that would provide all citizens the flexibility needed to pursue postsecondary education and improve their employment skills, while balancing their current commitments to jobs and families.
