Transcript ■ ■ Federal Aid to Education America is built upon the faith of the American people in education. Our children are the nation's hope, the nation's future. Should the federal government he responsible for guaranteeing equal and adequate educational opportunities for all? Classroom and teacher shortages spur some forces to urge immediate and substantial federal action in the field of education. Others spurn federal aid saying ileal subsidies bring control and that the federal government is already in the educational field to a dangerous extent. Dan Smoot presents the pros and eons on this vital issue. DO von approve of federal aid to education? We presently have two important laws providing assistance to local school districts in areas where federal activities have resulted in an increase in school enrollments and a decrease in local taxation because of federally-purchased property. Public Law 815 provides for school construction in such areas; Public Law 874 provides for assistance in school operation and maintenance.1 And there are, of course, many other types of federal assistance to local educational facilities. According to the Library of Congress, there may be as many as 275 separate and distinct federal activities in the field of education. The 1954 federal budget included over a billion dollars in various aid-to-education programs. Despite all these specific measures, however, no over-all, general, and inclusive program for federal aid to education has ever been authorized by Congress despite continuous efforts on the part of those who think we should have such a program. In the last session of —Wide World Pholo Mrs. Oveta Culp Hobby the 83rd Congress alone, twenty-one bills to provide federal aid to education failed to get approval.-' Secretary Oveta Culp Hobby, of the Department of Health, Education, Welfare, asked that action be del"! until a report could be made by ' White Mouse conference schedule*!
