An expenditure of ten billion dollars on new schools would merely permit us to catch up with our present needs. Elementary school enrollment has climbed past the 2.3 million mark. By 1965, the figure for elementary and secondary schools is expected to hit 44 million.4 Why, then, in the face of these government statistics, is there any opposition to federal aid to education? One principal argument made by the die- hards is that the local communities and states will take care of the situation themselves. They overlook the fact that many local communities which have in the past borne the entire financial responsibility of education can no longer do so, even when they tax themselves to the limit. The largest number of children in proportion to population is in the areas with the least proportion of wealth.
