The material found on the following pages was collated at the request of the Education Subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare in order that the subcommittee might have available in convenient form information useful to it in discharging both its legislative function and its legislative oversight function.
It is my hope that the Notes and Working Papers series, of which the present publication is the fifth to be issued, can also be found useful by the educational community.
On behalf of my subcommittee I wish to express to the Commissioner of Education our appreciation of the cooperation he has given us in this project. Our thanks also go to Dr. Nolan Estes, Associate Commissioner of the Bureau of Elementary and Secondary Education, to Dr. Ralph Becker of the Division of Plans and Supplementary Centers to Dr. Donald D. Twiford, Chief of Guidance and Personnel Services Branch, and to those who worked with them in the preparation of the study.
Chairman, Education Subcommittee.
