I consider it a privilege to have served as Secretary of Health,
Education, and Welfare in your Administration which has done more
for the health, education and welfare of the American people than
any other Administration in history.

I am, therefore, particularly pleased to present you with a report
reviewing progress and problems in health, education, and welfare.
This report illustrates some of the remarkable accomplishments
achieved during your Administration. It describes some of the
challenges that remain. It focuses on the future and outlines
some goals and expectations for the year 1976--the two hundredth
anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

While the report clearly reveals the tremendous recent progress which
has been made, it also indicates that much more must be done. The
challenges that confront this country in health, education, and
welfare require continued and increased attention.

In a very real sense, the report concerns the oldest and fondest
dreams of this country--expanding individual opportunity, releasing
human potential, improving the quality of life. Parts of this
dream have been realized. We are challenged to continue pursuing
it until it is a reality for all Americans.
