amendment of the House, with an amendment which is a substitute for both the Senate bill and the House amendment.
In most respects the substitute agreed upon in conference is like the House amendment. The differences between the House amendment and the substitute are noted in the following outline, except for incidental changes made necessary by reason of agreements reached by the conferees and minor and clarifying changes. Extension of National Defense Education Act.-The Senate bill extended the programs provided for in the National Defense Education Act of 1958 (hereinafter called the act) for 3 additional years beyond its present expiration date of June 30, 1965. The House amendment extended the act for only 2 additional years. The substitute agreed upon in conference extends the act for 3 additional years.
Amendments of part A of title V.-The Senate bill authorized the appropriations of $25,000,000 for the fiscal year 1965, $25,500,000 for the fiscal year 1966 $32,500,000 for the fiscal year 1967, and $37,500,000 for the fiscal year 1968 for carrying out part A of title V (relating to grants for State programs of guidance, counseling, and testing).
The House amendment authorized the appropriation of $23,500,000 for the fiscal year 1965 and the fiscal year 1966, and $28,500,000 for the fiscal year 1967 for this purpose.
The conference substitute authorizes the appropriation of $24,000,000 for the fiscal year 1965, $24,500,000 for the fiscal year 1966, and $30,000,000 for the fiscal years 1967 and 1968.
The Senate bill altered the present law to extend Federal assistance for State testing and guidance and counseling programs to all grades of elementary and secondary schools and to junior colleges and technical institutes. The present act allows Federal assistance only for testing and for guidance and counseling in the seventh and succeeding grades in elementary and secondary schools. The only change in the existing law made by the House amendment was to permit Federal assistance for guidance and counseling in all grades of elementary and secondary schools. The conference substitute follows the Senate bill.
The Senate bill also contained a provision, which was not in the House amendment, broadening the type of counseling and guidance which can be assisted to include advising students in their decisions as to the type of educational program they should pursue, the vocation they should train for and enter, and the job opportunities in the various fields. The conference substitute includes this provision.
Amendments of part B of title V.-The Senate bill made several changes in part B of title V of the act which relates to counseling and guidance training institutes. The House amendment contained provisions for guidance and counseling institutes which were, with one exception, the same in substance as those contained in the Senate bill. However, the House provisions were included in a new title XI which grouped all types of institutes in one place. The exception is that under the Senate bill the institutes would be for individuals who are engaged, or are teachers preparing to engage in counseling and guidance of students in elementary or secondary schools or in institutions of higher education, including junior colleges and technical institutes. In contrast, the House amendment provided that the institutes would be for individuals who are engaged, or are preparing to engage in elementary or secondary schools as counseling and guidance personnel.
The conference substitute adopts the provisions of the Senate bill, except that where the Senate bill authorized the appropriation of $10,000,000 for each fiscal year, the substitute authorizes the appropriation of $7,250,000.
New title XI.-The House amendment added a new title to the act which authorized the Commissioner to arrange with institutions of higher education for carrying out institutes for advanced study for persons in a number of specified fields. These fields included the two fields covered by existing law-that is, guidance and counseling and modern foreign language (including English when taught to persons for whom English is a second language). It then adds provisions for institutes for reading, and for teachers of disadvantaged youth in connection with specified types of schools, and librarians (and supervisors) in elementary or secondary schools. Since the guidance and counseling and modern foreign language institutes would be taken care of in his title, the House bill repealed part B of title V and part B of title VI.
The Senate amendment did not create a new title. Instead it provided for the continuation of the guidance and counseling institutes under title V, and broadened the permissible types of institutes in title VI. The new types of institutes were for school librarians and educational media specialists and for persons who engaged in or are preparing to engage in the teaching, or supervising or training of teachers, of history, civics, geography, English, or remedial reading.
The conference substitute, as has been described, retains the guidance and counseling institutes in part B of title V. The remainder of the institutes are authorized in the new title XI. The new title retains all the categories of institutes provided in the House amendment. In addition it includes educational media specialists and the categories of history, English, and geography from the Senate bill. In agreeing to the inclusion of geography, it is the understanding of the managers on the part of the House, that that "geography" does not include the field of study known as geopolitics.
