Excerpt from Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Education, Arts and Humanities of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources, United States Senate, One Hundred Third Congress; First Session on Examination and Various Organizations on the Reauthorization of the Element The subcommittee met, pursuant to tice, at 8:10 a.m. in the Pavilion Auditorium, Pavilion Office Building, Montpelier, VT, Senator James M. Jeffords presiding. Present: Senator Jeffords. Opening Statement of Senator Jeffords Senator Jeffords. If you would take your seats, we will get started. I want to thank you all for coming. This is a hearing of the Subcommittee on Education, Arts and Humanities of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources, U.S. Senate. I am the ranking Republican on this committee. This was a position that was held by Senator Stafford for many years, although he had the fortune of also being chairman of the subcommittee for a period of time during the early 1980's. The specific material which we will be discussing today is the Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act which originally started in 1965. I am looking forward to hearing the testimony today from our distinguished panelists, in fact, from all Vermonters who have recommendations for the reauthorization of this important educational act. This is certainly a bill that affects us all as parents, educators and concerned citizens. I am hoping to go home tonight with some fresh ideas about how the Federal Governments role in elementary and secondary education can be improved. As you kw, I have been working with these programs both in the House and in the Senate for the past 15 years, and while I believe that we have been largely successful in meeting the goals, I do believe there is always room for improvement and I expect there certainly is w as we look toward the future. As I am sure you kw, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act represents the Federal Government's largest contribution to the education of our Nation's young people. With a total nationwide funding level in 1993 of $8.6 billion, Federal spending for these 46 programs makes up nearly 6 percent of all public expenditures in the United States.
