Federal Aid Arises

March 1949
Education Digest;Mar1949, Vol. 14 Issue 7, p54
The article reports that the legislative bill dealing with education in the United States which is expected to pass is S.246, the federal aid to education measure. Its text is the same as passed by the Senate last year and its sponsors do not want to change a word of it for fear that any change might upset the delicately-balanced set of conditions which they believe will bring about its passage in 1949. However, Senator McMahon wants it amended and $25 million added so that non-public-school children will be permitted to share in health and transportation services paid for by the federal government.
