School Construction Aid

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 stimulate lots of discussion seeks grants-in-aid for school construction. It is known as S.287 and its sponsor is Senator Neely. Although the White House would rather study the question of school construction, school administrators are exerting pressure on their Congressmen for immediate action. Some observers estimate that pressure for school building aid is greater than that for general aid. Nevertheless, even the backers of the school construction bill say that general federal aid to education has priority over school construction.
