Broader Grants-in-Aid

March 1949
Education Digest;Mar1949, Vol. 14 Issue 7, p56
The article reports that a Hoover Commission task force, which studied federal-state relations in the United States, has declared that the grants-in-aid system is over-fragmentized. There should be fewer grants for broader purposes. Instead of separate grants for school lunch, vocational education, land-grant colleges, and apprenticeship training, each state should receive a single grant for education. The state would then be left free to decide which of the areas in education needed strengthening.
