March 1957
Education Digest;Mar1957, Vol. 22 Issue 7, p54
The article reports on U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's proposed educational budget for fiscal 1958. The proposal would allow the U.S. Office of Education to operate on a $7.5 million appropriation, an increase of $2.2 million over the 1957 operating funds. There is a possibility that the U.S. Congress will vote for an increase over the $5,270,000 on which the agency is currently operating. The proposed budget would earmark $2.3 million for 1958 to carry on the research projects. The proposal would also permit the USOE to increase its professional and junior professional staff.
