ED Rules Vetoed

October 1982
Education Digest;Oct1982, Vol. 48 Issue 2, p69
The article presents information related to the recent educational developments in the U.S. While school districts were starting to spend their block grant money, Congress was telling the Department of Education (ED) that it didn't like the job ED did with the regulations for the program. The biggest objection was ED's contention that the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA) does not apply. The GEPA covers general administration for all federal education programs and includes the right of Congress to review and approve all regulations. Other ED rules haven't fared any better. Congress also told the ED to shelve its plans to change rules for education of the handicapped. Congress is likely to win on this issue. House and Senate staffers say that both sides resent the ED's effort to lock Congress out of the rule making. ED can reissue the rules stating that the GEPA applies or it can ignore the congressional disapproval. Some of the harshest criticism came over the proposed weakening of provisions relating to educating handicapped children in the least restrictive environment possible.
