This article presents information on the Education of the Handicapped Act, which expires on June 30, 1973. Technically all programs authorized by this law and administered by the Bureau of Education for the Handicapped cease at that time. This includes Title IV-Part B funds to the states, the early childhood programs, training programs for teachers of handicapped children, research and demonstration programs for the handicapped and the Part G learning disabilities program. The Part G learning disabilities program is now funding projects in 40 states and the Leadership Training Institute in Learning Disabilities at the University of Arizona. The major issues before the Congress are whether to extend the Education of the Handicapped Act, whether to include in that extension, the Part B formula money to the states or put that in a special revenue sharing plan.
