TO AUTHORIZE FUNDS FOR ASSISTANCE TO LOCAL

EDUCATIONAL AGENCIES FOR THE EDUCATION OF CAMBODIAN AND VIETNAMESE REFUGEES, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1975

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON ELEMENTARY, SECONDARY, AND

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION OF
THE COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION AND LABOR,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 9:30 o'clock a.m., in room 2257, the Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Carl D. Perkins (chairman), presiding.

Members present: Representatives Perkins, Ford, Miller, Mottl, Quie, Bell, and Goodling.

Staff members present: John F. Jennings, counsel for the majority, and Yvonne Franklin, minority legislative associate.

Chairman PERKINS. A quorum is present and we will begin. The Subcommittee on Elementary, Secondary and Vocational Education, is conducting a hearing today on H.R. 7897, and related bills. These bills provide temporary assistance to local educational agencies for the purpose of educating Cambodian and Vietnamese refugee children and adults.

Within the past year there has been an immigration into the country of over 125,000 refugees from Southeast Asia. It is estimated that nearly half of these refugees are children under the age of 18.

Congress and the administration recognized the problems involved in settling these refugees through enactment of the Indochina Migration and Refugee Assistance Act of 1975. Under the authority of that act, approximately $405 million has been appropriated for the purpose of assisting in the resettling of those refugees.

Of this amount, $5 million has been made available to the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare for adult education programs, and approximately $15 million has been made available to local school districts to educate refugee children. Payments for these children are limited to $300 a child or, if a school district has 100 such students or such students equal at least 1% of its total enrollment, then payments are $600 a child.

The bills before us today, and the Senate-passed bill, S. 2145, propose a temporary program to pay school districts for the full basic costs of educating these children. They also authorize payments for supplemental educational services for these children. Several of these bills
