S SUMMARY REPORT ON DRIVER EDUCATION IN PUBLIC AND NON-PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS

The base period for this summary report on driver education covers a span of eight years and underscores a period of unprecedented growth under the Federal Highway Safety Assistance Act of 1966. The essential ingredients of this expansion and impact on strengthening the instructional process, currently and for the years ahead, are: (1) school district effectiveness; (2) school coverage; and (3) student volume approaching 100 percent of eligible students in many schools. It is believed that schools will strive to achieve this goal without the need for further state requirements. Facilitating factors at the state government agency level include interdepartmental sharing of support, common concerns, and coordination. Reinforcing the state efforts at the local level are such significant advances as improved school organization and curricula; improved cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness ratios; continued cooperative working relationship between school and community; and particularly, the increased services and support of local automobile dealers in sharing the costs of driver education.
