It must be remembered that the ultimate function of education is to make man all that he is capable of being. To attain this, an education program must provide the finest leadership, emphasize excellence, profess and pursue the highest of values, and foster perceptual clarity and intellectual acumen in those it seeks to serve. It is all too evident that the expanding role of the federal government has eroded, rather than strengthened, these principles. And there is little reason to believe that the solution proferred by Congress for the deficiencies in mathematics and science teaching-more federal involvement--will move the nation's schools once again in the proper direction.
