Three recent pieces of federal legislation—the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, and the National Defense Education Act Amendments of 1964—have a direct bearing on the manner in which the social worker functions in the public school. Two extend the functioning of the worker in terms of providing additional responsibilities and funds for expanding the service, and the third restricts the worker's functioning by providing additional personnel to assume some of the functions now performed. The author examines the effects of each of these three laws, concluding that the end result is positive.
