RFK: Obviously I am completely in accord with the objectives of
the bill. All I wonder is whether we couldn't give further protections to the
child by certain requirements. Now what I ask is whether it would be possible to
have some kind of testing system at the end of a year or 2 years in which we
would see whether the money that had been invested in the school district of New
York City, or Denver, Colorado, or Jackson, Mississippi or whatever it might be
was coming up with a plan and program that made it worthwhile, and whether the
child, in fact, was gaining from the investment of these funds.
