GAO presented its Education and Employment issue area plan for fiscal years 1997 through 1999.

GAO plans to assess: (1) using federal resources to support and encourage state and local efforts to provide education programs that will enable all youths to obtain skilled jobs and become informed citizens; (2) ensuring that eligible students have access to quality higher education while encouraging cost-containment for education programs and protection of federal education funds from fraud and abuse; (3) helping individuals acquire the skills needed to become productively employed and helping employers locate qualified job candidates; and (4) improving protection for workers while reducing the burden for employers in complying with workplace regulations.
