Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on 42 federal teacher training programs, focusing on the: (1) total number of federally funded teacher training programs; (2) budget obligations for teacher training programs; (3) number of teachers trained by these programs; and (4) differences in services across these programs.

GAO found that: (1) in fiscal year (FY) 1993, the federal government funded at least 86 teacher training programs in nine federal agencies and departments; (2) 42 programs obligated $280 million for teacher training activities for over one million teachers in FY 1993; (3) the 42 programs funded services such as conferences, teacher salaries, travel, and materials; (4) while services were similar for many teacher training programs, target groups differed; and (5) the purposes of the teacher training programs and the mix of services provided to teachers varied widely.
