Records Relating to Special Commission to Study... | State Archives Catalog

The Special Commission to Study the Entire Field of Education was authorized by the General Assembly and was sworn in by Governor John H. Chafee in 1965. The final report, named for the commission chairman, Representative Joseph A. Thibeault, was completed in 1968. The report was accompanied by numerous background studies which analyzed past trends and projected future ones for education at all levels. A major recommendation made by the commission called for the creation of a consolidated system of education under the leadership of a single board. In 1969, legislation establishing a single Board of Regents for Education was passed with an effective date of July 1, 1969.
