听力原文： The problem of the homeless has become very serious in the United States. Almost in every community, you can find homeless people. An ironical case is: in November, 1993, a woman died on a street in Washington, D.C., the nation's capital, and she died at a bus-stop across the street from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
People become homeless for various reasons. Some may not be able to pay for the housing they used to have, because they have lest their job and cannot find another place they can afford. Others have mental disorders, or are addicted to drags or alcohol, and there are not enough centres to care for them.
As ways to help these people, the federal government and many communities have set up all kinds of projects. Some programs include permanent housing, training for jobs and treatment for people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol. Some communities have opened centers that offer services for as many as 700 people. The homeless can stay as long as they want.
People are making efforts to solve the problem. However, it will not be easy, because it is a personal and economic problem as well as a social problem.

听力原文： Generalizing about education in the United States involves some risk because education is spread around and standards vary from place to Place. Even more, diversity is the feature of American education.
Education is largely a public function in America but religious and private institutions do sponsor schools. These private schools, particularly in the primary and secondary field, are now enjoying a revival.
Most children in America begin school in a kindergarten class at age five. There follows eight years of primary education, then four years of high school. Education is compulsory until about age 16. The existence of large minorities, many with a primary language other than English, complicates the educational process. Many Americans do not believe that their school standards are high enough. The high rate of functional illiteracy gives evidence to this charge.
Higher education in America is widespread with about 1,800 post-secondary institutions. These include two-year community colleges, four-year undergraduate colleges and universities, and many schools which have extensive graduate programs. Some schools are privately funded, and more receive the majority of their funding from public sources. There is a great range of quality between higher educational institutions and some universities have outstanding academic records. These quality differences may be overemphasized for many unfamous schools have excellent programs. In the long run, the individual determines the education he gets.
