CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING FEDERAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS.
LINDMAN, ERICK L.
CRITERIA ARE SUGGESTED FOR REVIEWING THE PURPOSE, METHOD, AND DESIGN OF EXISTING AND PROPOSED FEDERAL GRANT PROGRAMS FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. EVALUATION OF EXISTING FEDERAL EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS IS NECESSITATED BY THEIR INCREASINGLY COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP WITH STATE AND LOCAL PROGRAMS. OF PRIMARY CONCERN ARE THE PURPOSE OF FEDERAL EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ADMINISTRATIVE RELATIONS FOR SOUND FEDERAL-STATE-LOCAL RELATIONSHIPS, AND THE COMBINED EFFECT OF ALL FEDERAL PROGRAMS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADEQUATE PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN ALL STATES. GOALS INCLUDE PROVISION OF SPECIAL PURPOSE GRANTS FOR EDUCATING DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN, COMPENSATION FOR DEFICIENCIES IN THE SCHOOL TAX BASE RESULTING FROM THE TAX-EXEMPT STATUS OF FEDERAL PROPERTY, AND FINANCING OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS FOR EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT FEDERAL PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION SHOULD BE COORDINATED WITH STATE AND LOCAL PROGRAMS THROUGH STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION. AS FEDERAL CATEGORICAL AID BECOME OPERATIVE, PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE STATE TO ADJUST ITS GRANT PROGRAM TO LOCAL SCHOOL SYSTEMS IN ORDER TO REALIZE OPTIMUM ALLOCATION OF TOTAL FUNDING. DISCRETIONARY ALLOCATION OF FEDERAL PROGRAM FUNDS SHOULD BE MINIMIZED BY THE APPLICATION OF OBJECTIVE FORMULAS. ONLY THROUGH A TAX-SHARING PLAN OR SOME OTHER FORM OF FEDERAL SUPPORT WILL ADEQUATE PUBLIC SCHOOL PROGRAMS BE DEVELOPED IN ALL STATES. (JK)
