HOW NEW MEXICO SCHOOLS ARE USING FEDERAL FUNDS TO MEET LOCAL NEEDS.
FIELDING, BYRON
TITLE I MONIES UNDER THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT WERE AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR OF 1965-66. IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE FUNDS FOR WHICH A LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT WAS ELIGIBLE UNDER THIS LAW, EACH DISTRICT HAS TO SUBMIT A PROJECT APPLICATION THAT WOULD MEET THE SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF ITS EDUCATIONALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN. AS A RESULT OF PLANNING AND ORGANIZATION, 89 OF THE 90 LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THE STATE OF NEW MEXICO IMPLEMENTED ONE OR MORE NEW PROGRAMS WHICH WERE SUPPORTED ENTIRELY BY TITLE I FUNDS. BECAUSE OF NEW MEXICO'S INDIAN, SPANISH, AND ANGLO CULTURES, TITLE I PROJECTS WERE TAILORED TO MEET A VARIETY OF LOCAL NEEDS. NEARLY EVERY SCHOOL DISTRICT IN NEW MEXICO USED SOME TITLE I MONEY FOR DEVELOPMENT OF READING SKILLS. SOME OF THE OTHER PROGRAMS DURING THE FIRST YEAR WERE IN THE AREAS OF MUSIC, VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, FOREIGN LANGUAGE, TRANSPORTATION, HEALTH SERVICE, PRESCHOOL EDUCATION, AND SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION. THIS ARTICLE APPEARS IN "NEA JOURNAL," VOL. 55, NO. 6, SEPTEMBER 1966, PP. 23-26. (ES)
