Educating the Disadvantaged Child: Where We Stand. The 1972 Annual Report to the President and the Congress.
National Advisory Council on the Education of Disadvantaged Children, Washington, DC.
This report, the eighth annual report of the National Advisory Council on the Education of Disadvantaged Children (NACEDC), is presented as a commentary on the previous year's administration of the programs for disadvantaged children, with recommendations for the future. NACEDC notes that 1.5 million fewer disadvantaged children are now being served due to the concentration guideline directing spending on fewer for maximum impact; at the same time it is known that the number of children living in school attendance areas with high concentrations of children from low income families is about 20 million--suggesting that about two-thirds needing Title I services are not receiving them. Recommendations in the report relate to State funds for compensatory education, Title I audits and enforcement, delivery of services, legislative proposals for State Advisory Council for Title I, parent involvement, desegregation, nonpublic school children, follow through programs proposed by the Division of Compensatory Education, migrant programs, neglected and delinquent children in State institutions, the Right to Read Program, and teacher training. In light of appeals by private school administrators and practitioners, a special section of the report is devoted to the special needs of private schools serving disadvantaged children. (RJ)
