Parental Involvement in Title I ESEA.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, passed in 1965 to improve the educational opportunities of educationally deprived children, is the largest Federal aid to education program. One of the things they hoped for was the involvement of parents and other citizens in Title I projects. This manual was written as a guide for local and State officials charged with implementing the provisions of Title I. It describes the rationale behind the parental involvement requirements, the history of parental involvement in Title I, and the logistics of starting a parent council. The manual was not designed primarily as a guide for parent council members, although they may find information it contains helpful in examining their own functions and it is suggested that they should be provided with copies. Nor is the manual intended to reflect parental involvement in the special components of Title I--the migrant education program and the program for the neglected or delinquent. (Author)
