What Do We Know About Teaching and Learning in Urban Schools? Volume 1: Compensatory Education: A Congressional Perspective.
Cross, Christopher T.
This document details the changes that have occurred in the 95th Congress with respect to compensatory education and explores the implications of those changes with respect to Federal policy for compensatory education programs. The 93rd Congressional hearings on Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act are reviewed. Also described are a study conducted by the National Institute of Education on compensatory education and another study administered by the Office of Education designed to determine the socioeconomic status of those receiving Title I services. The studies' findings, which highlighted problems in the distribution of services and funds, are summarized, and the effects that such data have had on the legislation passed by the 95th Congress, including major amendments to Title I, are then described. Appended to the document are Part B of the Educational Amendments of 1974, dealing with educational studies and surveys, and an overview of H.R. 10891, a bill written to reorganize and amend Title I.
