Trends in Management of ESEA Title I: A Perspective from Compliance Reviews.
Winslow, Harold R., Jr.; And Others
The findings of audits and Office of Education program reviews from Title I programs in 20 States were analyzed for the years 1965-1976. The purposes of this study were (1) to determine the extent to which problems in State and local management of Title I have changed since 1965, and (2) to highlight current management problems which need the attention of local officials. This report describes the background of Title I evaluations, the design of the study undertaken, and findings of the study in regard to: (1) student and attendance area eligibility and targeting (including private school populations); (2) program development; (3) funds restrictions to ensure the use of Title I monies for supplemental and categorical services; and (4) State educational agency management functions. Findings are summarized for each of the four areas. Persisting problems in management are identified in the following categories: student selection, private schools, parent involvement, comparability, no-supplanting and general aid, State education agency application review and approval, and State education agency monitoring and auditing.
