Title I ESEA: A Review and a Forward Look, 1969; Fourth Annual Report.
National Advisory Council on the Education of Disadvantaged Children, Washington, DC.
The main focus of this ESEA Title I program review and forward look is on problem areas the National Advisory Council on the Education of Disadvantaged Children has identified since its first report in 1966, which the Council feels seems to deserve the early attention of a new Administration and Congress. Major recommendations are as follows: (1) Office of Education (OE) should make a special effort to disseminate examples of demonstrably successful compensatory education programs, such as the selection of 21 successful projects described in a special supplement in this report; (2) OE should designate a single visibly placed official to monitor all aspects of Title I participation by nonpublic school children; (3) OE should show state and local personnel the full range of possibilities in using Title I funds for health services; (4) ESEA Title I should be continued substantially as now written; (5) principle of concentrating funds where most needed should be adhered to; (6) the new Administration is urged to offer imaginative leadership in school desegregation and to refuse to back down on this commitment; and, (7) the Executive and Legislative branches should move quickly to close the gap between the Title I appropriation and the authorization of a sum of $2.7 billion. Appended are community case studies of nonpublic school children and Title I. (RJ)
