The Impact of Legal Aid Programs for the Poor on the Operation of Public School Districts in the United States.
Shannon, Thomas A.
The Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 established a community action program -- an all-out community attack against poverty. One goal of this program -- law reform -- has since been implemented by both traditional legal aid societies and newly-created agencies that select unusual cases for special treatment. Responses to inquiries made of over 80 legal aid society directors reflected interchanges with local public schools in nine areas: student discipline, Federal fund use by local public schools, school bus transportation, integration of pupils, district organization and management, tuition, application of the "one man, one vote" principle in school bond elections, State aid to local public schools, and educational activities concerning the law.
