A Report on the Third Year of Title I Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Statistical Report, Fiscal Year 1968.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The third annual statistical report on programs funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act, summarizes in facts and figures activities during fiscal year 1968. This statistical report, based on accounts by State school superintendents across the nation, describes the ethnic and racial characteristics of the participating children and presents data on dropouts and on students who continued their education. It describes in detail the staff involved in Title I programs--the regular teachers, the parents, the student volunteers--and the types of training they received. Expenditures are also reported with breakdowns according to instructional and service activities. Of a sample of 462 local education agencies, 458 responded to a questionnaire designed by the Office of Education. The data were then interpreted and refined to provide national estimates. The survey instrument from which these statistics are drawn was organized in three parts: (1) general information; (2) regular school term; activities taking place from fall to spring; and, (3) summer school program--activities taking place in the summer of 1968 only. The data is presented in tabular form, with detailed accompanying test, technical notes, and a transcript of the questionnaire. (Author/JM)
