Statement Made to the United States Senate Select Committee on Equal Educational Opportunity, July 15, 1971.
Wheeler, Robert R.
Using the successful reading program of Kansas City, Missouri, as a basis for discussion, the author makes suggestions for future federal legislation and for administration of federally funded educational programs. The success of the Kansas City program is examined, and specific improvements are suggested. Recommendations for future Title I programs include that (1) future legislation should require administrative entities at the school district level, (2) instructional objectives should be specified and delimited, (3) federal funds should be appropriated to specific instructional programs, (4) eligibility for such programs should be broadened, (5) programs should be tailored to the local communities, (6) programs other than Title I programs should be considered supplementary to Title I programs, (7) preservice teacher training specifically geared to inner-city programs should be expanded and improved, (8) early childhood education programs should be expanded, (9) community involvement should be expanded, and (10) programs to prepare schools for racial integration should be instituted.
