An Interim Accounting.
Marland, S. P., Jr.
The new approach to educational renewal in the Office of Education involves the key element of concentration. Instead of giving piecemeal grants, all discretionary funds within OE have been concentrated in one division in order to assist a limited number of school systems to install totally new programs involving all aspects of the school. Each site will be funded for a 5-year period, after which it should be able to continue with combined state and local assistance. Each site will have about 10 schools, all of them in areas where there are large concentrations of disadvantaged children. A locally-developed needs assessment will be the basis for the package of programs funded by OE. Proposals must conform to three criteria: 1) evidence of state and local commitment, 2) comprehensiveness, 3) program objectives stated in precise measurable terms. Initially the renewal sites will probably be identified by the states with final selection by OE. The state department will also house at least half the total number of "educational renewal extension agents." The agents would tie practitioners to federal, state, and local researchers. Another new program being planned at OE is called Common Core of Data for the 70's. Eventually it will provide an integrated system of educational statistics for federal, state, local, and institutional planning and management. (RT)
