Annual Evaluation Report on Education Programs, FY 1971.
Office of Program Planning and Evaluation (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
A comprehensive report on the approximately 100 Office of Education programs is provided in this evaluation of the programs for FY 1971. The status of the evaluation function itself is briefly discussed; a general overview is made of the effectiveness of the Office of Education programs; and short evaluation reports are provided for each of the educational programs and legislative titles. These reports appear under the following categories of programs: Elementary and Secondary Education, Education for the Handicapped, Vocational and Adult Education, Higher Education, Education Professions Development, Libraries and Educational Technology, Educational Research and Development, Educational Dissemination, and National Priority Programs. Each program evaluation report is presented in the same format, as follows: Program Name, Legislation, Expiration Date, Funding History, Program Purpose and Operation, Program Effectiveness, Ongoing and Planned Evaluation Studies, and Sources of Evaluation Data. The three principal thrusts of the Office of Education programs are seen as being (1) equalizing educational opportunity, (2) improving the quality and relevance of American education, and (3) providing limited general support to selected educational functions and activities.
