In Part I the focus is on the special educational needs of and Federal programs of assistance to children in the United States who are disadvantaged by social, economic, or educational conditions in their homes and communities and whose subsequent growth and development would be severely handicapped without appropriate remedial or compensatory programs. This material has been adapted from the annual report made by U.S. Commissioner of Education, S. P. Marland, Jr., to the Congress in March, 1971. Part II is a brief background summary of the organization and structure of education in the United States. Part III contains statistics on American education compiled by the Office of Education National Center for Educational Statistics. The material covers the 1969-70 school year, the most recent full year for which figures were available at the time this report went to press. The tables also contain data from earlier years to indicate trends or comparisons. [Parts of page 17 of this document are not clearly legible.] (Author/JM)
