Questions and Answers: Programs for Educationally Deprived Children Under ESEA Title I, 1971.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the largest Federal aid-to-education program, was passed in 1965 to provide financial assistance to local school districts in planning and operating special programs for educationally deprived children. It is a supplementary program, designed to upgrade the educational opportunities of children from disadvantaged backgrounds, and not a general aid program. This booklet was prepared to answer some of the questions which are frequently asked about Title I programs operated by local education agencies. It does not attempt to deal with migrant education, or projects in institutions serving neglected, delinquent, or handicapped children. The contents are organized in seven parts: history of ESEA Title I eligibility of local education agencies; eligibility of children; eligibility of projects; applications for funds; allocation of funds; and records and reports. For more detailed information about Title I activities in a specific locale, interested persons should contact their State or Local education agencies. (Author/JM)
