Final Report: Title I Task Force on School Support Services.
Inner City Fund, Washington, DC.
This final report of the Title I Task Force on School Support Services shows that poor children in America suffer disproportionately from health and nutrition problems. The report explains why ESEA should be used to reduce these problems in Title I schools. The report also examines current health and nutrition support service programs in Title I schools. The remainder and majority of the report discusses what a Title I school health and nutrition program should include and ways in which the Office of Education can persuade and influence local school districts to initiate such programs in more efficient ways. Suggestions include the following: the development of guidance to help Title I personnel design support service programs and secure the benefits of existing government resources; the development and distribution which will describe ways OEO centers could work with schools; the establishment of a health advisory committee; the issuing of a booklet describing ways nutrition education for elementary children can be taught around the school lunch program.
