Title I Comparability: One Year Later.
Badger, Daniel; Browning, R. Stephen
The 1970 amendments to ESEA Title I were designed to ensure that Title I expenditures would actually be "extra" Federal resources for disadvantaged school children and went into effect on July 1, 1972. Two months following that date, the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law reported widespread violations of the comparability requirements among school districts receiving Title I funds. The present report, one year after enforcement of the Act, studies the extent of compliance with the comparability regulations of the 1970 amendments among a cross-section of the nation's public school districts. The report explains in some detail the concept and mechanics of the comparability requirements, statistical findings are presented, and a detailed comparison is made between the October 1971 comparability regulations and the new regulations issued by the Office of Education in June 1973. Finally, a brief insight into the future of comparability compliance and enforcement efforts is presented. [The tables in Appendix A are marginally legible.] (Author/RJ)
