Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 (Public Law 89-10) as amended, provides direct Federal assistance for the acquisition of school library resources, textbooks, and other instructional materials for the use of children and teachers in public and private elementary and secondary schools. Its purpose is to improve learning and teaching by making available high quality instructional materials to pupils and their teachers. This report is a synthesis of the ESEA title II fiscal year 1972 narrative reports submitted by each state department of education to the U.S. Office of Education. The examples from states cited to illustrate the various topics covered by the report are arranged by geographic region. The topics are: State management of ESEA Title II Program; Program development; Title II's commitment to the Right to Read program; Services to private school children and teachers; Evaluation and dissemination; and, Needs. The report has evidence that materials made available under title II contributed to a great extent to innovations in instruction and to flexibility in meeting the needs of children and teachers in the process of education.
