Student Advisory Committee Handbook.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
In 1972, the President signed into law the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) which was designed to provide financial assistance to local school districts and non-profit groups in the implementation of new programs to aid minority school children in overcoming educational disadvantages; to eliminate, prevent, or reduce minority group isolation; and to meet special needs as a result of the elimination of minority group segregation and discrimination. This handbook is addressed to students who are chosen to participate actively in discussing and overcoming the problems of school integration. It discusses selection of committee members, ideas on how it can best function, and suggestions for activities. Appendixes include background information on the new legislation, and the names and addresses of regional education staff members who may be contacted for assistance. (Author/HMV)
