NDEA III-A and ESEA II Survey Results.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Educational Media.
A survey was conducted to determine the nation's needs for future funding under both Title III-A of the National Defense Education Act (NDEA III-A) and Title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA II). The North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction surveyed state officials responsible in the 50 states, five territories, the District of Columbia and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Fifty-seven NDEA III-A questionnaires were sent and 93% were returned; 95% of the ESEA II questionnaires were returned. The NDEA III-A survey found: (1) that 50 of 52 respondents have local funds available to match federal allocations for 1974, and (2) that advanced funding had a "great" effect on program effectiveness. The ESEA II survey determined that 50 out of 54 respondents believed 1974 funding was inadequate to meet state-wide needs and estimated the amount of additional funds that could have been effectively used. Both surveys estimate the total amount of federal funds that could be matched by states in 1975, 1976, and 1977. Also, both agree that federal funding should be increased. (WCM)
