State and Territorial Education Agencies and E.S.E.A. V Section 503: Report of a National Survey.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
During the fiscal years 1966 to 1973 over $200 million was provided to State education agencies (SEAs) to improve their capabilities and services in certain areas specifically mentioned in Section 503, Title V, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Critics have charged that during this period State agencies were not responsive to the national priorities but rather allocated Section 503 resources to extend and carry out entrenched, traditional functions and activities independent of the mainstream of emerging educational needs. The fiscal year 1973 Federal budget proposals brought the most serious challenge to the SEA support program by recommending that Section 503 funds be eliminated. The purposes of this survey were to identify activities and programs funded by Section 503 allocations and to determine whether these activities and programs were consistent with the Congressional intent. Major findings of the survey are reported and relevant data, including a copy of the survey instrument, are included in an appendix. (Author/JF)
