Title I: Expanding Educational Growth. Annual Report to the President and the Congress/1974.
National Advisory Council on the Education of Disadvantaged Children, Washington, DC.
The authorization for the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, Title I expired on June 30, 1974. In fulfilling its statutory obligation, the National Advisory Council on the Education of Disadvantaged Children focused its activities in 1973-74 on the review of programs and practices of those involved in the education of disadvantaged children in order to give knowledgeable recommendations affecting administrative and programmatic practices. Moreover, the experience gained in these reviews stimulated the development of the minimum recommendations which the council worked to incorporate in current legislative initiatives. The council explored and discussed these mandates at meetings with parents, community leaders, teachers and administrators at all levels. In 1973, the council brought all the State Title I coordinators together for the first time. The success of this meeting led to two subsequent meetings in 1974. The council also met with migrant coordinators, chief State school officers and representatives of school boards, administrators, teachers, and parents. In addition to exploring and discussing the legislative mandates, issues of importance relating to the following topics were addressed by the council after meeting with the individual groups: Title I formula, self-concept, staff development, school finance, bilingual programs focus, and technical assistance.
