The Nonpublic Schools and ESEA Title III. A Special Report.
George Washington Univ., Washington, DC. National Advisory Council on Supplementary Centers and Services.
This report focuses on one of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) programs--Title III, the program for educational innovation. As shown by studies and reports dealing with the amount of involvement and participation of nonpublic school children in Title III programs, the general picture of past performance is bleak. There are notable exceptions, but nonpublic schools generally have not been involved as equitable and effective participants in Title III programs. One reason for this may be that many of the problems took a long time to surface. Title III has been one of the lesser known of the ESEA programs, particularly at the local level. It has only been within the past several years that strong voices have been raised about the inequitable treatment under Title III for children attending nonpublic schools. The bulk of this report presents details on the amount of participation and involvement that have been reported in various studies, recommendations for improvement, the kinds of arrangements and programs that are working, happenings at the federal and state level that relate to nonpublic school participation, a profile of one state, and the regulations on participation as contained in Title IV of ESEA.
