A Report on the ESEA Title III Program in Maryland, 1965-1975.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Compensatory, Urban, and Supplementary Programs.
This document reviews the impact of ESEA Title III programs on education in Maryland. Priority areas of concern established by the State Board of Education are identified as human relations, early childhood education, reading, improved teacher preparation and teacher certification, and career education. Nine programs are described under state plan projects said to meet these critical educational needs. A section on currently operating projects focuses on areas of the State Board of Education priorities and federally mandated areas. It categorizes 24 projects among human relations, early childhood education, and reading. While complete evaluation data is not available for new projects, a sense of direction is said to be indicated for those in operation for two years. One additional program in early childhood education, said to have been funded for representing an area of national concern, is also described. The biggest impact of Title III on Maryland is held to consist in the advancement of early childhood education and education for the handicapped. Projects are summarized in chart form and appear in the appendix. The appendix also includes information on state educational needs considered critical and on project funding in priority areas. (AM)
