This document contains the components of the National Educational Opportunities Act of 1975. Among the purposes of this Act are the provision for a viable mechanism for States and their local educational systems to implement the national policy on equal educational opportunity, the improvement of results achieved by elementary and secondary education throughout the nation, the facilitation of the reduction in the concentration of children from minority groups and low-income families in certain schools, including prevention of resegregation after desegregation has been achieved, and the reduction and elimination of any educational ill-effects resulting from the concentration of children from minority groups and low-income families in schools where such concentrations are found to exist. Title II provides the guidelines to be followed by State equal educational opportunities plans, and Title III contains such items as the general provisions and definitions for terms such as minority students, low-income families, local educational agencies, desegregation, and basic supportive services.
