National Advisory Council on Equality of Educational Opportunity. Third Interim Report.
National Advisory Council on Equality of Educational Opportunity.
The Emergency School Aid Act was enacted to provide financial assistance for relieving particular problems associated with public school desegregation and minority group isolation. The act mandated the establishment of a 15-member National Advisory Council on Equality of Educational Opportunity (NACEEO) with at least half of the members representing minority groups. The council has four specific purposes: (1) to advise the Assistant Secretary with respect to the operation of the program authorized by the Act, including the preparation of regulations and development of criteria for the approval of applications; (2) to review the operation with respect to its effectiveness and with respect to the Assistant Secretary's conduct in the administration of the program; (3) to meet not less than four times in the period during which the program is authorized and submit, through the Secretary, to the Congress at least two interim reports; and, (4) not later than December 1, 1974, to sumbit to the Congress a final report. The present third interim report contains continuing major findings and recommendations of NACEEO, some of which are considered to reinforce earlier ones. The Report has three sub-divisions: (1) summary of recommendations; (2) detailed recommendations and findings; and (3) NACEEO activities and exhibits, including a summary of previously published recommendations in December 1973 and January 1975.
