Title I Outstanding Programs, FY 74-75 in Georgia's Schools.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Div. of Compensatory Education.
Most school systems in Georgia received some sort of assistance during fiscal years 1974 and 1975 from Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Since its passage in 1965, Title I has been the major federal funding source for education, providing a broad range of services. The aim of Title I is to serve culturally and economically deprived students. Georgia's FY 75 allocation for Title I provided more than $55 million to the State. Over 150,000 students benefited from the funds, with almost all school systems receiving some sort of assistance. With so many systems involved, it is stated that it is considered not practical to feature each program in this document. The 23 projects described in this report of FY 74-75 represent the range of instruction offered through Title I, and show how some projects labeled outstanding serve their students. Projects from FY 75 are shown first, followed by FY 74. All address the problem of how to give students the help they need to "catch up" in the basics--through reading, writing, math or kindergarten.
