Summary of Impact of Title VI-B Funds on the Education of Oregon's Handicapped Children, June 1968-June 1973.
McDonnell, John J.; And Others
Summarized are results of a survey to determine the impact of 133 projects funded through Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title VI-B funds on handicapped children in Oregon by examining the number of children being served, the number of staff, and the number of dollars being expended. Significant findings are listed such as that deaf, blind, and trainable mentally retarded populations would not have been served if Title VI-B had not been available between 1968 and 1970, and that 87 percent of projects funded for an academic year were still in operation compared to only 44 percent of projects funded for the summer only. Among the 11 recommendations are that Title VI-B monies be awarded as seed money only and that the new special education service priorities be established every 3 years. General information includes report purpose, a summary of Title VI provisions, definitions of handicapping conditions, a description of eligible agencies, program purpose, program guidelines, evaluation model, and methodology. Seventeen tables are provided giving statistics such as the number and percentage of children served by handicapping condition. Five special projects are individually described including "A Study of the Extreme Learning Problem Program in Oregon." Appended are the questionnaire used in the survey and the cover letter. (DB)
