Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) was designed to provide local educational agencies with financial assistance to eliminate minority group segregation, to prevent minority group isolation, and to aid children who have been educationally disadvantaged because of isolation. An overview of the programs funded under the ESAA is provided in this document, together with a full history of the appropriations for these programs. The administration and evaluation of the Act are described. The role of the Office for Civil Rights is explained. Testimony from different school districts of the country as to how they are using and profiting from ESAA is also included. Changes in ESAA regulations and procedures are suggested. Also discussed is an amendment proposed by the state of Maine to ensure that Franco-American students will be afforded the same benefits as other minority groups under the Act. Supplemental materials, such as letters, prepared statements, and the texts of regulations relating to the ESAA, are appended to the document. (Author/AM)
