In 1978, Congress reviewed and revised the major federal education programs covered by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Programs were expanded, tightened up, or redirected. For example, Title I and impact aid will direct millions more in federal aid to the big cities of the North and Midwest at the expense of the rural South. A new and already controversial basic skills program was created, along with 12 new categorical aid programs. Disadvantaged children attending private schools were guaranteed equal shares of federal education funds. This report contains chapters on all the major ESEA programs: Title I, impact aid, emergency school aid, bilingual education, and basic skills. Charts and graphs illustrate where the money will go, including breakdowns by state and for the 50 largest school districts. The report presents and explains the details of each program and is intended to help the educator develop and implement plans that will ensure the best return for a school's dollars. Explanations concerning how the legislation worked its way through Congress are also included. (Author/JM)
