Two federal educational programs are covered in this annual report for FY 1969: Title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and Title III of the National Defense Education Act. The first report describes how the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the Virgin Islands, and the Department of the Interior (operating schools for Indian children) utilized Title II funds for the improvement of educational quality and opportunity through increased school library resources, textbooks, and other instructional materials. Also covered are staffing patterns for the first three years of the program, special purpose grants, participation of private school children and teachers, program coordination, accessibility of loaned materials, management activity, school media personnel, staff development, selection of materials, standards for instructional materials, and program evaluation. The second report describes the use of Title III funds to strengthen instruction in science, mathematics, foreign languages, and the humanities and arts through the purchase of equipment and materials, minor remodeling, and through state supervisory and related services. Major topics include priorities, program coordination, adequacy of equipment and reimbursement, improved instructional patterns and teaching techniques, curriculum improvement, student achievement, and program evaluation.
