Annual reports of two federal education programs for FY 1970 comprise this document: Title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and Title III of the National Defense Education Act. Both reports describe how the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the Virgin Islands, the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the Department of the Interior (for schools operated by its Bureau of Indian Affairs), and the Department of Defense (for overseas dependents' schools) utilized their program funds. Areas covered in the first report include standards for instructional materials, selection of materials, effect on curriculum and teaching methods, special-purpose grants, special programs, program evaluation, state and local needs for instructional materials and management, improved management techniques, accessibility of loaned materials, coordination with other programs, participation by private school teachers and children, and staffing and staff development. The major sections of the second report delineate state education agency services to local education agencies, priorities, coordination with other programs, reimbursement and adequacy of equipment and materials, evidence of improved instruction (instructional patterns/techniques, curriculum, student achievement), evaluation, and data on fund sources and expenditures. Both reports provide supportive statistics. (JD)
