An Assessment of Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) Program Operations. Volume III: Policy Recommendations.
Smith, Stephen M.
Synthesized in this report are the findings of a study which focused on the effectiveness of the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) program at the Federal level in achieving two major outcomes: (1) targeting, or focusing, of ESAA grants and grant funds on school districts currently having the greatest desegregation related needs; and (2) funding activities that effectively fulfill the greatest desegregation related needs of school districts. Recommendations for changes in the ESAA program that are likely to enhance the effectiveness of the program in achieving its purposes are proposed. Specific needs addressed include those related to the planning and implementation of actions to eliminate discriminatory practices and reduce or prevent minority isolation and those related to actions that seek to promote equal status interactions and expectations within schools among minority and majority group members. Also reviewed are recommendations for changes in the Act already proposed by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Summaries of findings from other volumes dealing with this study are presented in the appendix. (Author/EB)
