Student Eligibility and Other Problems in Federally Funded and Operated Schools in Puerto. Report by the Comptroller General of the United States.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
This report by the Comptroller General of the United States is a review of the Antilles Consolidated School System (ACSS) in Puerto Rico. ACSS, operated by the Department of the Navy, provides free education to children of certain federal employees. The paper reviews the condition of ACSS facilities and efforts to improve it as well as overall ACSS school administration, including management, budget, eligibility of students, and relations between the U.S. Office of Education and the Navy. The paper concludes that the Office of Education needs to insure that criteria designating student eligibility are consistently applied. It also needs to determine whether additional legislation is required in order to allow off-base students to attend ACSS schools. (Author/LD)
