National Advisory Council on Equality of Educational Opportunity, Final Report.
National Advisory Council on Equality of Educational Opportunity.
Section 716 of the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) provides for the establishment of a fifteen member National Advisory Council on Equality of Educational Opportunity (NACEEO). The purpose of the Council is to oversee the major functions of ESAA which are to provide financial assistance to aid in the school desegregation process. In this final report of the Council, its operations are reviewed. Major activities undertaken during the past six years are described. These activities included site visitations, attendance at state conferences, a review of the management of specific programs, and the sponsorship of public hearings and meetings in eleven states. Recommendations for the future of specific ESAA programs, activities, and legislation are suggested. An analysis of the Council's effectiveness is included. Specific provisions of ESAA and NACEEO recommendations with regard to them are presented in chart form. An extensive appendix includes statistical information on ESAA implementation. It also includes a report on Federal assistance to desegregating school districts, which contains data on specific distribution of funds to ESAA programs. (PMR)
