One to Grow On. Chapter One in Ohio: Education Consolidation and Improvement Act.
Since 1965, first through Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and now through Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act, funds have been allocated to supplement regular classroom instruction for children achieving below grade level. Together, Title I and Chapter 1 form a 20-year continuum of a concentrated, sharply focused effort against the sources of educational failure. In Ohio the program is in place in 99% of the state's 616 school districts. Among those helped by the program are migrant children as well as handicapped, neglected, and delinquent youths. In this program, the children typically receive 30 to 45 minutes of individualized reading or mathematics instruction each day. Emphasis is on having the children work independently at their own speed. They are tested at the beginning and at the end of the school year, after which many are able to leave the program because they are ready to keep up with their regular classes. School districts are helped in implementing the program by consultants from the Ohio Department of Education's Division of Federal Assistance. Parents contribute by participating in parent advisory councils and helping with Chapter 1 classes. (FL)
