Reauthorization of Expiring Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Programs. Chapter 2 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act. Volume 3. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Elementary, Secondary and Vocational Education of the Committee on Education and Labor. House of Representatives, One Hundredth Congress, First Session on H.R. 5.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This document reports on the third of a series of hearings on the reauthorization of expiring federal elementary and secondary education programs. Four school administrators gave testimony regarding the block grant programs funded under the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act, Chapter 2. Testimony suggested the following: (1) the proposed audit reforms are laudatory but the provision of "technical assistance" requires further definition; (2) a specific percentage of Chapter 2 funds should be designated for implementation of the principles of "Effective Schools"; (3) a national study on Chapter 2 programs found that Chapter 2 funds are widely but unevenly distributed and are used by most schools for computer applications, about two-thirds of eligible private schools use Chapter 2 funds, and parents are not actively involved in decisions regarding Chapter 2 funds; and (4) the Orange County (Florida) Public Schools are a case study in the effectiveness of Chapter 2 programs. Seven supplementary prepared statements are appended. (FMW)
