Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965: FY 1993 Guide to Programs. CRS Report for Congress.
Irwin, Paul M.
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended, authorizes most federal programs for elementary and secondary education and is administered by the U.S. Department of Education. The major ESEA program is the Chapter 1, Title I program of grants to local education agencies for supplementary educational and related service to meet educationally disadvantaged students' needs. Other ESEA programs support the special needs of other students (such as migratory children), instruction in selected subjects, or program improvement and innovation. This report describes ESEA's reauthorization status, various ESEA programs, and an appropriations history. Each listing consists of program name, the statutory reference, a brief description, eligible grantees, the allocation method, number of participants, and a "Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance" reference number. The report also lists unfunded ESEA programs and other non-ESEA programs authorized by the Hawkins-Stafford Act amendments of 1988. Reauthorization of ESEA is anticipated during the 103rd Congress. The ESEA authorizes 46 programs; 39 have been funded since 1988. Appropriations total $8.6 billion in fiscal year 1993. Of this amount, nearly 80 percent is allocated to Chapter 1, Title I programs, including $6.1 billion for local education agency grants to provide services for 5 million educationally disadvantaged children. Two appendices contain eight selected references and amendments to P.L. 100-297b programs. (MLH)
