Federal Policy Options for Improving the Education of Low-Income Students. Volume II, Commentaries.
Rotberg, Iris C., Ed.; And Others
The Rand Institute on Education and Training, in consultation with the Committee on Education and Labor of the House of Representatives, undertook an analysis of federal policy options to improve education in low-income areas. This analysis focuses on Chapter 1 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, the federal program for assisting disadvantaged students. This study draws on a comprehensive review of existing evaluation data, invited commentaries, and a commissioned study of federal options for school finance equalization. Results are reported in three volumes. This volume contains the invited commentaries of 91 policymakers, researchers, and educators describing the strengths and shortcomings of Chapter 1 exactly as submitted to RAND. Appendixes to this volume contain a letter soliciting commentaries and a description of the whole study. (Contains 124 references.) (SLD)
