The Distribution of State-Administered Federal Education Funds in FY 1992: Seventeenth Annual Report to Congress under Section 406A of the General Education Provisions Act.
Gutmann, Babette; And Others
Most federal programs supporting elementary and secondary education are state-administered; the federal government allocates funds to the states, which then suballocate the funds to local educational agencies (LEAs) and other agencies. This report presents information on the states' use of funds from the federal fiscal-year 1992 appropriations. Data were collected from 29 grant programs, including programs for disadvantaged children (Chapter 1), children with disabilities (Individuals with Disabilities Act), educational improvement (Chapter 2), drug-free schools and communities, math and science education (Eisenhower grants), vocational education, adult education, immigrant education, foreign-languages assistance, education for homeless children and youth, and library services and construction. For each program covered in this report, information is provided on the number of subgrantees, the type of agencies receiving suballocations, and the size of the suballocation. For those programs where LEAs receive more than 90 percent of the funds, the report also examines the distribution of LEA funds in relation to district poverty, urbanicity, and enrollment size. Findings indicate that: (1) nationally, the vast number of funds were suballocated to local education agencies (LEAs); (2) almost one-half of the suballocations reported by the states across all programs were very small in size; (3) for most programs, funds appeared to be targeted more heavily to urban LEAs; (4) the patterns of suballocation to LEAs by LEA-enrollment size largely reflected funding patterns by urbanicity; and (5) during 1990-92, the distribution of funds among high-poverty and low-poverty LEAs was relatively stable. A total of 207 tables are included. Appendices contain a glossary and a summary of suballocations across all programs by state. (LMI)
