Making Progress: An Update on State Implementation of Federal Education Laws Enacted in 1994.
Anderson, Leslie M.; Welsh, Megan
This study focuses on the work of state administrators of federal programs. It follows up on baseline information collected during late fall 1996 and early winter 1997, analyzing the ways in which state administrators have continued to respond to the new laws. The programs included in the follow-up study are as follows: the Goals 2000: Educate America Act; Title I-A: Improving Basic Programs Implemented by Local Educational Agencies; Title I-B: Even Start Family Literacy; Title I-C: Education of Migratory Children; Title I-D: Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, and At-Risk of Dropping Out; Title II: Eisenhower Professional Development Program; Title III, Subpart 2: Technology Literacy Challenge Fund; Title IV: Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities; and Title VI: Innovative Education Program Strategies. The study focuses on changes in program administration 4 years after the 1994 enactment of Goals 2000 and ESEA. Specifically, the study asks how state program managers are implementing the laws' provisions, how implementation has changed when compared with state practices under the predecessor programs, and what federal and state factors have influenced these changes. An appendix of survey instruments and a list of tables are provided. (DFR)
