A Summary of State Chapter 1 Participation and Achievement Information -- 1990-91.
Sinclair, Beth; Gutmann, Babette
This report summarizes the 1990-91 State Performance Reports for the Chapter 1 (Education Consolidation and Improvement Act) local education agency (LEA) program and the Chapter 1 State Agency Neglected or Delinquent program. Chapter 1 represents the largest investment in elementary and secondary education of the Federal government. With the amendments of the Hawkins Stafford Act of 1988, Chapter 1 has added accountability for student outcomes and increased its mechanisms for involving local practitioners in decision making and involving parents in the educational program. Under reporting requirements, the data of this report give a picture of Chapter 1 participation at state and national levels. Over 5.5 million students participated in 1990-91. Nearly three-quarters of these students received instruction in reading and almost half received instruction in mathematics. This report is organized into four chapters: (1) participation information, (2) achievement information, (3) allocation and cost information, and (4) information on the neglected or delinquent program. Six appendixes provide technical background, information about data collection, and supplemental information. Forty-seven tables and an additional 25 in the appendixes and 16 figures illustrate the discussion. (SLD)
