Title:Promoting a comprehensive approach to educational opportunity: A pilot inventory of education-related federal programs for children and youth
Organization:Cross & Joftus
Short Description:This report presents the rationale for adopting a more comprehensive approach to education reform, the role an inventory of federal programs can play in this effort, and the findings from a pilot inventory of education-related federal programs for children and youth.
Annotation:This report presents the rationale for adopting a more comprehensive approach to education reform, the role an inventory of federal programs can play in this effort, and the findings from a pilot inventory of education-related federal programs for children and youth. The inventory, which is at the heart of this work, illustrates the best and the worst of federal investments focused on improving educational outcomes for children and youth-- particularly those from disadvantaged families and communities. The pilot clearly shows the many ways that federal programs are seeking to support our young people, and it also highlights the clear and pervasive fragmentation in the system, which often prevents resources from being used to their greatest effect.
