US Department of Education: "Oldies But Goodies: Learning from the Past and Present, Educating the Future"
With nearly 90 years of cumulative experience providing legal advice on federal education programs, particularly Title I and the other programs in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 as amended (ESEA), two ED attorneys have a wealth of experience to help inform the present and future implementation of ESEA. On the 55th Anniversary of the original enactment of ESEA, join them to explore the lessons we can learn from the enactment and earlier years of ESEA that help inform the current and future administration of ESEA. Discuss how significant provisions such as supplement not supplant, maintenance of effort, equitable services for private school children, and allowable uses of funds support State and local federal program administrators in serving underserved populations and critical educational needs. Commemorate the ESEA’s passage with a tribute to lessons learned-and music on the side.
