This report represents one component of a project to examine how recently or whether enacted federal education reforms, put into place through the reauthorization of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (Improving America's Schools Act of 1994), are being implemented in high poverty schools. The first part of the report consists of the report and recommendations of the Citizens' Commission on Civil Rights for Alabama. Alabama has been the staging ground for the great legal and political campaigns to enforce constitutional education provisions. Many vestiges of the old school system remain in Alabama, and the state is being slow to implement many of the changes called for in the law. In many of the state's poorest districts, Title I is being used to support the school's most basic operations, and not the special needs. The second part contains a summary of the report, and includes the findings and recommendations of a report previously released by the Commission, "Title I in Midstream: The Fight To Improve Schools for Poor Kids." (Contains 18 figures and 26 references.) (SLD)
