Extractions: Parental Involvement Programs The Education for Homeless Children and Youth program provides activities for and services to ensure that homeless children and homeless youths enroll in, attend, and achieve in school; to establish or designate an office in each state education agency (SEA) and outlying area for the coordination of education for homeless children and youth; to develop and carry out a state or area plan for the education of homeless children and youth; to develop and implement programs for school personnel to heighten awareness of specific problems of homeless children and youth; and to provide grants to local education agencies. Funds for this program are used primarily to identify homeless children, and to develop and carry out plans to ensure that homeless children and youth in each state have access to a free, appropriate public education. Funds may be used by SEAs for direct education services to children to encourage participation in school and improve their chances of success. Funds may also be used to support programs for school personnel relating to homeless children and youth. When their appropriation exceeds the amount received in fiscal year 1990 the SEAs must make subgrants to LEAs for the purpose of facilitating the enrollment, attendance, and success of homeless children and youth in schools. Departments of education in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the outlying areas, and schools serving Indian students that are funded by the Secretary of the Interior may apply for funds under this program.

Extractions: Post-Crescent staff writer Freedom made the commitment to ensure all children equal access to a public education well before state and federal governments made it law in the early 1970s, he said. Yet, in times of tight budgets there is no denying the mounting cost of educating everyone from the blind, deaf and medically fragile to children with cognitive and emotional disabilities and speech delays. While Congress considers reauthorizing the 28-year-old law now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), area school systems are picking up the bulk of the bill for an ever-growing number of special-education children. Two dozen Fox Valley school districts spent more than $62 million in district, state and federal dollars in the 2000-01 school year to educate 7,597 students with disabilities, according to the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute. In the coming school year, Freedom, with a total enrollment of 1,590, will spend $1.9 million of its $12.2 million operational budget educating 215 children with disabilities.

Extractions: Dr. Mel Levine, founder of All Kinds of Minds Institute, working with a student. Photo courtesy of All Kinds of Minds Eight-year-old Tamarís fingers dance across a set of harp strings like small waves rhythmically pounding the surf. While the large instrument dwarfs her, she doesnít seem to mind as she sits and plays a complicated classical tune. After the musical interlude, she hops onto her living room couch; her shiny dark hair bounces as she moves. Her bright smile reveals a missing front tooth with its adult counterpart just barely poking through. "Tamar is a real leader among her friends and sheís so good at sports. Oh, and she takes dance and gymnastics," her mother, Margie Levinson, informed me privately. With so many activities, boundless energy and obvious talent, it is hard to believe that like 40 to 50 percent of students across the nation, Tamar has faced serious learning problems in school.
