Can Federal Money Be Used Creatively?

Campbell, Anne
November 1972
Educational Leadership;Nov1972, Vol. 30 Issue 2, p119
The article discusses how educational institutions in the United States can use federal aid effectively. According to the author, categorical aid with resulting differential in rules and regulations has made it difficult for a school system to approach a problem in a creative or innovative manner with critical mass concentration. The author asserts that to be able to use federal aid effectively, schools need the commitment of every individual involve. Schools must also develop a plan with an established goal and use a systematic procedure for addressing the problems associated with using federal aid.
