Describes a study of two federally funded programs that provide for the elementary and secondary education of military dependents who live in the United States. One program, the Department of Defense (DoD) Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS), provides education for children living on military installations that are adjacent to communities where the local schools had at one time been deemed unable to provide a “suitable” education. The other program complements the DDESS program; it supports the education of military dependents in communities where these children are educated in the local public schools. The report discusses distribution and use of Impact Aid funds to local educational agencies (LEAs) that educate the children of military personnel, and possible transfer of these schools to their respective LEA's.
