SEC. 8001. [20 U.S.C. 7701] PURPOSE
In order to fulfill the Federal responsibility to assist with the provision of educational services to federally connected children in a manner that promotes control by local educational agencies with little or no Federal or State involvement, because certain activities of the Federal Government, such as activities to fulfill the responsibilities of the Federal Government with respect to Indian tribes and activities under section 514 of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940 (50 U.S.C. App. 574), place a financial burden on the local educational agencies serving areas where such activities are carried out, and to help such children meet challenging State standards, it is the purpose of this title to provide financial assistance to local educational agencies that--
    1. experience a substantial and continuing financial burden due to the acquisition of real property by the United States;
    2. educate children who reside on Federal property and whose parents are employed on Federal property;
    3. educate children of parents who are in the military services and children who live in low-rent housing;
    4. educate heavy concentrations of children whose parents are civilian employees of the Federal Government and do not reside on Federal property; or
    5. need special assistance with capital expenditures for construction activities because of the enrollments of substantial numbers of children who reside on Federal lands and because of the difficulty of raising local revenue through bond referendums for capital projects due to the inability to tax Federal property.
