EARLY ADMISSION TO SCHOOL FOR SELECTED CHILDREN.
TISDALL, WILLIAM J.; AND OTHERS
ACCORDING TO N.E.A. (1958), ONLY ONE IN EVERY FIVE SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAD EXCEPTIONS TO AN ARBITRARY ADMISSION SCHOOL AGE, AND ADMISSION WAS USUALLY DUE TO PARENT INITIATIVE. A FIELD DEMONSTRATION OF EARLY ADMISSION WAS INITIATED IN WARREN, PENNSYLVANIA (TO LAST FOR TWO YEARS), TO ASSURE THAT THE TESTED PROCESSES AND FAVORABLE RESULTS OF EARLY ADMISSION WOULD BE CALLED TO THE ATTENTION OF EDUCATORS AND THE PUBLIC. IT BEGAN WITH A PUBLIC CAMPAIGN AIMED AT INFORMING THE COMMUNITY. EFFORTS WERE MADE TO CONDUCT THE DEMONSTRATIONS WITHIN THE PRACTICES OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. NINETEEN EARLY ENTRANTS, RANGING IN AGES FROM THREE YEARS ELEVEN MONTHS TO FOUR YEARS EIGHT MONTHS, PARTICIPATED. FIRST GRADE TEACHERS REPORTED THAT SATISFACTORY OR BETTER ACADEMIC PROGRESS WAS BEING MADE BY THESE CHILDREN AT THE TIME. THE WARREN SCHOOL BOARD HAS DECIDED TO CONTINUE THE PROGRAM.
