COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAM. NEWSLETTER.
Fresno City Unified School District, CA.
TWO NEWSLETTERS FROM THE COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAM IN FRESNO INCLUDED PLANS FOR THE PLANNING GRANT PROGRAM, THE BASIC PROGRAM, AND THE INTENSIVE PROGRAM. THE BASIC PROGRAM SHOULD REDUCE PUPIL-TEACHER RATIO, PROVIDE PRESCHOOL PROJECTS THROUGH THE USE OF EITHER SCHOOL FACILITIES OR PRIVATE FACILITIES, PROVIDE REMEDIAL AND CORRECTIVE PROGRAMS IN LANGUAGE ARTS, AND PROVIDE FOR EVALUATION, TESTING, AND CONSULTATION EACH YEAR. DATA ON ADULT EDUCATION SHOWED THAT FIVE HUNDRED ADULTS REGISTERED FOR THE CLASSES, AND THAT THE NEGRO AND MEXICAN AMERICAN ADULTS WERE ATTENDING THE CLASSES IN LARGE NUMBERS. ALSO REPORTED WERE THE FIELD TRIPS TAKEN BY THE STUDENTS TO SUCH PLACES AS ART CENTERS, HOSPITALS, LIBRARIES, AND THE ZOO. THE SECOND NEWSLETTER STATED THE COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAM IN FRESNO HAD COMPLETED TWO YEARS OF EXPERIMENTATION UNDER THE MCATEER ACT. TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND CITIZENS WERE INVOLVED IN TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH THE GOALS OF THE PROGRAM. FUTURE PROGRAMS SHOULD INCLUDE INCREASED EDUCATION FOR ADULTS, MORE FIELD TRIPS, LOWERING OF THE PUPIL-TEACHER RATIO, AND BRINGING IN OF OUTSIDE SPEAKERS.
