REPLICATIONS OF SOME ASPECTS OF THE HIGHER HORIZONS PROGRAM IN A SOUTHERN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.
THE INVESTIGATORS WERE INTERESTED IN--WHAT PORTIONS OF THE HIGHER HORIZONS PROGRAM COULD BE REPLICABLE, MEASURABLE CHANGES IN STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT, ATTITUDES, AND HABITS AS A RESULT OF THE EXPERIMENT, AND SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY DYNAMICS WHICH PRECIPITATED AND ACCOMPANIED INNOVATIONS. CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE HIGHER HORIZONS PROGRAM FOR CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN WERE ATTEMPTED IN THE SEVENTH GRADE OF JACOX JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL IN NORFOLK, VIRGINIA. AN INSERVICE READING PROGRAM FOR TEACHERS, A PROGRAM OF INCREASED DIRECT TEACHER-PARENT RELATIONSHIPS, A PROGRAM OF INCREASED GROUP GUIDANCE, AND A PROGRAM OF INTRASCHOOL CULTURAL ENRICHMENT WERE INCLUDED IN THE EXPERIMENT. THE COST OF REPLICATING THE PRINCIPLES AND PROCEDURES DESIGNED TO HELP CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN MAKE BETTER USE OF EDUCATION WAS NOT EXORBITANT. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "JOURNAL OF NEGRO EDUCATION," SPRING 1963.
