THE AFTER-SCHOOL STUDY CENTERS FOR DISADVANTAGED PUPILS - REMEDIAL AND TUTORIAL - FOR PUBLIC AND NON-PUBLIC SCHOOL PUPILS.
BERNSTEIN, BRUCE H.
AN EVALUATION WAS MADE OF AFTER-SCHOOL REMEDIAL CENTERS FOR DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS. THE CENTERS WERE STAFFED BY PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOL PERSONNEL. DATA ON THE PUBLIC AND NONPUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS RECEIVING THE TUTORING WERE COLLECTED THROUGH INTERVIEWS AND OBSERVER REPORTS. THE INVESTIGATOR FOUND THAT THE CENTERS WERE INITIALLY SUCCESSFUL IN ESTABLISHING A FRIENDLY RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A PARTICIPATING NONPUBLIC SCHOOL AND A NEARBY PUBLIC SCHOOL, ALTHOUGH SOME ANIMOSITY DEVELOPED LATER BECAUSE OF SCHEDULING PROBLEMS. THE NONPUBLIC SCHOOLS HAD DIFFICULTY IN INTERESTING PARENTS AND STUDENTS AND IN SELECTING PUPILS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM. THE PUBLIC SCHOOL PERSONNEL FACED SEVERAL ADMINISTRATIVE PROBLEMS AS A RESULT OF HASTY PROGRAM PLANNING, RECOMMENDATIONS INDICATED A NEED FOR (1) A DISCUSSION OF THE MOST ADVANTAGEOUS TIME AND PLACE FOR THE PROGRAM, (2) PUBLIC INFORMATION AND PARENT SUPPORT, AND (3) ATTENTION TO THE PROBLEM OF PUBLIC AND NONPUBLIC STUDENT MINGLING. THE FUNCTIONS OF THE PROGRAM ARE SPECIFICALLY DESCRIBED, AND FURTHER SUGGESTIONS FOR ITS IMPROVEMENT ARE MADE. (NC)
