EVALUATION OF THE IMPACT OF TITLE I OF THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT IN THE CINCINNATI PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
JACOBS, JAMES N.; AND OTHERS
THE EFFECT WHICH THE FIRST YEAR OF VARIOUS ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT (ESEA) TITLE I COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROJECTS HAS HAD ON A DISADVANTAGED POPULATION IN CINCINNATI IS REPORTED IN THIS EVALUATION. THE EVALUATORS HYPOTHESIZED THAT THE MOST DRAMATIC RESULTS WOULD OCCUR IN SCHOOLS WHICH RECEIVED THE MOST INTENSIVE TREATMENT. IN THE EVALUATION ONLY VARIABLES WHICH ARE EMPIRICALLY OBSERVABLE WERE STUDIED. HOWEVER, A STRICT EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN WAS IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE SUCH A DESIGN WOULD HAVE MEANT LEAVING STUDENTS OUT OF THE PROJECT SO THAT THEY COULD PARTICIPATE IN CONTROL GROUPS. NEVERTHELESS, GENERALIZATIONS MADE FROM THE FINDINGS REVEAL THAT THE PROJECTS ARE "PROBABLY" HAVING AN IMPACT ON THE CINCINNATI SCHOOL SYSTEM. PART I OF THE REPORT EVALUATES THE COMBINED RESULTS OF THE 13 PROJECTS AND THEIR COMPONENT SERVICES ACCORDING TO--(1) THE RESULTS OF TEACHER, STUDENT, AND PARENT SURVEYS, (2) IMPROVED PUPIL ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT, (3) CHANGES IN PUPIL SELF-IMAGE, (4) PROMOTION RATES, (5) PUPIL ATTENDANCE RATES, AND (6) NUMBERS OF DROPOUTS. PART II DESCRIBES AND EVALUATES EACH PROJECT INDIVIDUALLY, INCLUDING AMONG OTHERS, CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, SATURDAY ENRICHMENT CLASSES, AND EDUCATION RESOURCES CENTERS PROJECTS. SUBSTANTIVE DATA IS REPORTED IN 36 TABLES THROUGHOUT THE REPORT. (LB)
