EVALUATION OF ESEA TITLE I PROJECTS OF CALIFORNIA SCHOOLS--SUMMARY OF ANNUAL REPORT, 1965-1966.
LAW, ALEXANDER I.; MADDEN, VINCENT J.
THE PROGRESS OF THE 1965 ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT (ESEA) TITLE I COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROJECTS IN 1,044 CALIFORNIA SCHOOL DISTRICTS IS SUMMARIZED IN THIS REPORT. THE FIRST SECTION GIVES AN OVERVIEW OF THE PROJECTS AND DISCUSSES FUND ALLOCATIONS AND SUCH PROBLEMS AS LACK OF STAFF AND THE TIGHT TIME SCHEDULE DUE TO DELAYED CONGRESSIONAL ACTION ON FUND APPROPRIATIONS. TWO RELATIVELY NEW IDEAS FOR THE EFFECTIVE OPERATION OF LOCAL PROJECTS ALSO ARE PRESENTED--(1) INVOLVEMENT OF COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROJECTS, AND (2) PROVISION OF ESEA TITLE I SERVICES TO NONPUBLIC SCHOOL CHILDREN. THE SECOND SECTION OF THE REPORT ANALYZES AND EVALUATES THE PROJECTS IN GENERAL AND DISCUSSES SOME OF THEIR SPECIFIC ACTIVITIES. THE THREE MOST COMMON OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECTS WERE TO PROVIDE REMEDIAL ACTIVITIES, CULTURAL ENRICHMENT, AND SUPPORTIVE AND AUXILIARY SERVICES. SPECIFIC EFFORTS WERE MADE TO REDUCE THE TEACHER'S WORK LOAD AND TO TEACH ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE. THIS SECTION ALSO CONTAINS A DISCUSSION OF THE PROJECTS' READING ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAMS. IN THE REPORT'S FINAL SECTION THERE ARE SPECIFIC DESCRIPTIONS OF FOUR SAMPLE PROJECTS AND DISCUSSIONS OF SOME INNOVATIVE PROGRAMS--SERVICES FOR EXPECTANT MOTHERS, MORE CAPABLE STUDENTS, STUDENT-TEACHER RATIO, AND EXPLORATORY WORK EXPERIENCE. THE GENERALLY FAVORABLE ANECDOTAL COMMENTS OF VARIOUS PROJECT PERSONNEL ALSO ARE REPORTED. (LB)
