ONE TO GET READY...A REPORT ON SOME OF THE WAYS THAT TITLE I OF THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT IS PROVIDING SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN IN MARYLAND'S LOW INCOME NEIGHBORHOODS.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT TITLE I PROJECTS IN 23 MARYLAND SCHOOL DISTRICTS ARE REVIEWED IN THIS REPORT. IN THE PERIOD FROM 1965 TO 1967 $29 MILLION WAS APPROPRIATED FOR TITLE I ACTIVITIES, WHICH WERE OFFERED TO 46,000 PUBLIC AND NONPUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS, INCLUDING 39,000 IN A SUMMER SCHOOL SESSION IN 1966. THE ACTIVITIES OF THE PROJECTS INCLUDED--(1) USE OF CONSULTANTS, TUTORS, AND AIDES, (2) PRESCHOOL CLASSES, (3) A PROGRAM FOR PREGNANT GIRLS, (4) HEALTH AND NUTRITION PROGRAMS, (5) LANGUAGE ARTS INSTRUCTION IN THE PRIMARY GRADES, (6) AN OUTDOOR EDUCATION PROGRAM, (7) DROPOUT PREVENTION PROGRAMS, (8) FAMILY LIFE INSTRUCTION, (9) USE OF CHILDREN'S AIDES AND PARENT HELPERS, (10) EMPLOYMENT OF ADDITIONAL REGULAR STAFF, AND (11) INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC CLASSES. IT IS FELT THAT TITLE I PROGRAMS WOULD BE MORE EFFECTIVE IF THERE WERE BETTER USE OF COMMUNITY RESOURCES, MORE INSERVICE TEACHER EDUCATION AND PARENT INVOLVEMENT, AND GREATER EMPHASIS ON THE LEARNING IN THE EARLY SCHOOL YEARS.
