EVALUATION OF TITLE I PROJECTS (ESEA) IN SCHOOL DISTRICT OF PHILADELPHIA, ACADEMIC YEAR 1965-1966.
MAYFIELD, CLIFTON E.; AND OTHERS
INCLUDED IN THIS REPORT ARE SEPARATE EVALUATIONS OF 19 PROJECTS AND FIVE SUBPROJECTS, A DESCRIPTION OF A PROGRAM TO MASS-TEST A CROSS SECTION OF PUPILS FROM TITLE I SCHOOLS, AND THE RESULTS OF AN ACROSS-PROJECT TITLE I SURVEY. SIX OF THE PROJECTS (READING PROGRAM, MODERN MATHEMATICS, SCHOOL-COMMUNITY COORDINATORS, ELEMENTARY ART, COUNSELOR AIDES) WERE SIGNIFICANTLY BENEFICIAL TO PARTICIPATING PUPILS. EIGHT PROJECTS SUCCESSFULLY ATTAINED SOME OF THEIR SPECIFIED OBJECTIVES, AND ONE DEMONSTRATED LITTLE OR NO BENEFITS. PROGRESS IN EIGHT PROJECTS WAS INSUFFICIENT FOR INVESTIGATORS TO DRAW VALID CONCLUSIONS. ONE PROJECT WAS CANCELLED AND, THEREFORE, NOT EVALUATED. DATA FROM THE GENERAL TITLE I SURVEY INDICATE THAT THE JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL MATHEMATICS TEACHERS AND THE STAFF OF THE K-4-4-4 PROJECT HAD RATHER NEGATIVE ATTITUDES TOWARD THE TITLE I ACTIVITIES IN GENERAL. HOWEVER, MORE FAVORABLE ATTITUDES WERE REPORTED BY THE SCHOOL-COMMUNITY COORDINATORS AND BY THOSE INVOLVED IN THE ART PROJECT. (LB)
