CITY-SCHOOLS PROJECT FOR WORK AMONG SPANISH-NAMED PEOPLE OF DENVER. EVALUATION REPORT.
Committee on Evaluation of the City-Schools Project, Denver, CO.
THIS REPORT IS AN EVALUATION OF A SCHOOL-COMMUNITY PROJECT ESTABLISHED IN 1953 (1) TO GUIDE THE SPANISH-NAMED POPULATION IN DENVER IN DEVELOPING SELF-HELP AND COMMUNAL ORGANIZATIONS AND TO SERVE AS A CONSULTANT TO CITY AND SCHOOL PERSONNEL IN PROMOTING INTERCULTURAL UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION. DATA WERE GATHERED BY OPINIONNAIRES, QUESTIONNAIRES, AND INTERVIEWS WITH SCHOOL PERSONNEL. FINDINGS ARE COMPARED WITH THOSE OF A PREVIOUS STUDY. IT IS FELT THAT DEFINITE PROGRESS WAS MADE TOWARD ACHIEVING THE PROJECT'S OBJECTIVES AND THAT GAINS IN EDUCATION, HOUSING, EMPLOYMENT, AND COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITY WERE MADE BY THE GROUP. SCHOOL HOLDING POWER AND AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE INCREASED. THIS SUCCESS IS ATTRIBUTED IN LARGE MEASURE TO THE EFFORTS OF THE HUMAN RELATIONS CONSULTANT EMPLOYED IN THE PROJECT. HOWEVER, ALTHOUGH THERE WAS IMPROVEMENT IN SOCIAL STATUS THERE STILL EXISTED AN OVERREPRESENTATION OF SPANISH-NAMED PEOPLE AMONG JUVENILE AND ADULT OFFENDERS, ON WELFARE ROLLS, AND IN PUBLIC HOUSING. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE PROGRAM BE CONTINUED UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF A REPRESENTATIVE STEERING COMMITTEE. (NH)
