THE NEWARK VICTORIA PLAN, A REPORT TO THE VICTORIA FOUNDATION ON THE STATUS OF THE PLAN.
FRIEDRICHS, ROBERT W.; AND OTHERS
THIS EVALUATION IS CONCERNED WITH THE FIRST YEAR OF IMPLEMENTATION OF THE VICTORIA PLAN IN A NEWARK, N.J., ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. THE COMPONENTS OF THIS IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM WHICH ARE DISCUSSED ARE CLASS TRIPS AND ASSEMBLIES, THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER, THE NURSERY SCHOOL, AND MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES. MOST OF THE EVALUATION IS DEVOTED TO THE PROBLEMS WHICH AROSE IN THE SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM, IN WHICH A FAILURE OF COMMUNICATION AND CONFUSION ABOUT AUTONOMY AND LINES OF AUTHORITY CREATED TENSIONS BETWEEN WORKERS AND ADMINISTRATORS. IT IS FELT THAT THE PLAN HAS BEEN WELL-INTEGRATED INTO THE SCHOOL AND HAS MET WITH FAVORABLE REACTIONS BY TEACHERS. THE TRIPS ARE THE BEST RECEIVED ASPECT ALTHOUGH THE SPECIALISTS AND EXTRA SERVICES ARE CONSIDERED "SATISFACTORY OR BETTER." PRESCHOOL CLASSES ARE"PRODUCING RESULTS" IN LESS THAN A YEAR OF OPERATION, AND THE ADDITIONAL MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES HAVE BEEN VALUABLE. ALTHOUGH THERE HAS BEEN LESS DISCIPLINE SINCE THE PLAN BEGAN, THE PROBLEM DOES NOT SEEM ABNORMAL. IT IS FELT THAT SOME METHOD SHOULD BE WORKED OUT TO REPLACE PERSONNEL WHO LEAVE DURING THE YEAR. (NH)
