ISSUES IN EDUCATING THE CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED.
KAPLAN, BERNARD A.
THIS ARTICLE OUTLINES A NUMBER OF ISSUES CONNECTED WITH ESTABLISHING "HIGHER HORIZONS" COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAMS. SPECIFICALLY DISCUSSED ARE THE DESIGNATION OF "CULTURALLY DEPRIVED" SCHOOLS AND PUPILS, THE IMPACT OF COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAMS ON NONTARGET SCHOOLS AND ON DE FACTO SEGREGATION, AND THE FINANCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF SUCH PROGRAMS. THE GRADE LEVEL AT WHICH COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAMS MIGHT BE ESTABLISHED, THE POSSIBILITY OF A "HAWTHORNE EFFECT" IN A PROGRAM'S SUCCESS, AND THE CHALLENGE WHICH THE STUDENT'S DIFFERENT CULTURAL BACKGROUND PRESENTS TO THE SCHOOL ARE ALSO DISCUSSED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "PHI DELTA KAPPAN," VOLUME 45, NUMBER 2, NOVEMBER 1963. (LB)
