Wilson, Leon L.
Arkansas' evaluation of 1967 programs funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I, is based on data from 398 public school districts with about 170,000 disadvantaged students. This evaluation presents information on major achievements and includes descriptions of activities and methods, pressing educational needs, objectives, interagency coordination, staff development and utilization, involvement of nonpublic school children, and programs for the handicapped. Administrative problems are discussed. Narrative descriptions of nine exemplary or innovative activities point to such speech therapy programs, reading laboratories, health and physical education activities, a mobile dental unit, and a model materials center. Also noted are an elementary guidance and counseling program, closed circuit television instruction, social services, and an educational media program. (NH)
