Final Report. Committee on Experimental Program to Improve Educational Achievements in Special Service Schools.
Gordon, Edmund W.
This report results from the efforts of a committee established to make suggestions for the use of a $10 million fund for the improvement of the New York City (NYC) elementary schools. The committee, consisting of school administrators, an educational specialist, and representatives from the United Federation of Teachers and the United Parents Association, made several visits to selected programs in NYC and other parts of the country. For the most part, however, the committee reviewed reports and program analyses supplied by the chairman's staff. The major thrust of the report is a proposal for an experimental program to test the value of four educational models assigned for disadvantaged pupils in economically depressed areas. The committee regards the proposed models as "the most promising patterns available at the present time." The report also includes a discussion of trends in elementary education, including the More Effective Schools program and the All Day Neighborhood schools in NYC. An appendix contains descriptions of various preschool programs, language programs, programs using individualized instruction, and programs using peer tutoring. (LB)
