A Description and Evaluation of Selected Educational Components of Community Action Programs, Portland Attachment.
Kirschner Associates, Inc., Albuquerque, NM.
The Reed College (Portland, Oregon) adult literacy training program, funded by the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO), is intended to provide tutoring for functionally illiterate adults in reading, mathematics, English, social studies, and related subjects. Reed College has also cooperated with two OEO programs already completed--school district programs of summer elementary study and summer pre-high school orientation--and with a Council of Churches program. Program coordinators and Reed College librarians have been the chief policy makers. It appears that, although welfare students remain in the program longer than Federally subsidized or independent students, students as a whole see value in it and tend to express their needs and problems (largely related to student processing and to tutors) rather than withdraw. The emergence of neighborhood groups is viewed as the main side effect of the community action programs. (ly)
