National Inst. for Advanced Study in Teaching Disadvantaged Youth, Washington, DC.
The Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL), with support from The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education through its Inter-Institutional Program Development Project, has prepared this report as phase 2 of a three-phase project designed to improve the educational approach to disadvantaged children. This report reveals the findings of three surveys--(1) of public schools, (2) of colleges and universities, and (3) of teacher education institutions--to determine the nature and extent of programs, in Texas and Louisiana, which deal with the education of disadvantaged children. The scope and limitations, the instruments used, statistical analyses of the findings, conclusions, and implications of each survey are included. Appended are SEDL meeting programs plus extensive lists of participating school districts; survey respondents; required and available courses, seminars, workshops, and inservice programs in teaching the disadvantaged; research projects related to teaching the disadvantaged; teaching materials to be used with disadvantaged children; followup studies of teacher preparation programs; Upward-Bound programs; institutions providing recruitment, role definition, and preparation of paraprofessionals; masters' theses and doctoral dissertations concerned with educating the disadvantaged; and institutions having or planning early childhood education programs.
