Evaluation of the Program Events Facet of the Cultural Enrichment Project; Summary of Project Evaluation (ESEA, Title I).
Detroit Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Research and Development.
A Cultural Enrichment Project (CEP) in the Detroit public and parochial schools reached 100,000 disadvantaged pupils and offered about 50 different program events. This evaluation of CEP is based on ratings by teachers, attendance figures, and a cost per pupil analysis. It was found that all but three of the events received teacher ratings of "high" to "very high." More secondary public school students than public elementary or parochial school students participated in the events. Costs per pupil were very high for the three programs rated highest by teachers. It is noted that an artist who comes from the same milieu as the audience can be more effective than one who may be a superior artist but from a different social class or ethnic background. (NH)
