Mahan, Thomas W.
The final technical report summarizes the development, operations, and effectiveness of Project Concern, Hartford's program of suburban school placement for inner-city children. This approach to educational improvement through busing disadvantaged students to neighboring towns was funded in part by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title III. Included is information on selection of the ghetto pupils, their academic and social adjustment in the suburban schools, and the effects of the project on the suburban students, parents and schools. Also discussed are those children and families who dropped out of the project, and the operational characteristics of the program. (NH)
