Evaluation of Title I (ESEA) Programs, 1967-1968.
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI.
Federal funds granted to local school districts under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act are specifically intended to assist the local district in meeting the special needs of educationally disadvantaged children. During the 1967-68 school year, the Milwaukee Public Schools received more than 2 million dollars of Title I funds which were used to support different programs from kindergarten through grade 12. The Department of Educational Research was responsible for developing an evaluation plan to aid in determining the degree to which the aims and goals of the Title I activities were being met. This task required the research staff to work cooperatively with project directors and school personnel in the translation of goals into statements of expected changes in observable behavior, in the selection or development of tests or instruments within the schools, in the collection of appropriate data, and in the analysis and interpretation of the findings.
