Evaluation of Elementary Summer School ESEA (Title I).
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI.
This (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) summer school program was designed to give educational experiences which would improve basic skills and stimulate the desire to learn of children from impoverished homes. Participation in the program was by invitation, but was also voluntary since parental approval was required. Objectives of the program were directed toward enriching and strengthening the child's skills. Grade advancement was not an objective of this program. The data support the conclusion that the basic focus of the ESEA-Elementary School program has produced the desired results and should be continued. Children from disadvantaged homes have demonstrated measurable increases in reading and arithmetic achievement during the six weeks of the program. (Author)
