The Expansion of the After School Study Centers for Disadvantaged Public and Nonpublic School Pupils.
Lohman, Maurice A.
Evaluated is an extended school day program initiated with Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I, funds. To alleviate learning difficulties faced by disadvantaged children in the classroom, this after school program provided additional teacher time, attention, and instruction. The program offered tutorial services in reading and arithmetic as well as use of the library under the guidance of library teachers and teachers to help with homework. Special enrichment activities in art, music, and health education were also provided. Centers were set up in 120 public elementary schools and five nonpublic schools, and were open three days a week for two-hour sessions. Pupil attendance, which was voluntary, was one of the most crucial problems in the centers. The evaluation notes such other problems as the need for supervisors to handle all supervision and clerical details, conflicts over space, lack of provision for staff conferences, and lack of communication with the day school. An extensive appendix describes the evaluation design and the noted instruments. For a history and description of ESEA, Title I, in New York City, 1965-1968, see UD 007 904. (NH)
