Inschool Guidance for Disadvantaged Pupils in Nonpublic Schools. Evaluation of New York City Title I Educational Projects 1966-67.
Sebald, Dorothy Davis
A New York City program offering clinical and guidance services to parochial school children is discussed in this evaluation of an Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I project. The program was operated by the Board of Education and was to offer services comparable to those in the public schools. Based on data gathered by evaluation instruments, observation, interviews, and certain supplemental information, it was clear that the program suffered most from staffing shortages which made it impossible to achieve the stated goals of the project. Moreover, the ratio of professional to pupil was far too high. Other difficulties involved differences in culture, religion, and educational practices between the professionals and the parochial schools. Also reported are problems of administration, lack of teacher orientation, articulation and communication between related programs, and inadequate facilities and materials. The project has potential and many participants felt it was valuable. However, adjustments in policy and practice are needed.
