Bus Transportation to Places of Civic and Cultural Interest in New York City for Disadvantaged Pupils in Nonpublic Schools; Evaluation of New York City Title I Educational Projects 1966-67.
Evaluated is the first year of operation of a program of educational bus trips to provide enrichment of New York City children in parochial elementary schools. Funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I, the project used buses provided by the Board of Education. Appraisal of the program was based on interviews with the children, teachers responses to questionnaires, and information from principals. The main recommendation is that one person in each school should be responsible for screening trip requests and for supervising all arrangements. In addition, it appears that some teachers need more help in relating trips and sites to curriculum. For a history and description of ESEA Title I in New York City, 1965-1968, see UD 007 904. (NH)
