Educational Services for Socially Maladjusted Pupils in Selected Institutional Schools. Evaluation of New York City Title I Educational Projects 1966-67.
Williams, Thelma M.
Evaluated is a project to increase services for socially maladjusted pupils in four New York City schools located in institutional settings. Additional teaching staff, equipment, and supplies were allotted to these schools under Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I programs. The degree of implementation of the plan to augment staff services and the behavior, achievement, and attitudes of the pupils were appraised, based on information derived from evaluations of staff members and pupils. Although Title I funds expanded and enriched these programs, the special problems of their populations point to the need for further program improvement. It is recommended that: (1) remedial reading and math should be further expanded; (2) testing and record keeping should be more uniform and comprehensive; (3) physical space should be increased; (4) a teacher training program should be initiated; and (5) in three of these residential schools homeless children without serious disturbances should attend regular community schools. For a history and description of ESEA Title I in New York City, see UD 007 904. (NH)
