Educational Enrichment for Disadvantaged Inschool Neighborhood Youth Corps Enrollees During the Summer 1967. Evaluation of New York City Title I Educational Projects 1966-67.
Williams, E. Belvin; Tannenbaum, Robert S.
A 1967 evaluation of New York City's Neighborhood Youth Corps (NYC) educational enrichment program presents the objectives and the methods of implementation of the Board of Education and the local community agencies which administered the project. Criticized are the diversity of the program objectives, the lack of provision for a specified evaluation, and the handicaps posed by "avoidable problems." The most damaging problems were (1) lateness of funding; (2) multiplicity of goals; (3) friction between the Board and some of the agencies; and (4) lack of coordination between the various components of the NYC programs. Also noted is the low priority given to evaluation of the program's effectiveness. (NH)
