Rural Child Care Project. 1967-1968 Research Evaluation. Final Report.
Briscoe, May E.; Archambo, Judith P.
The focus of the Rural Child Care Project is culturally disadvantaged children and their families in 10 Appalachian counties of Eastern Kentucky. Research evaluation of the Project during 1967-68 had 4 major objectives: (1) to assess the relationship between a child's attendance in a Child Development Center and his subsequent intellectual performance and academic achievement; (2) to assess the effect of the combined casework, homemaking, and day care services on families of children who had been exposed to the Child Development Program; (3) to ascertain the image of the Project in participating counties; and (4) to evaluate the effectiveness of the subprofessional staff in providing Project services to the culturally disadvantaged child and his family. Results are discussed in terms of these objectives. The hypotheses and methodology used in assessing results are given along with tables incorporating the statistical data. Problems are defined and a review of relevant literature is given. The appendices include copies of questionnaires, education and attitude scales, and instructions for judging the results of these scales. (EV)
