Educational Research Services, Inc., White Plains, NY.
An independent evaluation of the VISTA program in two Baltimore, Maryland, schools describes the objectives and activities of this project funded by the Economic Opportunity Act. Assessment of the VISTA efforts was based on questionnaires completed by the 10 volunteers, and interviews with principals, teachers, guidance counselors, pupils, and parents. The strengths and weaknesses of the project are discussed. The evaluation team feels that VISTA efforts should be more conslidated so that the available resources could be used to strengthen the program and enable a more visible impact of VISTA on school-community relationship.
