Services to Children in Open Enrollment Receiving Schools: Elementary Schools, Intermediate and Junior High Schools, and Academic High Schools. Evaluation of ESEA Title I Projects in New York City, 1967-68.
Fox, David J.; And Others
This New York City school district educational project dealt with a projected 13,605 children who changed schools under the Free Choice Open Enrollment Program. The program allows parents to transfer their children from predominantly Negro-Puerto Rican schools to schools with better educational facilities and a more varied ethnic population. The fundamental objective was to improve the participating elementary, secondary, and high school children's basic academic skills and attitudes toward education through the provision of additional personnel and services in the "receiving" schools. The program was basically implemented as proposed in terms of personnel but class size was not affected. Participating children and parents acquired and sustained positive attitudes regarding integration and education. There is some indication of progress towards normal levels of reading achievement.
