Field Survey of Selected Urban Education Projects.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Urban Education.; General Learning Corp., Washington, DC.
The purpose of this field survey report is to present the actual operations of programs geared for disadvantaged residents of New York State and funded through Urban Education appropriations for 1968-1969. The descriptions attempt to provide a picture of how the programs are actually operating, the processes by which they were established, the promise they hold, and their impact on inner-city residents. Programs described are in the following areas: reading, basic skills, guidance services, staff training, bilingual instruction, human relations and sensitivity training, and cultural enrichment. Observations reported inadequacies in effecting desired community participation, coordination of programs with outside agencies and local resources, and inservice training of staff. Other criticisms and recommendations are included. (KG)
