Project ABLE is a series of demonstration educational programs initiated in 1961 for the purpose of identifying and encouraging potential abilities among pupils from culturally deprived groups and low socioeconomic backgrounds. The word ABLE was chosen to indicate a belief that, given adequate resources, schools are ABLE to devise educational procedures which insure equality of educational opportunity for all pupils including those identified as "disadvantaged." In order to participate and receive financial support from state funds, school systems in Cooperation with the Project Unit of the Division of Pupil Personnel Services developed demonstration programs to meet identified educational needs at the local level. A wide variety of techniques with observable positive results were utilized by the participating school districts. (Author)
