A Three Year Summary of Hartford Project Concern (a Program of Urban-Suburban Cooperation).
This report is intended to provide new evidence dealing with the effectiveness of this educational program and should be used with data secured from other evaluation efforts. The study was not designed to demonstrate clear "cause and effect" relationships, is limited in its scope, and is not intended to be exhaustive in analyzing all factors operating in the project. The evidence from the study is considered to indicate the following: (1) Project Concern is bringing the children close to the reading levels of the overall population as this factor is measured by standardized test results; (2) Project Concern is most effective for children at the kindergarten and first grade level before reading deficits have occurred; (3) Project Concern children in the early grades who have not experienced the isolated education of inner city schools are approximately at grade level or above in reading; (4) Project Concern reading success is related to the number of years children are in the project--there is a positive relationship between the number of years in the project and the reduction of reading deficits of the group; and, (5) Project Concern children achieve more in reading than similar children remaining in the validated schools of Hartford.
