Project to Improve Equality of Educational Opportunities in Redlands, School Year 1969-70. Title IV Evaluation.
Serrano, Tirso G.
This Title IV, Civil Rights Act evaluation of Projects to Improve Equality of Educational Opportunities in Redlands, school year 1969-1970, concludes that the outcomes of a year of desegregated education are as follows. Seventy percent of the parents said that their children are more interested in school and are receiving a better education today. Although the children say that they enjoy school, some of them feel that in arithmetic and reading skills they do not compare with the other students. Teachers concur with the students that reading and arithmetic are areas of difficulty. The need for special programs is a subject of contention among teachers. Students like to ride the bus, but are somewhat uncertain as to whether they want to next year. Fair treatment by students and teachers was not an issue, but "different treatment" was. More research into the meaning of "different treatment" is needed. Though home-school cooperation exists, both teachers and parents desire more opportunities to communicate. More teacher home visits are looked forward to. A program of integration from kindergarten through twelfth grade, which will improve the quality of education during this continuing period of transition, is being planned. (Author/JM)
