ESEA Title I Evaluation Report. Programs for Educationally Deprived Children, September, 1969-August, 1970. Summer School Programs, June 1970-August, 1970.
Wichita Unified School District 259, KS.
This is the evaluation report of the fourth year of ESEA Title I programs in Wichita, Kansas called Project SPEEDY (Special Programs to Enhance the Education of Disadvantaged Youth). While the major thrust was in the area of corrective reading and other language development programs, other instructional offerings included mathematics, music, art, and business education. A number of other services and supplementary programs were also offered. Problems encountered included the governmental policy of concentration of funds on fewer recipients, which was made more complicated by busing policies to further integration efforts. Pupils showed improvement in reading vocabulary and comprehension. A very high percentage of pupils with attendance problems came from families with lower educational achievement. Enrichment was also provided during summer programs. (Author/DM)
