Compensatory Education 1970-71. Program Description and Evaluation: Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I.
California State Dept. of the Youth Authority, Sacramento.
The Compensatory Education Program for Educationally Deprived Children in the California Youth Authority was initiated in the summer of 1967, as a Title I program for delinquent children in institutions funded under Public Law 89-750 which amended P.L. 89-10. Responsibility for evaluation of ESEA programs is vested in the Educational Research Section, in the Department of Youth Authority, Division of Research and Development. The Language Development Component had objectives which varied from school to school: these included raising the vocabulary and reading comprehension achievement for wards. The Mathematics Component attempted to remediate the severely retarded mathematics achievement of wards, and was assessed using gains in the computational scale of the California Test of Basic Skills. The auxiliary services component included the Aide Training Program, Job Placement Service, Santa Clara Liaison, Nelles Typing, School Psychologists, Libraries, and Adaptive Physical Education. A very high proportion of the training activities reported in the Staff Development Component included a discussion of program development, with teaching techniques, subject matter, and administrative being the three next most frequent activities, in that order.
