Final Report of the Evaluation of the 1970-1971 Improving Instruction and Services in Schools for Socially Maladjusted Children. ESEA Title I.
The Title I program in Schools for Socially Maladjusted and Emotionally Disturbed Pupils, funded under the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, is a federally supported enrichment program which provides library services, art, science, health education, remedial reading, remedial mathematics, instructional materials, curriculum improvement, in-service teacher training, and guidance services for 2429 elementary and secondary students. No single program exists but rather different fund allocation patterns are noted over the 17 participating schools. The evaluation was designed to collect data relevant to program objectives. Conducting the evaluation involved interviewing all Title I funded personnel and making on-site observations. Achievement, attitudinal, and demographic data was obtained from a random sample of 510 students. A group of 50 parents was also interviewed to determine their perceptions of child's progress and orientation toward school. Among the conclusions reached are the following: (1) Title I funded services are generally a necessary part of the current program in the schools surveyed. (2) The impact of the program on academic achievement is not as great as anticipated in the program objectives. Data suggest a limited program impact on academic achievement. (Author/JM)
