Transferring Educational Success: Is the ESEA Title IV-C Model More Cost Effective Than the Title III Model in New York State?
Egelston, Richard L.
New York state established several types of grants to improve local educational practice, and three are examined in this report: Developer grants, Demonstrator grants, and Replicator grants. Policy evaluation performed at the level of a grants administration agency requires many types of data collection and analysis. This study compares the relative effectiveness of grants for the development of projects with grants for adoption of projects by using the dependent variable of grant award amount. The question of whether it was more efficient to improve local educational practice by awarding only Developer grants (the ESEA Title III model) or by awarding grants for Demonstration and Replication (the ESEA Title IV-C model) was specifically addressed. Discussion of the influences on program administration and on the grant awards over the past five years are provided. An indication of the necessity to continue Developer grants along with grants for adoption is included. (Author/GK)
