Frerichs, Allen H.
The Urban Leadership Program, funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, was carried out among sixth graders at the Albert Einstein School in Chicago, Illinois. The primary purpose of the program was to develop skills and competence to prepare participants for survival and success in a large urban environment. A secondary purpose was to break down focuses on 1975-76, the second year of the program's operation, and include: (1) a description of the program, its purposes, organization, students, instructional activities and evaluation procedures; (2) an analysis of program objectives; (3) data on the extent to which the program is meeting expectations; (4) a summary of the effects that the program has had on the school, the immediate community and city; and (5) a summation of findings, conclusions and recommendations. Appended to the report are several evaluation instruments, including a school attitude inventory, urban experience inventory, self esteem inventory, comprehensive post-program examinations, and a questionnaire administered to parents or community members who served as resource advisors.
