Durga, Ram; And Others
This evaluation report of the Newark (New Jersey) School District's ESEA Title I program examines its eight major components as well as student performance in noncognitive areas and parental involvement. Included among the program components are the Language Experience Program (LEP), Computational Skills Project (CSP), Program for English Proficiency (PEP), Pre-kindergarten/Kindergarten Program, Special Education, Education Center for Youth, Project LINK, and Neglected and Delinquent Student Services. Descriptions of the evaluation models used, the Metropolitan Achievement Test, statistical data for both cognitive and noncognitive areas, and a glossary of terms are appended. A summary of findings for each program component is included in the introduction. It was reported that noncognitive objectives in general were not achieved. Parent Participation was found to be restricted to particular program events with considerable differences in parent involvement between public and private schools. (JCD)
