The Effects of Discontinuing Compensatory-Education Services. Technical Report #11 from the Study of the Sustaining Effects of Compensatory Education on Basic Skills.
Kenoyer, Charles E.; And Others
This report examines the effects of discontinuing Compensatory Education (CE) services. Three reasons for discontinuation of services are identified: (1) about 60 percent of the students were no longer qualified due to high achievement; (2) 25 percent of the programs lost funding; and (3) the remaining percentage reflected promotion of students to grades which had no CE programs. Chapter one provides information on reading and math programs, and on achievement levels of students according to their relationship to CE and according to why their services were discontinued. Chapter two assesses the educational services offered to students following termination of CE. Achievement growth after termination of CE is analyzed in chapter three. Finally, chapter four interprets the findings on achievement growth. Four appendices provide supplementary data for each of the chapters. (Author/ML)
