Title I in Ohio: 16th Annual Evaluation, Title I, Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Fiscal 1981.
Young, Eileen, Ed.
This report summarizes activities provided in Ohio through Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act during fiscal year 1981, and provides basic statistics and information on participation trends, instructional impact, expenditure and staffing patterns, parent involvement, and 5 year trends. The programs funded include supplemental instruction for educationally disadvantaged children, special educational programs for migrant children, and supplementary services for handicapped, neglected, and delinquent children. Evaluation data indicate: that students in the Title I basic programs are making significant achievement gains in reading and mathematics; that the migrant education programs have helped younger migrant children to improve their basic skills and provided subject area instruction and vocational training for older students; that handicapped students in the program are provided with diverse instructional activities and services; and that supplementary instruction for delinquent and neglected children in State facilities has resulted in student gains in reading and mathematics. Some reasons for the success of Title I in Ohio are outlined, and recommendations for effective provision of future services are presented. The role of the State in providing and administering Title I services is briefly described. (Author/MJL)
