Early Childhood Education Program--Grades Pre-K-K, FY '80. Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I. Evaluation Report, 1979-80.
Baltimore City Public Schools, MD.
Evaluation results of 1979-80 compensatory education programs for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten children in 75 Baltimore, Maryland public and private schools are presented in this report. The program provided early learning experiences in reading, mathematics, and language for educationally disadvantaged 3-, 4-, and 5-year olds to enhance their future achievement in the basic skills. Pre-kindergarten children in the public schools demonstrated pretest to posttest gains on the Boehm Test of Basic Concepts, which evaluates reading, language, and mathematics skills, and showed that they had met program objectives. Public school kindergarten pupils also demonstrated gains in reading and mathematics. Non-public school kindergarten pupils showed gains in language, while pre-kindergarteners were not given the posttest. The program also provided health services for eligible children. The report includes detailed tables on program objectives and achievement of objectives, test results, number and types of program participants, degree of parent participation, number and types of staff involved, and the extent and kinds of health services provided.
