Career Awareness and Resource Education Program for Hispanic Bilingual High School Students (Project Care). 1989-90 Final Evaluation Report.
This evaluation of the 1989-90 Career Awareness and Resource Education Program for Hispanic Bilingual High School Students (Project CARE) in New York City found that the program met most of its objectives, but recommended that the unrealistic staff development objective be revised. Project CARE, funded under Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, provides the following services to at-risk Spanish-speaking limited-English-proficient (LEP) students: (1) English as a Second Language (ESL); (2) native language arts (NLA); (3) bilingual mathematics, science, and social studies; and (4) career counseling. The project also offered ESL instruction for parents and offered staff the opportunity to attend workshops and college courses. Evaluation information included student performance on the Language Assessment Battery (LAB) and attendance and dropout rates. The following conclusions are presented: (1) the project met its objectives in ESL, attendance, career advisement, guest speakers, curriculum development, and parental involvement; (2) the project partially met its dropout prevention objective; (3) the project did not meet its content area objective due to the participants' low native-language literacy; and (4) the project did not meet its unrealistically high objective for staff attendance at college courses. Statistical data are presented in three tables. (FMW)
