An Evaluation of the Community Education Demonstration Projects.
Wynne, Ronald D.
The report summarizes a six-month evaluation (July-December 1967) of 11 community education projects funded by the Office of Economic Opportunity. Major focus is on eight projects which comprised a special series of Section 207 Community Education Demonstration Projects--Appalachian Volunteers, Inc., the Columbia College Citizenship Council efforts through the Harlem Educational Project and the Program to Activate Community Talent, Mobilization for Youth, the Neighborhood House Tutorial Program, Ozarka Work-Study Project, Philadelphia Tutorial Project, the project of the Raleigh County Community Action Association, and Youth Educational Services, Inc. Three other projects--Northeastern University Master Tutor Training Program, Northern Educational Services, Inc., and the Tuskegee Institute Community Education Program--were suggested for evaluation because of their similarity to the special series. Most followed at least one of three general strategies: using outside or indigenous tutors to help academically deficient children; developing educational activities that complement efforts of local school systems; and attempting to organize poor people to bring pressure for quality public services and economic improvement.
