A Report on the 1967-68 Program for Preschool Children and Their Parents. Research Report Series 1968-69, No. 4.
Sacramento City Unified School District, CA.
Some of the general objectives of this compensator y program were to provide educational experiences and to assess the needs of the children and their parents. During the 1967-1968 school year it comprised 23 classes situated in 14 schools and was designed to serve up to 405 pupils and 345 parents. The classes were financed by California State and U.S. Government funds. The programs for the children were basic preschool programs stressing language development, experience building, and readiness activities. The programs for the parents stressed child growth and development, nutrition, health, preschool education, and the nature, availability, and use of community resources. Each class employed a work experience aide and a teacher aide from the neighborhood. Data were collected from a kindergarten teacher assessment of pupil readiness and the effects of compensatory programs on incoming kindergarten pupils. The Caldwell Preschool Inventory and the Slosson Intelligence Test were administered to 100 pupils in the fall and to 77 available for retesting in the spring. A field trip program report, parent questionnaire, teacher questionnaire, and reports from the staff members completed the data available. About half of this report is a detailed account of the "findings," but no general conclusions are listed. (NT)
