House of the Good Shepherd, School Year 1967-68 and Summer 1968. Evaluation of ESEA Title I Project for Fiscal Year 1968 of the Baltimore City Public Schools.
Educational Research Services, Inc., White Plains, NY.
Evaluated is an educational program, funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I, as a rehabilitative school for delinquent adolescent girls in Baltimore, Maryland. Both the regular school year and the summer programs are directed toward development of ability to adjust in society. The school offers an academic curriculum as well as special emphasis on home economics and business education. Evaluation was based on interviews with staff and on the California Test of Personality administered to the girls. Findings show that the institution has "an excellent record of success" with the girls. Title I funds enabled the school to enrich its program. Test results indicate that the girls are probably more asocial than antisocial and therefore capable of change. Suggestions for improvement, most of which would involve increases in funds, are included. A policy of pre- and post-testing in areas of academic achievement and personal and social adjustment is recommended. For other evaluations in this series see UD 007 956, 007 957, and 007 959. (NH)
