Upward Bound; A Study of Impact on the Secondary School and the Community.
Greenleigh Associates, Inc., New York, NY.
This report contains an assessment of the impact of Upward Bound programs on secondary schools and communities. The findings are based on a systematic study and analysis of the relationships observed among the universities, secondary schools, and communities involved in Upward Bound. The study was carried out in 16 selected cities across the nation to evaluate a variety of different programs in an attempt to determine the effect Upward Bound has had nationally. The recommendations in this report are aimed at providing constructive guidelines for the improvement of the program. This study indicates that Upward Bound has had a significant impact on the student participants, but has had a minimal effect on the internal operations of the secondary schools, the attitudes of the faculties, and the reactions of the local communities. Many aspects of the administration and operation of local programs need improvement. The public relations role of local project directors should be broadened. Above all, it is essential that the program be expanded to include larger numbers of high school students if any tangential effect is to be realized. (Author/KJ)
