Title I in Ohio: Third Annual Evaluation of Title I (ESEA), Fiscal Year 1968.
Cox, Arlie E.; And Others
This report evaluates the participation of nearly all public school districts in Ohio in ESEA Title I programs. The evaluation aims to provide a basis for determining whether programs are to be modified, intensified or shifted in terms of objectives and activities. The report focuses on: the size, scope and effectiveness of all Title I programs; data and observations on eight primary instructional service areas, or program categories; communications skills, the area involving the most students and the most money; mathematics/science area; and, data on preschool education, pupil personnel services, health education/services, arts and humanities, vocational skills, and special education. The major findings are that: many participants are improving their academic abilities; the attitude and motivation of many participants for doing school-type activities have reportedly improved; programs concentrated in the elementary grades (particularly grades 1-3) are more often successful than those spread from K-12; and, that when teachers and teacher aides are provided in-depth inservice training, a program is likely to have a positive impact. Recommendations based on these findings are also included. For Title I evaluation in Ohio during fiscal year 1968, see ED 016 705. (RJ)
