Open Enrollment: Services to Children in Receiving Elementary, Intermediate and Junior High Schools, and Academic High Schools. Evaluation of ESEA Title I Projects in New York City, 1968-69.
Stewart, Colleen; And Others
The Open Enrollment (OE) Program of New York City allows parents of minority group children the option to transfer their children to predominantly white schools. However, the program also includes students who were transferred to such schools through a Board of Education mandate. The objectives of this program are to improve personal competency levels and self image, to raise academic and achievement levels, and to provide the OE retarded readers with increased diagnostic and corrective services. The emphasis of this evaluation report is on a quantitative and qualitative assessment of additional personnel and services, corrective reading and guidance services, and successful activities as determined by principals and district superintendents. Questionnaires, personal interviews, and observations were used in the evaluation. Appendixes include descriptions of district projects and goals, and copies of questionnaires and interview guides used. (KG)
