Afternoon Remedial and Enrichment Program, Buffalo, New York. Elementary Program in Compensatory Education, 2.

This afternoon remedial and enrichment program was offered to inner-city low income children (grades 3-8). About 75 percent of the children were black, 20 percent white and 5 percent Puerto Rican. Remedial instruction was offered in reading and mathematics. Average class size was six pupils; these small groups allowed for better diagnosis of needs and individualized instruction. Enrichment teachers taught classes in art, music, industrial arts, and physical education. Children's gains were measured by the California Reading Test and the California Arithmetic Test (Forms W and X) in 1966-67. No test data were collected in 1967-68 and 1968-69. Test scores for 1966-67 showed, however, that pupils achieved a mean gain of five months in reading achievement and six months in arithmetic during the five months between testings. (KG)
