Schools Council Research and Development Project in Compensatory Education, Swansea (Wales).
On the first of November, 1967 a Schools Council research and development project in Compensatory Education which will last for three-and-one-half years, was set up in the Department of Education of the University College of Swansea, Wales. The main aims of the project were: to provide screening techniques to enable children in need of compensatory education to be identified at an early age; to make longitudinal studies of infant school children in deprived areas, with particular reference to their emotional development and response to schooling; and, to develop teaching programs involving materials in a variety of media, which may be used to help culturally deprived children at the infant school age. The project was concerned with children in the four to eight years' age range, and the research team was to work in several areas of England and Wales. Teacher groups and permanent displays of materials were to be organized. (Author/JM)
