Implementation of Planned Variation in Head Start. I. Review and Summary of the Stanford Research Institute Interim Report: First Year of Evaluation.
Bissell, Joan S.
This pamphlet summarizes the interim report of the Head Start Planned Variation Study although information from other sources is included. During the pilot phase (1969-1970) eight distinct approaches to preschool education were analyzed with regard to the nature and extent of implementation of early education models and program effects. The first group of findings deals with differences in ease of implementation in new locations and with external factors which facilitate implementation. The second group concerns the nature of experiences provided to children by preschools based on different educational philosophies and methods. The third set of findings concerns the effects of preschool programs on children and their families. The preliminary and tentative nature of all of these findings is stressed because they are based on only the first year of a 3-year program of evaluation. The complete interim report is available as PS 004 916. (WY)
