Title I ESEA in Institutions for Neglected and Delinquent Children.
Hughes, John F.
The needs and deficiencies of institutions for neglected and delinquent children are elaborated. Limited staff and resources preclude the provision of the special instruction and services needed for this youthful population. This report explains the 1966 Title I amendment, under which children living in state and local institutions became eligible for improved counseling services, testing programs and instructional materials. An overview of many of the resultant projects is provided. Most were 10 week summer projects which, for a variety of reasons, were difficult to evaluate. In general, accomplishments are stated to have reached beyoud academic gains, though the chief accomplishment was raising the level of educational programs in the participating institutions. Selected reviews of some of the projects are quite explicit and point up both their diversity and innovativeness. (TL)
