Early School Admissions Program: 1969-70 Evaluation.
Ellinwood, Beverly W.
During the 1969-70 school year, the Early School Admissions Program (ESAP) for 4-year-old disadvantaged pupils was offered in 22 Baltimore City Public Schools. Each center had both a morning and an afternoon session enrolling different children. The overall goal of the ESAP was to improve the disadvantaged pupil's ability to learn, to provide comprehensive services which would promote learning to assure attention to the total development of the pupils and to involve ESAP parents in determining educational opportunities for their children and in reinforcing each pupil's learning experiences at home. Since there was no standard type of control group available, ESAP and non-ESAP pupils were examined in Kindergarten and Grade 1. Data presented in this evaluation substantiate the fact that ESAP pupils in Kindergarten and in Grade One performed at significantly higher levels than did non-ESAP pupils. Recommendations are made for the improvement of future ESAP programs. (Author/MK)
