Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title III in Massachusetts/ an Evaluation. A Study of Variables Related to Success, Continuation, and Dissemination of Title III Projects.
Denham, Carolyn H.
This publication represents a major attempt by the Massachusetts Department of Education to involve itself in what educators call the "change process" -- using research to help develop solutions to educational problems, and disseminating results to facilitate adoption of those solutions by many schools. Title III provides federal funds in periodic grants to local schools to stimulate the development of creative solutions to educational problems. Each Title III project in Massachusetts is responsible for evaluating the success of its stated objectives and for disseminating that information. This study was undertaken to provide an overview of the change process and account for its successes and failures. It affords administrators a statewide perspective on their own rate of change, and suggests new priorities for the Department's staff as well. (Author)
