Annual Evaluation Report, 1970-71. Early Childhood Education Learning System, Fort Worth Central Cities Project.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
This is the evaluation report of the third year of operation, 1970-71, of the Fort Worth Central Cities Project, which was initiated in 1968-69 to provide structural preschool experiences for two- to five-year-old children from an economically deprived area in the Fort Worth inner city. The Project was a joint effort of the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory and the Fort Worth Central Cities staff. Evaluation results indicate that the Project was successful in preparing economically disadvantaged children to enter first grade on an equal footing with their more advantaged agemates, and to experience success in their first experience with formal schooling. The report contains a description of the program and its objectives, the evaluation design, the comparison groups, the hypotheses to be tested, and the results of the evaluation (including an evaluation of special education and self-concept). There are numerous tables and figures throughout the report. (Authors/SB)
