Evaluation Report Project 8 Children, Orleans Parish School Board.
Ghini, Constantino; And Others
"Project 8 Children" was conducted for a three year period in three New Orleans public schools for educating diverse populations of student within a single community. At the end of that time an evaluation of project results was conducted. Operational objectives and scope of the project were continually revised as time went on. This process was healthy and accounted for the project's gradual improvement. It also prevented the establishment of baseline data for evaluation purposes. According to the evaluators, the project's main objective, as stated above, was partially reached. The achievement of results was hindered by the overall resistance to change by school personnel, conflicting priorities, personal allegiances, activities spread too thinly, and the expenditure of time, money, and effort on services that contribute little to the total student body's increase in educational improvement. Those gains which did occur were difficult to identify due to insensitive statistical instruments, inadequate testing, and the lack of a control group. (Author)
