TITLE III, ESEA Impact Study.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.; Kansas Univ., Lawrence. Bureau of Educational Research and Services.
This paper reports a study that (1) attempted to determine the degree to which Title III ESEA programs, begun under Federal funding, have been continued since the discontinuance of Federal aid; and (2) investigated the educational changes brought about by the programs. The study focused on changes in school district programs, resources, and curriculum; no investigation was made of the effects of the study on learning, staff development, or student teaching attitudes. Study findings from interviews of project directors, district superintendents, and/or school board members of 21 projects revealed that 10 projects claimed at least a 90 percent continuation of activities. The report concludes that most of the programs have brought about changes in the kind or the level of services provided by the school, the availability of instructional materials and equipment, the instructional methods being used in the school, the curriculum, the level of faculty training, or various combinations thereof.
