An Evaluation of the State Urban Education Programs, Community School District 27, New York City Board of Education. Final Report.
Simon, Alan J.; And Others
This evaluation deals with three programs funded under the 1969 New York State Urban Education Program. The three objectives of the Diagnostic Reading Program were as follows: (1) to raise the reading level by one grade of 80 percent of those children in the second grade who were below reading level; (2) to raise the reading level of one-half grade of 80 percent of those children in the fifth or sixth grade who were below reading level; and, (3) to develop reading skills and knowledge of technique in the use of materials on the part of 80 percent of the paraprofessionals, and that a similar percentage of the paraprofessionals should show a significant positive difference in attitude toward their jobs. Operation Search, which has just completed its second year of operation, attempts to raise the levels of educational and vocational aspiration and scholastic achievement for disadvantaged youth. The program operates in four junior high schools and three elementary schools. About 450 students are intensively involved in the program and receive all of its services. The Aerospace Education Resource Center is designed to improve the aspirational level of the pupils, to provide a supplementary educational experience, to motivate students in their learning attitudes towards reading, mathematics, and science, and also to provide career information in the aerospace industry.
