Report on ESEA Title I Evaluation for 1971-72.
Drane, Jeanne G., Ed.
This document includes summaries of the annual evaluations of the five major programs in St. Louis funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act. The general purposes of the Reading Improvement Teams program were to improve the reading skills of the children with the greatest reading problems in the Title I schools and to broaden and improve the materials and techniques used for teaching reading by the classroom teachers in the program. The Rooms of Fifteen program had three general purposes: (1) to improve the basic academic skills of faltering elementary students to the point where they can succeed in a regular classroom; (2) to improve student attendance; and, (3) to influence children toward growth in self-confidence and toward overcoming feelings of defeat and frustration. The Title I Lincoln High School was designed to intervene in the problems of the inner city student who has trouble adjusting to school. The South Grand Work-Study High School was designed to recruit dropout-prone students in the Title I schools and influence them to stay in school and graduate through a program of job training and services. The Nonpublic Schools program has two general purposes: to improve the basic academic skills of Title I eligible children, and to provide inservice training and facilities to Title I teachers in nonpublic schools.
