Programs for the Disadvantaged in Texas Funded Under Title I, ESEA. Annual Report, 1970-71.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
Data were gathered from 22 large Texas school districts (over 17,000 in average daily attendance) and 221 medium districts to assess school participation in federally supported programs designed to assist the advancement of educationally disadvantaged children. In this report, the data gathered from the sample school districts are arranged into 8 divisions: participants in programs for the disadvantaged, pupil personnel services for the disadvantaged, instructional programs for the disadvantaged, test data from the programs, personnel serving in the programs, personnel development, school dropout information involving the disadvantaged, and 1969-70 graduate follow-up. Interspersed with the data displays are remarks which transmit findings derived during the treatment of the data and which may not be apparent in the presentation. Some specific findings and conclusions follow: (1) medium districts were able to identify the students most in need of services and to provide the needed services; (2) Title I funds are insufficient to meet the needs of large districts; (3) the compensatory programs either did not have sufficient appeal to hold the disadvantaged student between the eighth and ninth grades and the ninth and tenth grades or less emphasis was placed on the programs at this stage of his progress; and (4) a need exists to improve the programs for counseling or interviewing students prior to leaving school.
