Social Work Education for Economically Disadvantaged Groups in Texas. Final Report, July 1, 1970 - August 31, 1973.
The evaluation report of Texas graduate schools of social work has 6 criteria: (1) an increase in the percentage of Blacks and Mexican Americans in schools; (2) a full utilization of the scholarships under these programs; (3) development of a statewide recruitment system; (4) relevant curriculum changes; (5) retention of graduates from the programs, as social workers in Texas and the Southwest; and (6) student follow-up after graduation. Minorities in the program ranged from 55 (1968-69)-110 (1972-73) students. Each criteria is evaluated and summarized. For the recruitment and retention of minority students, conclusions include that: (1) the enrollment of minority group students increased and all stipends were awarded; and (2) there was a low attrition rate among students recruited into the programs. Report contents are: (1) introduction; (2) summary and conclusions; (3) analysis and evaluation; (4) evaluation component; and (5) final comments and recommendations. The appendixes, which comprise the majority of the document, give background information for report findings. (FF)
