An Assessment of Changes in Science Instruction and Science Facilities Initiated by NDEA Title III Funds Used for High School Science in Tennessee Between 1965 - 1970.
Davis, James Taylor
In this investigation, questionnaires were sent to 64 selected urban and rural high schools that were participating in the NDEA Title III science programs. The study revealed that Title III funds were responsible for the improvement of science laboratories, teaching materials and equipment, and the educational advancement of teachers. New courses had been added to the curriculum, some course offerings changed from one designated grade level to another, ecology and environmental concepts had been added to the life sciences, there were more laboratory exercises provided, and student interest and enrollment increased. It was also noted that equipment maintenance problems had increased, there was a need for securing greater safety in the laboratory, and science inventory systems needed improvement. The greatest expenditure of Title III science funds was in the area of biological sciences, with physics receiving the least. (JR)
