Continuance and Transience among Teachers and Pupils in the Follow Through Program in Philadelphia, 1968-1972.
Philadelphia School District, PA. Office of Research and Evaluation.
A study based on an individual tracking design for both teachers and pupils was conducted. It reports teacher and pupil continuance and transience data for each of the seven models as well as for the total program. A review of relevant literature was conducted. Four sources of information were used to pinpoint the total Follow Through pupil population: Fall rosters, Spring rosters, an April listing of all pupils present, and Individual Pupil Cumulative Record Cards. Teacher C-T data were tabulated to show the number and percentage of teachers remaining in the program in each grade for each model and then for the total program. A cumulative analysis program also was written to follow all children in the program as they progressed through succeeding years. This study accounted for 309 teachers in the total program over the first four years of Follow Through in Philadelphia. The continuance rate favors the upward progression of the program through grades. More than 70% of children enrolled have continued through 1972. Results are broken down in tabular form. (CK)
