Final Report for Year III of the Atlanta Career Opportunities Program, 1972-73.
Taylor, Myrtice M.; And Others
The report, covering the period from June 12, 1972 through June 12, 1973, concerns the academic achievement and self-concept of pupils taught by participants in the Federally funded Career Opportunities Program (COP), the participants' professional growth, career progress, and recruitment classification, and the organizational climate and operational changes. The general conclusions were that the program is meeting the needs of the participants and is contributing to the academic growth of pupils in reading. The participants, in general, were able to meet academic standards set by cooperating institutions. The purpose of COP is to provide opportunities for adults from low-income areas to pursue careers of useful service in education and to improve the educational opportunities of pupils living in deprived areas. In Atlanta, COP-taught pupils' average reading gain was greater than one month per month of instruction. The academic performance of COP participants indicated the success of their training. COP participants have become more involved in instructional activities and placement in advanced positions took place according to the number of positions available. The effect of COP participants upon the self-concepts of pupils was not reflected in instrument scores. (Correspondence from COP graduates is included in the report appendix.) (AG)
