The Title I, ESEA Program in Minneapolis 1972-73: An Evaluation.
Minneapolis Public Schools, Minn. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
This deals with impact of Minneapolis Title I, Elementary Secondary Education Act, funded programs on children's achievement. In Minneapolis, Target schools are those schools that have a higher percentage of low income/Aid to Families of Dependent Children (AFDC)/foster children than the city as a whole. In Minneapolis in 1972-73, there were 40 Target schools: 25 public elementary schools, five public junior high schools, three public senior high schools, and seven parochial schools. The Minneapolis plan for use of Title I funds during 1972-73 emphasized helping children in elementary schools improve their reading and math skills. Title I funds were used to provide the same basic reading and math services for all Target schools. Use of these centralized services helped overcome the problem of student mobility, made development and acquisition of educational materials more economical, and allowed for a coordinated in-service teacher training program. All Target elementary schools benefitted from the services of the Primary Reading Team, Intermediate Reading Team, Title I Math Team, Instructional Materials Center and Cassette Program, and many used the services of the Basic Skill Centers. Secondary Target schools received services from the Mathematics Basic Skills Development Project, the Job Corps Reading Project, the Mobile Learning Centers and the Basic Skill Centers. Each Target school faculty designed a program for use in its own building during 1972-73. (Author/JM)
