A No-Fail Attitude in an Inner-City School: W. H. Crogman Elementary School, 1972-73. Research and Development Report, Vol. 7, No. 45, April 1974.
Plankenhorn, Andrew
W. H. Crogman Elementary School primarily served black low-income residents. Its program's objectives were: (1) To develop the responsibility within the pupil for his own learning. (2) To have pupils assume leadership roles. (3) To develop academic achievement for each pupil. The primary goal was to create a no-fail attitude among the pupils. The Comprehensive Instructional Program, one of several supportive projects, focused on diagnostic teaching of reading grades 1-3. The Career Opportunities Program was a training program for selected paraprofessionals. Seventy pupils took part in the English-Reading program, funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, with a staff of one lead teacher and three aides. The Health-Medical Service, also funded under Title I, was to serve seven children by providing corrective visual and hearing aids. Title IV-A of the Elementary Secondary Education Act provided funds for a preschool unit for 20 children and an extended day program for 40 children. The Education Professions Development Act was a cooperative effort of the Atlanta Public School System and the Atlanta University. The goal of the project was to provide the classroom teachers with the techniques and strategies of specialized education through special training. (Author/JM)
