Crawley, Nora S.; Evans, Dale
The purpose of this report is to provide data on the educational program at E. R. Carter Elementary School with a focus on several specific programs. Carter is located in close proximity to downtown Atlanta. Its pupil population was entirely Negro while the faculty itself was well integrated. The economic level was generally low. The purpose of the English-Reading Program, funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, was to provide remedial reading instruction for children who were identified as "slow learners" by standardized tests and by teacher observation and judgment. Results from the Comprehensive Instructional Program tests and other tests were used as criteria for grouping the children for the type of instruction prescribed for each child. The Youth-Tutoring-Youth Program involved 10 tutors and 20 tutees. The tutors were students from a nearby high school. The tutees were students who were enrolled as slow learners and who were enrolled in Title I English-Reading classes at Carter. The Tutor-Buddy or Experience Approach in Reading was a Title I program established for Title I pupils to tutor Trainable Mentally Retarded children. The Title IV-A Child Development Center, funded under the 1967 Amendment of the Social Security Program, had approximately 40 children. (Author/JM)
