The major thrust of 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I, or Project SPEEDY (Special Programs to Enhance the Education of Disadvantaged Youth), has been in the area of corrective reading and other programs designed to promote language development. While the emphasis of federal programs has been to concentrate funds on fewer recipients, the implementation of such a policy has been made increasingly difficult by the policy of bussing pupils throughout the system. Title I services were extended to 74 elementary schools and three junior high schools. Title I services made available to pupils in "Extended Service" schools consisted of corrective reading instruction, mathematics instruction, and supportive services. In addition to the instructional activities mentioned above, other instructional programs were: Business Education for Delinquent Children, Neglected Children's programs, and Pre-School programs. Service activities were: Supplementary Counseling, Supplementary Health, and Family Social Services and Attendance. Also a broad range of similar activities was conducted during June and July as a part of the Title I summer school. A total of 4,292 public and 243 nonpublic children participated in all phases of Title I. Sixty-two percent of the pupils achieved at least one month's gain per month of instruction on the Gates-MacGinitie Vocabulary Test. (Author/JM)
