Preparation of Publications on Progress in Compensatory Education and Desegregation Programs. Final Report.
Gordon, Edmund W.; Brownell, Carolyn Ralston
In efforts at improving the quality of education and at justifying expenditures for compensatory education and school desegregation, we are increasingly dependent upon the data of evaluative research. Yet the data from many of these evaluation efforts conducted over the past 12 years are confused and inconclusive. In an effort at gaining a better understanding of some of these programs, this project was directed at describing selected programs thought to be exemplary of quality, progress, trends, or problems in compensatory education and school desegregation. Because of the criteria utilized and since major problems of school desegregation are quite recent, we found more organized efforts at compensatory education than fully developed programs of school desegregation. This report thus includes detailed descriptions of two more desegregation programs and seven compensatory education programs which were studied intensively but were not thought by our staff to merit exemplary status designation. This report is organized into four sections, including procedures, results, conclusions, and appendices. Since the purpose of this project was to produce brochures illustrative of exemplary programs, the major products of the study are Appendices C and D. (Author/JM)
