HSPV in Retrospect.
Monaghan, Anne Coolidge
This paper reports the results of a retrospective study of the 3-year Head Start Planned Variation (HSPV) experience. The long-term residual effects of HSPV's effort to install and implement educational models in various communities are discussed with emphasis on the effects on the models and sponsors themselves. Six models were studied: Bank Street, Far West, High/Scope, and the models of the Universities of Arizona, Kansas, and Oregon. The teachers of the model programs were studied most intensively under the assumption that they would receive the strongest impact of the programs. Two strategies of study were used: teacher observation and interviews with teachers and key personnel, administrators, and some parents. In the presentation of the results concerning which components of the HSPV models persisted, the models are grouped into "academic" and "child development" categories according to their educational orientation, and the five main findings are reported and explained. Suggestions for what might be expected of models in an experiment of this scope and duration are presented. (SDH)
