Parent Leadership Training Project, October 1, 1970-September 30, 1972. Independent Evaluator's Report.
Arter, Rhetta M.
The Parent Leadership Training Project (PLTP) through Adult Basic Education was established as a two-year demonstration project designed to increase the reading skills of adults (16 and over) through a language-experience approach, using topics selected by the participants. The independent project evaluation covers the entire operational period (Oct. 1, 1970-Sept. 30, 1972) and discusses participant characteristics, total program, program accomplishments, and the three satellite centers. The section discussing PLTP participant characteristics consists of 17 charts. The next section looks at the accomplishments of the 609 participants in terms of their academic growth and reading achievements in light of the first and second year program objectives. In the final section, the three satellite centers in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan (Harlem Center) are closely evaluated through detailed program descriptions of such program features as: reading growth, progress lines, language experiences, and participant characteristics. Each center's program was geared to the type of participant in the area. An important factor noted in each center was the significant growth in the participants' reading ability achievements. (BP)
