Title III, ESEA: The Schools of Mississippi. An Impact Study.
Mississippi State Dept. of Education, Jackson. Div. of Instruction.
To ascertain whether Title III, 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, had affected the educational programs of the public schools in Mississippi, only that data which dealt directly with the implementation and operation of a project were utilized as sources of information. Included in the data sources were the initial proposals submitted for funding, continuation requests, end of project reports, on-site evaluation reports, and a survey sent to each project. The latter was a questionnaire involving these areas: continuation of activities, adoption of project by other schools, initiation of new or different techniques into the school system, utilization of instructional materials developed within the project, and contribution of Title III to the educational program in Mississippi. From the information presented in reports from the different projects, treated individually in the text of the document, there seemed to be this consensus: Title III projects have made a difference in the educational programs of the public schools. In some of the schools the Title III project represented the first time certain techniques and/or activities had been implemented in Mississippi. Opportunities for experimentation and exploration, for learning new techniques, and for making indepth studies were considered as valuable adjuncts of the Title III program. (Author/JM)
