Annual Report of Programs for the Disadvantaged in Texas, ESEA, Title I, 1973-74.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Evaluation.
During 1974 approximately 13 percent of the 2.8 million students enrolled in Texas schools represented a concentrated effort to serve educationally disadvantaged pupils with the greatest needs on campuses eligible for Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I funds. Of these funds, 75 percent was expended for instructional activities with reading receiving the largest amount. Although Federal funds received by Texas were not fully adequate to meet all diagnosed needs of educationally disadvantaged students, programs funded under ESEA Title I continued to have an impact on the instruction and achievement of those students served. This impact was revealed by the achievement gains of participating students. In the larger districts (those with an average daily attendance (ADA) of 35,000 or more), 62 percent of the students in reading and 56 percent of those in mathematics programs showed gains equal to or greater than those expected of the general population. In the smaller districts (those with less than 35,000 ADA), 56 percent of the students in reading programs and 52 percent of those in mathematics programs showed gains equal to or greater than 1.0 month per month of instruction. This 1973-74 annual report provides tabular information on the participants, instructional activities, pupil services, effectiveness of the reading and mathematics programs, summer programs, and programs operated in nonpublic schools.
