Title I in Georgia: Annual Evaluation Report, FY 1972/73.
Moore, Sarah H.; Weiss, Mark H.
Title I programming emphasis in Georgia is increasingly oriented toward basic skills. Fifty-eight percent of the total "participation units" were engaged in English reading and mathematics activities. No other activity or service received as much as 8 percent of the participation total. English reading activities accounted for 56.5 percent of Title I expenditures; preschool activities, 12.8 percent; and mathematics, 13.2 percent, totalling 82.5 percent among them. No other activity or service received as much as 3 percent of total expenditures. Preschool activities received the highest concentration of financial effort. Local Educational Agency (LEA) attempts at evaluating Title I programs varied widely in quality. On the basis of local perceptions of success expressed on a four point scale, 85 percent of all activities/services were considered successful or very successful. The average expenditure of funds per participant tended to rise according to LEA perceptions of success. English/speech activities received the highest success rating; media was rated second; and kindergarten/preschool was rated third. Beyond such basic descriptive statistical data, there is evidence of effective, innovative programming efforts. (Author/JM)
