Permanence of the Impact of Intervention Components of Compensatory Education Programs.
Brown, Edward K.
Previous studies have reported that disadvantaged children tend to loose the skills and abilities they had acquired in special and/or intervention programs when they are placed in education settings which do not support their needs. Since the 1970 census data tended to indicate that the pupil composition of the schools had changed, it became important to determine (1) whether the impact of the intervention components which had been successful were still intact and (2) whether they were still producing the desired results. If the composition of the schools had changed, did the current allocation decisions address the needs of the pupils and schools. A demographic analysis was made of the 1970 census data to determine the characteristics of the pupil populations in the elementary schools. A systematic review was made of the kinds of service-inputs of each of the elementary schools reviewed currently and in 1972. Through a component analysis procedure, descriptions of the summative or aggregate inputs of the respective projects formed were developed. Comparisons between the current and 1972 service-inputs were made to determine whether the kinds of services received currently differed from those received in 1972. The reading performance scores of the children in the respective elementary schools were used. The data was from the spring 1974 administration of the California Achievement Test. (Author/JM)
