Outside Educational Evaluation of the Emergency School Assistance Program. Interim Report.
RMC Research Corp., Arlington, VA.
This progress report describes study objectives, research design, field survey activities, and analysis plans for the evaluation of the Emergency School Assistance Program (ESAP), a federal program to aid local educational agencies in bringing about racial desegregation of their public school systems. A need for evaluation is explained in terms of gathering information and guidelines for policy decisions about ESAP, of providing inputs to the legislative process, and of meeting the requirements established by ESAP for an independent evaluation. After a descriptive introductory section, subsequent chapters present the development of the study effort through December 1970. Among the topics covered are a discussion of the Phase I evaluation and data collection plans, an analysis plan for Phase I survey data, the Phase II effort, current (1970) status, and evaluation plans. Tabulations that are part of Phase I analysis plan and a draft of a questionnaire to be mailed to the Bi-Racial ESAP Advisory Committee are contained in the appendixes. (AM)
