The Southeast Community Education Center. Final Evaluation Report.
Erickson, Edsel L.; And Others
The Southeast Community Education Center is a nondenominational, elementary alternative school that enrolls up to 90 children on a first-come, first-served basis. It is intended to provide a community education center whereby the educational needs of minority group youngsters can be fulfilled in a true "community school." The total school program is envisioned as a model for community involvement and humanistic education for families within the community. The program evaluation is concerned with academic achievement in reading and mathematics, reduction in absenteeism, staff evaluations, student evaluations, parent evaluations, and evaluations of college educators working with the school. The findings are presented in detail. The Southeast Community Education Center clearly attained its major objectives during the 1974-75 school year. Five reasons for the center's success and five recommendations for possible development are given. (Author/IRT)
