Programs for Educationally Deprived Children. ESEA Title I Evaluation Report, September 1974 - August 1975.
Turner, W. E.; And Others
Various programs listed under the categories of instructional components, supportive components, and summer activities are evaluated here. Programs under instructional components include corrective reading programs, primary-intermediate mathematics, neglected children's institutional programs, business education for delinquent children, and preschool programs. The supportive components describes the parent education program. Included in the summer activities programs are early start, neglected children's program, delinquent children's program, tuition scholarships, basic primary and corrective reading, and primary and intermediate math. Delivery of service is seen to have become more concentrated with fewer schools identified as Title I targets and with fewer programs being continued. Evaluation of performance objectives in the neglected and delinquent institutions is considered to be inconclusive because of the short length of time most pupils are institutionalized while involved in the program. Seventy-four percent met or exceeded stated objectives for reading; 77-98 percent met the objectives in mathematics; and over 96 percent in preschool program met the stated objectives. (Author/AM)
