Educational Program Evaluation/Validation and Public Policy.
Sie, Maureen A.; Wills, Clarence
The Michigan Department of Education implemented a large-scale social action program through its Compensatory Education School Aid Act of SY 1971-72. Schools received $200 per pupil and were held accountable for pupil achievement. This paper describes the educational delivery systems in three urban schools, the evaluation of pupil achievement, and the state validation process. The results showed that the downward trend in achievement among inner-city students was reversed, and that promising educational practices were documented and replicated. The success of the programs has resulted in the continuation and recent large increase in funding for Michigan schools. (Author)
