Title I in Georgia: Annual Evaluation Report 1973-74.
Moore, Sarah H.; White, Linda Ann
This evaluation report identifies recent trends of Title I and examines their cost. The question said to be addressed is whether Title I financed activities in Georgia have any positive effect on the learning outcomes of participating children. Chapters deal with basic statistics for FY 74, pupil participation, expenditures, impact on achievement, analysis of objectives, other facets, exemplary programs, summary, and recommendations. Thesummary section is discussed in terms of participation, expenditures, and evaluation. Recommendations include the following: that Title I in Georgia be continued, that the concentration on the improvement of basic skills for students be increased, that local educational agencies strive for more formal, more formative evaluation efforts, and that compensatory aid to education be continued on the basis of three-year funding segments rather than the present one-year segment. More system-oriented approaches that define areas of student needs are seen to be the trend. (Author/AM)
