What Makes Innovation Work in Massachusetts? A Study of ESEA Title III. Publication 8275.
Widmer, Jeanne L.
This study examines a representative sample of innovative projects funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in an effort to identify some of the factors that contribute to constructive change in the schools. In particular, the study investigates local takeover of Title III programs and attempts to determine why some programs are absorbed by local school systems, while other Title III programs are not. By examining how adopted and nonadopted innovative programs differ in their development, organization, dissemination, local leadership, and state support, the study identifies particular strategies, roles, and procedures that aid or hinder the adoption of educational innovations. Data for the study were gathered from a stratified random sample of 12 of the 38 Title III programs funded in Massachusetts for the three-year period 1971-74. (Author/JG)
