Programs for the Disadvantaged in Texas. ESEA Title I, 1974-75. Annual Report.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Evaluation.
Fifteen tables present data on Texas Title I programs. Information provided includes basic statistics for 1965-75, Title I programs for 1974-75, participants in ESEA Title I funded programs by grade level, expenditures and participation in instructional activities, noninstructional support services, personnel salaried through Title I, statistical data regarding Title I district sample, reading and mathematics achievement data, participation of pupils in nonpublic schools in Title I funded activities, personnel in nonpublic schools salaried through Title I, expenditure of funds, participation in summer activities, expenditure of funds for summer programs, and a summary of Title I funds expended in 1974-75. Reading is noted as continuing to receive the most attention. All grade levels are reported to show a gain from pretest to posttest in reading achievement with more than 50 percent of the pupils gaining 1.0 or more months of instruction. The tenth year of programs for educationally disadvantaged children funded under Title I is said to have seen a continued decrease in the number of children served in the programs. Attempts are reported to have been made to focus programs on those pupils with the greatest educational disadvantagement. Of the 9,328 teachers and aides providing instruction in direct contact with pupils, only slightly more than half are reported to have received special preparation for working with the disadvantaged.
