Project Inspire. ESEA Title III Evaluation. Final Report.
Walder, Leopold O.; And Others
The purpose of this report is to provide information on the findings of the evaluation of Project Inspire, a compensatory education program at Francis Junior High School, D.C., aimed at overcoming deficiencies in reading, writing, arithmetic, oral expression, and other academic areas. Review of documents, formal and informal interviews, questionnaires, and direct observations were methods developed and used to assess the correspondence between objectives of the program and its accomplishments. Findings derived from formal analyses of available data showed a program that had made progress toward achieving some of its objectives. Recommendations of the report include the following: that multimedia counseling programs, procedures to reward academic achievement, data collection relating to absenteeism, dropouts, and suspensions, and the referral of disruptive students be continued; that student service committees be reactivated; that efforts be made to initiate work in the child abuse and neglect component of the project; and, that the design of the project be reviewed by an external evaluator before project start-up.
