The Follow Through Planned Variation Experiment: What is the Pay-Off?
Tucker, Eugene
This paper, written with a historical perspective, considers the impact of the Follow Through program on disadvantaged students. Social and economic conditions, attitudes, and political issues in disadvantaged communities are addressed. The target groups, fiscal decisions, and financial outlays under the Economic Opportunity Act are critically analyzed. The administration of the Follow Through program by the U.S. Office of Education (USOE) is examined. The roles and impact of parental involvement in the educational process are presented. The various policy changes of the program as a result of different Federal administrations are explored. The problems, implementation, and impact of the program relative to educational research strategies are discussed. A retrospective review of the length, nature, and implementation of the Follow Through program is analyzed and evaluated. The roles of Local Education Agencies (LEA) are examined. The three way relationship between the USOE, the model developers, and the LEA's is discussed. A summary statement of recommendations prepared by the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders is contained in this report to indicate the scope of early intervention programs such as Follow Through.
