Emergency School Aid Act, Basic Project 1975-76. Research and Evaluation Report, V. 10 n. 11, March 1977.
This is a report of a program funded under the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA). The program was designed to aid the Atlanta, Georgia School System in the integration process and to aid pupils in overcoming their academic deficiences due to racial isolation. The program provided individual assistance in reading and mathematics to minority students. The overall goal of the program was that pupils in the remedial education program for grades one through seven in all participating schools exhibit a significant gain in the basic academic skills. Corollary objectives, selection procedures, assignment of staff, remedial instruction procedures, staff training, parental and community participation, basic expenditures, conclusions, and recommendations are described. Detailed information, tabled and explained in the report, indicates that the program was a successful approach to overcoming many of the handicaps imposed by previous racial isolation of these students.
