New York State Programs of Postsecondary Opportunity, 1975-76. Summary of Reports, Analysis, and Regents' Recommendations.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This paper provides an analysis of the activities of the postsecondary opportunity programs in New York State. The four programs serving disadvantaged populations in 1975-76 were: College Discovery; Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge; the Educational Opportunity Program; and the Higher Education Opportunity Program. Approximately $33,928,000 was appropriated by the state of New York to serve a projected enrollment of 32,700 students in these four programs. The population served by the programs was nontraditional with 55% blacks and 22% Spanish origin students. All programs provided the students with a full range of remedial, developmental and supportive courses, tutoring and counseling. In 1975-76, the year in which there was an increase in language arts courses, the quality of student achievement was similar to that of the previous year. Financial support, however, was smaller for all programs in 1975-76. Recommendations are made in this report in the areas of enrollment patterns, funding, academic supportive services and employment opportunities for graduates. (Author/AM)
