Compensatory Education Study. Final Report to Congress from the National Institute of Education.
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This report concludes a series of interim reports presenting findings from over 35 research projects on compensatory education programs. It completes the analysis of the study areas of funds allocation, service delivery, student development, and program administration, and provides both follow-up findings and additional information on Title I operations. Chapter I addresses the feasibility and effects of changing the current formula of within-district allocation procedures, one comparison being between poverty-based and achievement-based allocation strategies. Chapter II compares the training and experience of regular and compensatory education teachers and examines the degree to which Title I funds are used for training purposes. In Chapter III, test data are examined in order to determine whether the apparent effectiveness of the compensatory education instruction remains constant over a full year. A new area of report findings, the role of the Parent Advisory Councils, is explored in Chapter IV. Regulations governing the councils, the ways in which States and districts implement these regulations, and the actual operation of the councils as seen by parent participants are analyzed. In the final chapter, the local administration of the Title I, especially district and school planning and evaluation activities, is described. Statistical tables are included throughout the report.
