Student Economic and Educational Status and Receipt of Educational Services. Technical Report No. 3 from the Study of the Sustaining Effects of Compensatory Education on Basic Skills.
Hinckley, Ronald H.; And Others
In this report, findings related to the process of selecting students for compensatory education (CE) programs on basic skills, and the economic and educational status of students selected are recorded. Chapter I explains the principle variables considered in research: family, economic status, reading and math CE selection status, teacher judgment of student CE need, kinds and amounts of educational services offered to and received by students, exposure to non-academic CE services, and early childhood education and experiences. Chapters II through V examine each of the variables and the relationships between them in detail, with abundant charts and tables to substantiate each finding. Chapter VI summarizes the CE research to date and offers recommendations for proposed alterations in the educational and economic criteria to expand the number of students targeted for CE.
