Hinckley, Ronald H.
In this booklet, the highlights of Report No. 3 (see UD 018 835) on Compensatory Education (CE) are summarized in text and tables. Results reported include the following: (1) proportionally, CE selection is highest among the poor for both math and reading; (2) CE selection is proportionally higher for low achievers; (3) the greatest number of students selected for CE come from the low-income and low achiever group; (4) teacher judgment plays a large role in selection; (5) a significant relationship exists between students' economic status and educational achievement; (6) students from impoverished homes attend one week less school than other students; and (7) family economic status is related to the number of hours spent in reading classes of various sizes. In addition, effects of non-academic programs are evaluated and the progress of the Sustaining Effects Study on CE is outlined. (Author/WI)
