Alexander, Kern; And Others
The literature on research and development of programs relevant to the area of compensatory education is reviewed and summarized in this report, which was designed to provide information for the state of Florida in planning compensatory programs. The review is divided into four sections concerning administration and organization, home/school relationship, instructional organization and procedures, and classroom environment related to compensatory education. The summaries of the research include these points: key administrative characteristics for successful compensatory education programs are said to include systematic planning, strong leadership, appropriate teacher training, utilization of resources, and the need for communication; parent involvement can be effective; and major characteristics said to effect achievement include diagnosis of strengths and weaknesses, specification of goals and objectives, and instructional time and engaged time. Appendixes include descriptions of site visitations, comparisons of the characteristics of exemplary compensatory education programs with the district planned programs of the state compensatory education program, and the site visitation form and questionnaire.
