National Evaluation of the PUSH for Excellence Project: Phase 1. Program Descriptions.
American Institutes for Research in the Behavioral Sciences, Washington, DC.
Based on a field study conducted from March 1979 to June 1979, this document describes the PUSH for Excellence projects in three demonstration sites: Chicago, Kansas City, and Los Angeles. The PUSH for Excellence Program is intended to increase student motivation and responsibility, create an atmosphere of order and discipline in the public schools, and provide the opportunity for youth to obtain quality education. Information for this report was gathered by reviewing program documentation, interviewing project staff and other key actors at each site, and observing day-to-day program operations and special events. These activities were preliminary steps in the design of a national evaluation of the PUSH for Excellence Project. Each description contained here begins with a narrative detailing the origins, goals, and special features of the site. Then summaries of program activities in individual school components are presented. (Author/JM)
