Follow Through Program 1977-1978. Evaluation Report.
Dederick, Judith Garrettson; And Others
The report evaluates the Follow Through Program in New York City, a federally-funded early childhood program with wide-ranging services and extensive goals. This evaluation considers not only the academic achievement of students in this program but also factors such as classroom dynamics, teacher attitudes, children's self-esteem, and parental perceptions. It reports that the results of the Follow Through program were largely successful, in that students involved had positive school experiences and generally matched or exceeded the normative rate of academic growth. It is also reported that teachers and parents reacted favorably to the program. Appendices include evaluation instruments and data and analysis tables supplementary to the ones given in the main body of the text. (Author/WP)
