Improving Compensatory Education Through Changes in ESEA Title I; Discussion Draft.
Stanford Research Inst., Menlo Park, CA. Educational Policy Research Center.
This paper considers the following methods for altering ESEA Title I to improve compensatory education: increasing participation of secondary students; designing longitudinal projects that follow children through the grades; encouraging evaluations to follow children longitudinally, and to assess sustained effects; experimenting with projects to use the summer months in a more productive way; and creating "legal" alternatives to pullout programs. Options are presented for accomplishing each goal. Each option describes actions that could be taken to bring Title I more in line with research findings about compensatory education. General encouragement of positive change is discussed as an alternative if these options are found to be unacceptable. Resource materials, sample legislation, and additional discussion of options are appended. (MK)
